Jillian and ShaneWe have had many great experiences with Wayne Miller Photography. He shot our wedding and did an excellent job of capturing our special day in such a creative and artistic way. He is very accommodating and professional, which made it easy to feel comfortable with him behind the lens. We have always had more than enough great images to choose. He uses many different lighting techniques and is amazing at photo editing. I will cherish the pictures he has taken of us just as much as the memories and I feel lucky to have worked with such a great photographer. Wayne is truly talented and I would highly recommend him. - Jillian and Shane Keith

Wayne was absolutely amazing to work with. He was very patient with me and helped me with posing and angles for my dance photos. I have had no model training at all, but he was able to instruct me into taking some great pictures and I am extremely satisfied with the results. His use of color makes the pictures he takes seem to glow on their own and is one of the many reasons I wanted to work with him in the first place. Now I have many more reasons to want to work with him again! He was very friendly and professional and even took the time to sit down with me over tea to discuss exactly what I wanted out of the shoot. He then added in his creative ideas, which made the whole photo shoot go above and beyond my expectations. I definitely will want to work with Wayne again.  -Crystal Berger

I am impressed with how creative Wayne is.  He took a beautiful photo of me with my motorcycle; it was so good I went back for some business photos! I was also impressed with all of the awards his photos have won. Plus, he is a good guy.  Rand Stephens Dec. 2009

JoanI’ve known Wayne for many years through our local camera club and also after his having outgrown the club, as a professional. He is one of the most creative photographers I have met, blowing us away with his exquisitely lighted images of models, extraordinary composites, and his extensive knowledge of Photoshop.When he set up shop for portrait photography, I immediately thought of him whenI needed a decent picture of myself, an elderly woman of 74. His studio is thoroughly professional as are his work ethics. He was very kind to me, taking many different angles and points of view, with and without glasses. He also tried any suggestions of pose that I made. I ended up with about 23 images that were all usable, but we chose one for wrinkle removal, making me look at least 10 years younger. Good work, Wayne and thanks! Joan Field, Danville, CA

Alliie AndersonWayne was a delight to work with. He is very down to earth and made me feel right in my element. His professional attitude when it came to getting the right pose really helped me out just by telling me to move my head a few inches to make the shot. I have no doubt that with his direction, we made some great photographs with a definite feel to each of them. I can't wait to work with Wayne in the future to get some very different shoots with his great eye. Allie Anderson

Denny Weigand  - East Bay Smug: Lightroom in one hour or less? Why do HDR?
Wayne knows his stuff. It is EXTREMELY difficult to engage everyone all the time. If some individuals lack interest, or the ability to grasp the subject, they SHOULD leave early. Certainly questioning the speakers photographic abilities is beyond the scope of the listener. Remember, this program is free, so you can get up and leave without losing anything. Congratulations to Gus for bringing such a qualified speaker, and hope there are more like Wayne in the future.

As an experienced and advanced photoshop user who is considering the switch to lightroom, I'm sold. Up until this point I only used LR 30 day trial. Presentations on complex programs like lightroom and photoshop can fusturate attendees who are looking for more in depth information. I felt the presentation was perfect for me because it really gave me a good overview of what I'm missing out on and has encouraged me to take the next step and experiment more with LR.  East Bay Smug: Lightroom in one hour or less? Why do HDR?

 

  I'm about to start scanning 27 years of slides and had hoped I might be able to enroll in a workshop that would give me an overview of Lightroom. I was so pleased to attend last nights' meetup. It was, exactly, what I was looking for and it was FREE! Thank you Gus for this great opportunity and thank you Wayne for sharing your knowledge with us. Finding out about what can be done with HDR was very enlightning. Enjoyed both, didn't have any problem following what was being said and look forward to attending as many of these as I can.

 My friends and I all thought the slideshows were beautiful, fun and dynamic. Wayne was thorough and able to answer questions to my satisfaction during the break. I feel confident I can actually do HDR now whereas it was this big complicated mystery before. Thanks for breaking it down Wayne! And thanks for the tips and examples of the various outputs from different HDR programs. Very helpful!

Great presentation. Good information on this magical process. I walked away learning a lot more about HDR then I thought I would. Thank you.  Michael Pina
SF Smug Meetup 3-30-2010

Hi folks Yes I too really enjoyed the meet up. I realized that even though he said the scene had to be good to get a good HDR image, I always thought it had to have lots of color to get a dramatic effect. I now know looking at his HDR images, that is not the case. Some of his images did not have a huge contrast of color yet were amazing to look at. I will be setting my camera for lots of bracketing and HRD shots in the very near future...  Thanks Again..KARL
