Photo talk at NTU this Friday
The Long and Short of Nature Photography:
A computer vision guy’s journey down the rabbit hole
Date/Time: Friday 16th July 2010, 3pm
Venue: NTU, LT3
Tan Kar Han earned his doctorate in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He works in HP Labs where he focuses on creating seamless, immersive, and intuitive experiences for remote collaboration. Prior to joining HP, Kar Han was Manager of Algorithms Group at Epson R&D USA, where he invented View Projection, a method for automatically setting up light displays on surfaces with arbitrary geometry and reflectance. At MERL, he co-invented Multi-Flash Imaging, a technique for reliably detecting depth discontinuities from a 3D scene. He also co-invented the Virtual Structures algorithm which is recognized today as a fundamental contribution to the science of formation control.
Kar Han bought his first DSLR in 2006, after his imaging work started him on the quest for the perfect picture. Of course, he finds that his first DSLR shots were worse than his compact point-and-shoot photos. Over the past few years, Kar Han found that he is most passionate about two kinds of nature photography: landscapes and birds. In this informal talk, Kar Han will share his experience shooting and processing some of his favorite shots. Kar Han’s photo website is http://www.tanphoto.com and he would be happy to talk about any of the photos posted.

Is the talk open to public?
Can I just walk in on Friday to attend?
