On June 23rd, Seniors and Cadets free #ationa] Capita]
Ning attended their summer encampment at Pittsburg Air
Reserve hse in Pennsylvania.

AF Top Lensman
Instr.uct.s Local
Look at thezredit lime on most of the photographs in
the Air Force lithograph series and the odds are ten to one
it will read 'USAF ~hoto by Ken Hackman'.
Hr. Hackman, dean" of Air Force photographers, is
assigned to Headquarters, Aerospace Audiovisual Service,
Norton AFt, Cal. He has photographed thousands of Air
Force people free the Chief of Staff to Airmen in basic
training and virtually every aricraft in the USAF inventory
during the past three decades.
To receive personal, one-to-one training by this
gifted lensean .ouid be the dream of any amateur
photog, apher. This~ hoxsver, mas exactly the good fortune
of Nation~ Capital ilng Pu~lic Affairs Officer Hal. Amanda
"B. Anderson recently
Free across the country, the Air Force brought
together 13 of its most promising young photographers for
1aft eight-day crash-course in the finer techniques of taking
pictures, naj. Anderson became a eeiber of the select
student body ,hen National ~apital Ning Liaison Officer|
Lt. Col. Stanley Yoyiaz~aLis discovered that one of the Air
Force personnel would not be able to attend. She became
the only non-professiOnai photographer in the class.
The course, held at the 1361st Audiovisual Squadron in
Arlington. Y~.. just across the PotoJac River from ~olling
AFt, covered a]! the aspects of good photography from
perspective and posing to balance and bounce flash.
Fine; exam consisted of shooting several rolls of file
portraying four subjects: Patriotism| Friendship, Love and
Professionallse.
#bile Hal. Anderson may not nou qualify as a
professiona~ photgrapher simply by virtue of having taken
the cou,se, she certainly does qualify as an amateur eith
the finest training available free the Air Force.
