Dr. Sanderson has held several physician leadership positions at Ministry Health Care.  He is currently the Director of Medical Informatics Operations and is the Executive Sponsor of the Electronic Health Record.  This Blog was initiated to share leadership experiences from a physician’s perspective.  Dr. Sanderson is a  graduate of the Physician Executive MBA Program at the University of Tennessee.

More recently the blog has focused on Dr. Sanderson’s photographs.

“Digital photography has had a profound impact on my images. Digital cameras and professional grade desktop printers have evolved to the point where I can control the entire process from image capture to printing. I learned that by controlling the entire process, I could produce images that satisfied me. Central Wisconsin is my home and is where I photograph the landscape about me. I particularly enjoy telling the story of how glaciers have transformed our Wisconsin landscape through my photography. In addition my “photographic eye” is attracted to landscapes that are bathed in early morning light or graced with unusual atmospheric conditions.

Like all photographers, I utilize available tools to craft images that match how my mind remembers the landscape. While no image can compare with the actual beauty of the scene it represents, I strive to achieve the same emotions that I felt when originally capturing the image.

I achieve the sharpest resolution possible when capturing the image by use of a tripod, a shutter timer and mirror lock up. All of these steps take time but allow the camera to be absolutely steady when capturing the image.

The only filter I use from time to time is a polarizing filter. The camera is unable to capture the same dynamic range of lightness and darkness as the human eye. To compensated, I typically take three separate exposures of each scene. When necessary, I utilize the three exposures to provide additional detail to portions of the scene in deep shadow or over exposed due to very bright light.

Photoshop is my image processing tool of choice. All images will have local/global adjustments for contrast and are sharpened based on how the image will be used or the print size.

I utilize special pigmented ink and archival paper that will allow the image to be enjoyed for years to come. I personally print most of my images. Larger images are outsourced locally to printers who share my attention to detail.”
