Jan 2010 : Saturday
We are just starting an amazing HDR workshop down here in Austin. It won’t be the same as being there, but a DVD will be available soon after, so be sure to sign up for the free newsletter so you can find out first!
The Austin workshop ended up being a fairly exclusive event, and we priced it at $1,000 per attendee. I knew it would be popular and that there was an enthusiastic group of people out there, but I did not expect the whole thing to sell out in 11 minutes (after crashing the StuckInCustoms server for 30 minutes after it became available!)! I’m excited the date has finally arrived and I am very excited to teach people, make new friends, and do my best to take their photography to the next level.
My other workshop next weekend with Scott Bourne in Florida is also sold out! There may be last-min cancellations, so watch for that. That will be a fun event and I look forward to meeting a bunch more people and sharing this new sport with them.
People always ask about potentially doing other workshops. I have no immediate plans, except perhaps one in New Zealand next month.
Appearance on Sunday night at BookPeople
On Sunday evening, come to BookPeople before 7 PM to the Austin Photography Group. Feel free to come by and hear my little talk on HDR. I’m also happy to meet people, sign books, and this sort of thing. Come to the presentation hall on the third floor. See you there!
New Limited Edition Print Available
Every week, we release a new print, and this week’s is One Night in Bangkok. This was shot very soon after I arrived in Thailand. It took me forever to find a good view of the famous Wat Arun. But then, not only did I find the perfect spot, but it happened to be on the deck of a delish Italian restaurant.
Daily Photo – Getting a Bottle at the Bar
What a cool place! This is another one of those photos that just has amazing detail of the incredible decor. It is an underground bar in Kuala Lumpur that I could not stop taking photos inside! As you can see, there are no bad angles in a place like this, so it is very fun to compose.
I’ll have a little challenge that I will give out at the workshop where we all shoot the same subject matter to see who can get the most interesting composition. This bar is a very cool place because there are a ton of interesting compositions, but also some bad compositions. I’m not sure one can actually “teach” composition… but I suppose I can try!
