The Crimson Before the Party

Update: I am very excited about the HDR Workshop. Thanks for all the great feedback! Registration will open close to midnight next week at this time (The midnight between Thur and Fri… hehe… I know saying “midnight” can fall either way!). I’ll also update the full list of everything that will be included, the amazing venue, extra bonus post-processing “fun” time with me after hours, etc etc.

I was lucky enough, thanks to a friend, get entry to run around the Crimson Lounge in Chicago on a Saturday before they opened. I think maybe some of you have seen the other Chicago photos of this location… there were so many interesting things to shoot with great angles. That reminds me — did you know that if you scroll down and look on the right, you can click there to see photos from various locations around the world?

Speaking of shooting cool stuff inside of an amazing place, we have a secret event coming up in Austin in the beginning of December. But shhh… don’t tell anyone… I’ll announce more as the time gets closer. It’s going to be quite a party. It may or may not have something to do with a major book launch from someone you may or may not know.

The Crimson before the Party

  • Hopefully on a Friday or Sunday night since I will be out of work those days :)Great image, I love the texture in the floorboards.

  • Haha, way to be subtle about the secret event, Trey!

    Those seats look like they are meant for royalty! Great shot 🙂

  • Hi Trey

    Beautiful shot, looks even better when you see the original size, nice lighting.

    Good luck with the secret event 🙂

    All the best


  • Wonderful photo, Trey. Looks like a warm and comfy place to relax. Trisha, I hope you get to go here someday!!! (My niece that lives in Chicago). Thanks for sharing, great job as always!!

    Hi Trey,

    I’m relocating to Austin at the end of Nov and can’t wait to hopefully take advantage of all your secret events, photo walks, and possibly your workshop, too! I’ve never been to Austin, but your photos show it’s a fairly lively town!

    Hope to meet you one day,

  • Fantastic… thanks!

    Yes we will not keep it a secret for too much longer!

  • Jim

    You have it down pat….. excellent. I have been trying to emulate your indoor style. They are so smooth and sorta glowie….is that a word? Please check out my latest attempt.

    ANd thanks for coming up with and supporting a excellent resource for anyone interested in HDR excellence.
    Keep shooting.

    Love the warm colors in this photo, and the reflections. I want one of those beautiful lacy dividers for my house!

  • That bit on the left is very Twin Peaks.

  • Jim

    Thank you maestro. I humbly respect your judgement.

  • Jack Rice

    Seems like a really interesting place, the merging of different styles and influences in their interior design works almost peculiarly well; the rather oriental screens, the Victorian-style period furniture, the persian rugs and of course the exposed floorboards. Really work very well together, another really rather marvelous interior photograph.

  • Thanks!

    Fen – me too!

    Dan – yes it is… sweet Twin Peaks….

    Jack – thank you! 🙂
