Templestorm, and the Stunning Results from the HDR Workshop!

The Amazing HDR Workshop Results!

Trey Ratcliff HDR Workshop Group Photo

I told the HDR Workshop class last weekend, very sincerely, that I was quite impressed with their progress. It’s my first workshop, and I love teaching people, but I did not expect them to make so much progress so quickly. Mind you, we already had a few people that were already quite good, but even they picked up a bunch of new stuff. Without further ado, here is a random selection of some of the resulting shots from their newfound skills!

(and yes, we are making an HDR DVD of the workshop for those that could not attend the event!)

Also, a very special thanks to John P from One Man’s Blog (and especially Cali Lewis for the introduction!), Scott Kublin from ScottyCentral, and Alex Suarez, one of the aliens from Galaxy Quest.

Thanks Frederick Van for the Interview!

Hey that was a great interview! Hehe…  I just listened to it and forgot about all the HDR Controversy we addressed therein!  You can listen to it also from Frederick Van’s blog.  Thanks again for all the kind tweets and emails about the interview.  Even though I went out on a limb in many areas, I think they struck a chord… thanks again y’all.  And when I say “Internet” – I mean YOU! 🙂

Daily Photo – Templestorm

It’s hard to keep up with my students!  I feel they are catching up and surpassing me!  I won’t have it!  Hehe…  no no… my theory is that HDR will begin to splinter into a million different shards.  I can’t wait to see where each of them take the artform.

This is just outside of JogJakarta, Indonesia at an ancient temple called Prambanan.  It was the kind of place that has been sitting there waiting for me to bring my story-telling-machine there.  You have seen a few of my other shots of this place perhaps, just after the storm hit.  As I was leaving, I looked back over my shoulder to see this.  I sometimes forget as I walk away from things to turn around and look back, and I can see things I don’t expect.

    Love the pink and golden tones – yes, sometimes it’s always good to look back!! Think your hdr workshop looks like such fun and everyone did a super great job!Know you enjoyed it too!

  • Great post, and thanks Trey. I for one had an awesome time and would do it again in a heart beat! Keep up the great work, vision, and inspiration my friend 🙂

  • I am very upset with myself for being able to attend such a wonderful event. I live right here in Austin and missed it. 🙁 It looks like the turnout was outstanding and the works created during it were amazing! I can’t wait for the DVD to become available.

  • That should say not being able to attend 🙂

  • Thanks for sharing your beautiful temple photo, Trey!!! I looked at all the others’ photos and downloaded several to use as desktop wallpaper. They were all beautiful/good/fantastic/etc!!!! Thank you all for sharing your work, glad the workshop went so well!!
    Just a side note, please keep the people in Haiti in your prayers, they are so desperate for help, and it’s coming in so slowly, very sad!!

  • Trey looks like the folks in the workshop picked it up quite well! Thanks for all you do helping share this craft with the world!

  • Epic right after the sunset shot! Congrats Trey, you really nailed this one!

  • Hi Trey, thanks for the link…however, that is a sunrise shot and not a sunset shot from Acadia! 🙂 Workshop was great, thanks again.

  • Steve Popkin

    Had a great time in Austin Trey… Thanks for putting on a great workshop 🙂 Let me know when you make it down to Florida.

  • What an awesome sounding workshop, super HDR team Trey. My favorite shots from the group, were Michael Paolin’s for the composition/timing and Mark Schaffer’s sunset cause I’m a scenic addict.
