HDR Workshop

HDR Workshop Group

HDR Workshop Group, originally uploaded by DaveWilsonPhotography.

Yesterday was the long-awaited HDR Workshop. This had been organised to coincide with the show and was held in the classroom at the gallery. We spent an hour or so discussing HDR background and how to shoot for HDR then headed down to the Capitol for a couple of hours of taking pictures. After lunch, we returned to the gallery and spent the rest of the day processing and looking at the results.

The folks who took part (click through the image for the list) did great work and produced some super images, some of which you will no doubt find on Flickr fairly soon.

After this class, I already have enough people interested to justify doing another so I’m planning on holding a second workshop some time in September or October. If you are interested, use the contact page and drop me a line.

Exhibition Report

The first part of my exhibition at Dragonfly Gallery at Rosedale is almost over. On Monday, part of the show will be taken down to be replaced by student photos from April’s workshop led by Raul Touzon. This was my first serious, themed show in a “real” gallery and it was a great pleasure and honour to hang my pictures in such a wonderful space. Thanks to owner Nina Mihm for the opportunity!

The top image here was taken by local photographer friend Rusty Jackson who arrived with a camera and kindly took a few shots. I also had my camera there so I grabbed an image of Rusty in return but this was one of only about 4 exposures I took that evening since I was rather busy talking to guests instead. By the way, if you have not seen Rusty’s work, I would strongly recommend a trip to his site where you will find some of the best examples of travel photography you are likely to find anywhere.

To all who came to see the show over the last couple of weeks, many thanks. If you’ve not seen it yet, please drop by the gallery between now and July 8th since you will still be able to view the best images along with a collection of other outstanding pictures from the workshop.
