Talk at CapMac Photo SIG this Thursday

by on Feb.20, 2011, under Photography

I’ll be giving a talk on HDR photography this coming Thursday evening at the Austin CapMac Advanced Photography SIG meeting. Come along to the parish hall of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection at 6:30pm and join the fun.

My plan was to revamp the talk and update it so that anyone who had previously heard it at Hill Country Photography Club or Austin Shutterbugs would find new material to listen to and new pictures to see but my laptop hard disk decided to die yesterday so I may be dragging pictures from Flickr and winging it if Dell doesn’t come through on their “next business day” service promise or I don’t manage to get my backup restored in time. My fingers are crossed!

As another upshot of this failure, the photoblog is going to be quiet for the next few days. The failure occurred as I was exporting a batch of images for the next week’s posts so, unfortunately, they will be delayed until I get everything back up and running too.

I can’t help noticing the irony of me having a catastrophic PC hardware failure (in a 1 year old drive – I’ve never had a hard disk fail in less than 5 years before) the very week I’m supposed to be speaking to a Mac user group. Oh well…

HDR Presentation – March 18th in San Marcos

by on Mar.09, 2010, under Photography

I’m honoured to have been invited to speak at the Hill Country Photography Club in San Marcos at 7pm on March 18th. I’ll be talking about HDR, starting with a very small amount of theory then moving on to workflow and a show-and-tell of some of my favourite HDR images. You can find the meeting agenda here.

I’ve not visited the Hill Country club before due to a previous Thursday evening commitment and the fact that it’s a long drive from my work but I’m very much looking forward to meeting some more of the folks whose work I have been following from afar for several years. Take a look at their site and, assuming you live in the Austin/San Marcos area, I’m willing to bet that you recognise quite a few of the images in their gallery already. If you fly through ABIA, you are certain to have seen several.

The club is happy for visitors to attend so please come along and join the fun if you are in the area.
