A couple of months ago, I mentioned that David Nightingale of Chromasia fame was looking into coming to Austin to give a couple of workshops early next year. I’m delighted to report that the planning is now complete and the workshops are definitely on.
David will be teaching a 1 day “HDR Crash Course” on Friday, February 4th followed by a 2 day “Creating Dramatic Images” on Saturday & Sunday, February 5th and 6th. Both classes are at Dragonfly Gallery at Rosedale.
For more details, check out my workshops page. The classes are both filling very fast so please let me know as soon as possible if you want to take part.
I’ve been a fan of David Nightingale’s work and his inspirational Chromasia photoblog for years so am very excited at the possibility of having him come to Austin to give a workshop on advanced post-processing techniques some time in early 2011. This would likely be a a couple of classes – a 1 day intro to HDR on a Friday followed by a 2 day class on advanced post processing. The class would be limited to 16-20 photographers. The numbers suggest we can do this for somewhere in the region of $350 per person for the 2 day class and $180 or so for the one day workshop.
Although nothing is finalised yet,I’m keen to gauge the level of interest to get an idea of how feasible this is. Would you be interested and do you feel this price is reasonable? I’m not asking for a commitment just now, merely an idea of how popular such a workshop would be.
If you’ve not seen David’s work, I strongly encourage you to take a look at his blog and portfolio. His post-processing techniques are the stuff of legend in the digital photography community and his use of HDR is superb. He is the author of “Practical HDR” and winner of many international awards.
