HDR Presentation Tonight!
Tonight I am guest speaker for the Chinese Photographic Society of Australia (CPSA). I am doing a presentation on my HDR workflow and I am going to show them how I achieve the clean and realistic HDR results. I am also going to give them a sneak peak at a lightroom process with a single RAW file to get a HDR type of look, another reason shooting RAW is so important. If you’re a member then I look forward to meeting you tonight, if you’re not a member… then maybe you should join! Anyway… I am really looking forward to speaking for them tonight.
If you’re in a camera club and would like me to come along as a guest speaker please let me know.
Today’s iCandy – the Eye of the Opera
Vivid Sydney is one of the most photographed events right now in Sydney. I bet there are cameras being dusted off that have not seen the outside world for some time now getting a little use! I personally have made a real effort to get into the city a few times to photograph it from different angles and subjects, and will probably head in again before the week is out for a final shoot. This one is zoomed in for something different.
