HDR with Ben

In class with Ben Willmore today discussing High Dynamic Range (HDR.) We'll spend a little time discussing theory, camera setup, and shooting before we head out on location and try it out.

We'll update again with a few HDR results from this afternoon.

We also played around a little with the animation panel in Photoshop. A quick example is shown below.

A Great Week of Online Training

The video above is a show from John Canfield, one of our instructors here at the Institute. He will be teaching a three day workshop in late May demonstrating how to make one.

Thanks to everyone who made the web based training a huge success over the last week. The training schedule for the next quarter will be out very soon and will include some incredible courses.

We will also be starting a weekly training hour. Thanks to some of our clients who suggested a recurring session you can tune in to every week just like your favorite TV show. The online training will be a one hour block covering any and all things photographic.

As a heads up we are hosting a huge Open House the 8th of May from 11-8. The facility will be open to the public and there should be some good fun and training. We are running free demos of Photoshop™ and Lightroom™ all day. We'll also be shooting in the studio and drawing for some fun giveaways.

If that wasn't enough from 5:30-9 on the 9th of May, we are hosting a party here at the school. More free demos, food, wine, and live music to set the atmosphere. Come on down and join us.

Hello Again

Back in class this week with Kevin Ames and the Art of Photographing Women. This is an advanced studio lighting and interaction class.

Very little time to write as we are shooting constantly. I'll try and get some more shots up soon.
