Hudson River Photography Workshops: Week One Wrap Up

Week One of my Hudson River Photography Workshops came to a close tonight – after a great day in the studio, wonderful pizza party and nice sunset. As always, we had a small, intimate group – so everyone had the opportunity to shoot and get personal digital darkroom advice.

We are preparing for Week Two, which begins in two weeks. Can't wait for the photo fun to begin – again!

Here are some shots from the workshop. Above: New Croton Dam (HDR). Photographer: Keith Plumstead.

Above: Keith Plumstead sizes up his first HDR pano print – which I printed on my Canon IPF 6350 printer.

Above: Controlling the light in the studio. Westcott light controllers were used to control the light from a flash. The little device that's attached to my flash (top right) is the Rogue FlashBender. The Rogue FlashBender is an very affordable accessory for enhancing the light from a flash. Photographer: Susan Sammon.

Thanks to everyone for making the event productive, successful, rewarding and... fun!

Explore the light,

Looks like you had a lot of fun. I'm still planning to make it out to one of your workshops, I've always enjoyed your teaching style!

It was a great workshop Rick. Thanks again to you and Susan for making it so much fun. It was amazing to spend a few days with a group who were all passionate about improving our photography. We covered so much ground! I'll be using what I learned for a long time to come.
