Video and Sound for DSLR Photographers Workshop

WORKSHOP by “women with a movie camera”

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be one of the three tutors on the new two day workshop organised by the Women With A Movie Camera. The course is called Video and sound for DSLR photographers. Needless to say, this workshop is open for everyone (I’ve been asked several times if it’s for women only, so I wanted to make sure everyone understand that it’s for men and women!).

Images from Armenia. Signed and embossed prints, made available at a special rate for the Thatcham Photographic Club talk in June. 24cm x 16cm (roughly) archival and embossed print, signed, £25.00. Photo: Edmond Terakopian (These prints were made on a Canon iPF6300 during the testing of the machine which is why I can offer them at this reduced rate).

Here is a recording of my online seminar (webinar from November 30th, 2011) showing how I use Nik Software’s plugins and Aperture for my image processing.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be holding a Nik Software Webinar on my workflow on Wednesday, November the 30th at 7pm GMT. Click HERE to register for my free seminar.

As always, I will be showcasing new and different work, explaining my techniques on image processing and the thought processes behind the technicality of image processing. As an example, I shall show how I processed the portrait of business fashion consultant Gabriella Piccinni from Modaview.

My workflow is based around Aperture and Nik Software’s Viveza 2, Silver Efex Pro 2 and Sharpner 3 in the whole, although I do occasionally use Photoshop. Those who use Photoshop or Lightroom will still have a lot to gain and the processes and using the plugins is virtually identical. There will be a Q&A session at the end.

Hope you can join me on my last webinar for this year.

The workshop is called “Leica M9 Interactive” and is aimed at professional DSLR users and experienced DSLR enthusiasts who would like to experience what it’s like to handle and shoot with a Leica M9. Part of the complimentary three hour course will involve  taking photographs on a Leica M9 and lens which will be loaned to you.
