Hi Julia, Darran and Pearce,
As is always the case, I have had the most wonderful time at the workshop. Learnt heaps, and can’t believe I have actually pixel bent an image!! Yeah!! Will have another attempt later today at a second one. Darran and Pearce, thank you both for helping me get out of difficulties with the images and the computer – I really do appreciate and value your help. Thanks, too, to you all for allowing us to come and spend workshop time at your home – that includes Frazer, too – as it really is fantastic to be in such a beautiful environment for a workshop. Fran
You are a legend and that is one of the reasons I continue to travel with you with such confidence.
Very best wishes
Thanks again for another great workshop – Kangaroo Island had a surprisingly wide range of subjects making every day a new experience. When I got home CS6 had arrived. Can’t wait to dive in and explore with my new images.
I have received nothing but great feedback from the others about the workshop and your ability to communicate complex issues simply. That is the first time we had done something like that, but it is clear that we have stirred the interest of others to do more of these little workshops/photo excursions. Thanks. I actually got more technically out of the workshop than I expected. You encouraged me to again use flash. Manual works well for flash, particularly in poor light. There were a number of Lightroom tools that I had either not used or used very infrequently. Upping the ISO to reduce the range of light intensity between background and flashed subject. Be prepared to use f5.6 a bit more than my usual range of f5.6 to f8. It was also fun.
