Hi all, Team Digital have some cool news on some excellent workshops coming up. I am going to two of Les Walklings, hedaman!!
There is 2 positions left for the Capture One workshop.
This seminar presents a comprehensive overview of Capture One 5, Phase One’s latest version of their legendary software. Highlights of the seminar include Capture One’s exceptional image quality, and the logical and professional workflow it facilitates. RAW, TIFF and JPEG files are processed non-destructively, tethered shooting and batch processing are fully supported, and special tools such as the Colour Editor, High Dynamic Range, Lens Correction and Skin Tone Enhancer produce images of unrivalled beauty, accuracy and processing efficiency.
Also we have the free Printing workshops running on the 30th March. Les is speaking so they must come.
First Steps Seminar 9.30am-12.45pm
Understanding the key elements to printing success – An introductory seminar for
photographers looking to get serious about producing quality output.
Fine Art Printing Seminar 1.45 to 4.45pm
This seminar critically introduces the fine print in the age of digital reproduction. It analyses and evaluates the finest available materials and combines them with advanced editing techniques and print processes to produce prints of exquisite quality. Simultaneous contrast, optical illusions and other visual effects are incorporated into sophisticated image editing techniques. Different criteria for evaluating print quality, and the creative preparation of images for inkjet and digital-photographic printing are also examined.
We’ll have some amazing offers on printers ,media,and coating never before seen in WA.
Cheers Christian you legend!! haha

These markers floated by on our Dampier boat trip whilst on the pilbara project. I was shooting with Tony Hewitt on the front of the boat when this took our eye. Wonder what Tony got. Single capture with the Nikon D3x. The image was overlaid with an aerial pic I took of the mangrove flats just south of town. It was also stylised with Nik colour efex pro. See Team Digital if you want to buy a copy. I seem to be using it on every image these days.

Have you ever seen a bigger bunch of photo geeks in your life. Should we be looking up to these guys or laughing at them……… ok lets laugh. All we need in there is Ken Duncan and Peter Lik and it would be a circus!
Thanks to the very talented Nicole Yardley for the use of the photos. Nicole was one of the PH Photography students who joined us for some cool adventures. Her photos look mint, geez she must of had a great teacher ;-0)
Well maybe just great talent.

Benny at Team Digital has told me about some specials they are having on Manfrotto gear till the end of February, 15% off in fact.
Also there is some good news and bad news .
Bad news first Team Digital are postponing the ITeazer Night that was running on the 24th Feb. Some products they were going to announce wont be here in time . So they are running it in May instead. I will be keen to get to that.
Good news is that Les Walkling has been confirmed . He doing a number of thing for Team Digital as part of the FotoFreo 2010 program.
The main one will be a hands on workshop on Fine Art Printing all the details are on their blog. If you haven’t seen Les in action make sure you get along to this. I hope to be going too.
They will also have a free Fine Art Printing Seminar running which will be on the Team Digital blog (see my links bar).
Thing that may interest you also are a Seminar on Rips and Profiling on the Thursday the 1st April. And directly after that Capture One training. Man two more things I need to attend. Geez I better ask the wife first, I have already had a few trips away this year.

Hi all, sorry for no posts but I have been in and around Port Hedland shooting with Tony Hewitt, Les Walkling, Peter Eastway and my bro.
We are having a brilliant time and getting some pretty nice light. I must say it is pretty interesting shooting with these blokes and seeing how they work. We have one Hasselblad H3d being used by Les, a Phase one and Alpa combo being used by Pete, Tony and I are shooting Nikon D3x’s (thanks Julie from Nikon for the gear) and of course some Canon gear being used to film everything.
We have been to Karratha and the Dampier Archipelago, had Heli flights, Light plane flights, boat trips and tours to the big BHP plant in PH. Some great material and to see Les get all frothed up is just brilliant. The guy is a legend and I was hoping he enjoyed what we have been shooting.
One thing I find shooting with such notable photographers as we have here is I always am wondering what they are shooting and should I be checking it out too. It can be a little intimidating. We have also had some of the previous photography students joining us which has been great fun. Simon, Nicole, Faye and Judith, remember those names they are the next big thing! Well in Port Hedland anyway, Pete is still the next big thing, he is just taking his time getting there.
Off to Marble Bar in half an hour. We are expecting thunderstorms and about 42 degrees. We are pretty excited. There is so much to photograph out here you just need the good light and a fresh pair of eyes.
Here is a couple of pics of the boys in action.

Hi guys, see Ben’s post on the discussion about Shades. It does work if you use it right. I knew if Les Walkling recommended it it would be worthwhile. The guy is a genius and those who doubt him just need to go to one of his workshops. He is god when it comes to colour management. You better believe it.
I would love to get him back for another workshop, hands up those who would be keen to come along.
Thanks to Ben from Team Digital for showing us the light or should that be showing us how to dim the light

This was taken in an old hotel in New Norcia. We stopped there for breakfast and I had a sniff around and just loved this scene. It was a bloody good breakfast too. The old hotel was quite spooky and you would have to think haunted. The light was stylized using curves.
Ok it isn’t wildflowers but they will be coming.
