HDR Workshop – September 12

Better Days

Better Days

A few months ago, I was approached by a local photography group to present a workshop on my high dynamic range (HDR) techniques and I jumped at the chance.

I love shooting and processing HDR images and I love sharing my knowledge with those around me so why not combine those two things together and help others experience the joy of photography that I do?

Well, after some initial planning, the group decided that a HDR workshop wouldn’t bring out the crowd they were really hoping for and they dropped the idea. I, however, felt like I was being challenged and became even more passionate about the idea of holding a workshop here in Peoria. I knew I wanted to do something unique especially when it came to the location so that attendees had something to remember and images they couldn’t get anywhere else.

I called in a favor with one of the many contacts I’ve made in the marketing industry and after some back-and-forth, I was able to get special access for us to shoot at the Hanna City Work Camp, a former minimum security prison and juvenile detention facility located west of Peoria that was recently sold to the county by the State of Illinois. Let’s just say that with all the rundown buildings, tall grasses, barbed wire fences, and guard towers, this is surely to make for an awesome HDR class.
