There is Always a Place for HDR!

Last Thursday I went and spoke to the Digital Dimensions & Beyond Photo Group in Kansas City.  

I will admit, I was very intimidated at first.  I had to speak to all levels from the beginner to the advanced and some have been taking photographs since before I was even a twinkle in my parent’s eyes.

I had to build a case for HDR to those who may have rejected it, rekindle flames in those who may have tried it and not liked it, and  inspire those who had never seen it.  It was a tough presentation, I called it “A Place 4 HDR“.  It was VERY well received and I was truly honored!

This presentation is about how HDR can have a place in any photographer’s workflow or style.  Not really a how to, more like a lecture style presentation. A bit different than what I am used to.

This group of individuals was very inspiring with a wealth of knowledge beyond imaginable. I was honored to present my passion to them and cannot wait to meet with them again!  Before the presentation started I asked the President of the group, John Caulfieldhow many would be expected.  He said anywhere between 30 and 50… 80 showed up!  Again, I am awe-struck and honored to have had such a great turnout from such a great group!

I certainly hope that by watching this you have either built a stronger case for it, rekindled a flame, or became inspired to do some more HDR!

If you have a camera club that would like me to come and speak, please contact me as I would be more than willing to try and work something out!
