Thank you for following this blog over the last week. The Blog was posted so interested people could follow and see what attendees were doing at the PODAS event. It’s amazing how many people have watched what we have been doing. For the most part I have received nothing but positive feedback about the event. It seeems though that some people look at this blog and the photos and think they are indicative of what was shot with the Phase One camera gear.
The images posted on this blog are basically snap shots for lack of better words to show what attendees were doing the instruction and fun in progress. These ARE NOT final images from Phase One cameras or the attendees. They were shot by me with a small camera while I was shooting with my Phase One camera for the sole purpose of showing attendees in action and how much fun everyone was having. The couple of Phase One images that are on the blog are by me showing a landscape or a quick model shot. Downsizing and changing color space for blog images downgrade some of these shots considerably. Please enjoy the blog and see what the workshop entailed and do not make judgments on the photography based on shots made for a blog.
Many comments were made about the model shots. This was not a fashion shoot. Just an opportunity to take some people pictures, which most landscape shooters never do. The images taken at the location and by the hotel pool were not included on the post and are exceptionally good, not to mention the fun had by all. Look for these when we post the gallery. Once again what I showed on the blog was to document attendees taking pictures and the environment we were photographing in.
Also, at this time we have not posted any images shot my instructors, staff or attendees using the Phase One gear. We do hope in the near future to post a gallery on the Phase One web site showing off the quality and versatility of the images captured by everyone at this event. Many attendees will be working on the excellent images taken for weeks to come.
We have a lot of interest in future PODAS workshops. We will announce these through several channels when we have decided on locations, instructors and such. In the meantime if you’d like any information about the PODAS event you amy email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for visiting our blog. We tried something different in many respects and all of us can say it was a remarkable experience.
