This posting is a bit late due to how busy we have all been on the Ireland PODAS workshop. As you can see from the earlier post I made the agenda for this PODAS leaves little time for rest. The group has been absolutely great. On Wednesday morning we slept in and were on the road to Dingle by 10AM. We reached Dingle and kicked into high gear. After checking into our rooms we enjoyed a nice lunch and then had an afternoon of fine programs. First on deck was Steve Gosling a fine art photographer from the UK. Steve’s program was absolutely inspiring. His photography and approach to capturing and making the image motivated everyone. It wasn’t long before we coined the phrase Goslled. After Steve’s program Phase One’s own Niels Knudsen presented a program on a variety of topics including finding the sweet spot for your lens, custom color balance, and Capture One power user tips. Peter Cox our Ireland based instructor and Steve have gone above and beyond the call in working with and helping the attendees. Check these photographers out, both are excellent and true gentlemen. Following a wonderful dinner we headed out for a magnificent sunset shoot. The images below and above are examples of what we did. Minard Castle is an old castle and beautiful beach. We enjoyed a wonderful sunset there, followed by the eclipse of the moon. Not a bad night at all. We returned to the hotel by 11:30 and set our alarms for 3:30 AM. We’ll be heading out to Connor Pass for sunrise, followed by a full day of shooting. Check back later for Thursday’s blog entry.
