The Phase One team and instructors arrived in the Dolomites today. We did a brief location scouting trip. This image is the postcard definition of the Dolomites. Watch here regularly during the next week as we share the workshop experience here on the PODAS Blog.
The recent Kimberley PODAS workshop was an incredible experience. The Crew of the True North and the group of photographers on the trip were the absolute best. As you can see by this image we are having a great time.
On the PODAS Kimberley a group of the Phase One support team as well as some attendees spent a night off the boat doing Heli-Camping. The main goal was to do some star trails and long exposures with the Phase One Achromatic Back . Here is a shot made by Niels Knudsen of Phase One and it shows the Milky Way and was converted to B&W. Great image showing off the ability of the IQ260 to do long exposures.
The Kimberley PODAS was one of the more unique workshops PODAS has done to date. Actually based on what we know it was the first cruise based workshop into the Kimberley region ever. Read what Mark Stothard says about his experience by CLICKING HERE.
The Kimberley PODAS as you could see from previous posts was a lot of fun and an amazing journey. Art Wolfe one of our instructors made a post on his blog with images. View it BY CLICKING HERE
So what did you do this morning? On this PODAS workshop during the morning of June 4th we woke up for a sunrise shoot as the True North cruised the Prince Regent River. We had coffee then Eggs Benedict on the bow of the ship. Then we turned a corner and saw this amazing waterfall the King Cascade. The Captain then drove the boat into the falls and anyone that wanted to and there were a number of hearty souls were able to take a falls shower. Of course we had the Phase One cameras and waterproof housing as well as a lot of people taking photos of us. It was a blast. Then we got into the tenders and some people climbed to the top of the waterfalls and others went ashore to shoot the a distance and some of us went crocodile hunting (photography wise). That was followed by morning tea with tasty scones. Then some went on the helicopter to shoot rock art, and some went fishing. And, all of this was before lunch. What an incredible trip so far. What amazing images all of us are getting. Lots of fun. And now it is lunch time.
The Tuscany PODAS workshop has been running for two days now. We have an excellent group of attendees from all over the world and two fantastic Instructors. We kicked off day one after picking everyone up from the Rome airport Upon arriving at the hotel after the drive from Rome we did introductions and handed out Phase One camera systems to everyone. Monday and Tuesday we were up and out the door by 5:45 AM for sunrise images. This is followed by a breakfast and programs at mid morning until lunch. So far Kevin Raber has presented Capture One and 2 workflows and Art Wolfe gave a very inspiring talk on seeing differently. In the afternoon we go out to various locations and stay out sunset. Since Art’s program everyone was using their new found inspiration to see differently and take shots different. Of course we had a nice dinner each evening accompanied by great local wine. The workshops goes until Sunday so check back for more.
