Too Much Fun with RC at the Temple

Yesterday, I took my friend, RC (a.k.a. Rafael Conception from the Kelby Media Group), to one of my favorite shooting spots – the largest Buddhist temple in the US. The temple is part of the Chuang Yen Monastery. Believe it or not, it's only about 1.5 hours from NYC.

RC is in town for the Photoshop Summit, which will be totally cool!

The temple, in Kent, NY, is one of the favorite shooting locations on my Hudson River Photography Workshops.

RC was shooting HDR. His shot is on the left. The shot I took of him shooting is on the right. This dude does not mind getting down and dirty for a shot.

Below (left) is an HDR image I created from a series of pictures that I took on previous visit to the temple. On the right is the average exposure of the same scene.

I hope to see RC again up here! And I hope you can join the photo fun on one of my workshops.

P.S. More on HDR all this week at the Digital Photo Experience.

Next week I'll be posting pictures/tips as often as possible from my Southwest Caravan Workshop over at the Digital Photo Experience.

Our team of 12 will be shooting in and around Arches, Bryce and Zion - straights shots and HDR. If you happen to be there and spot us, please stop by and say hi!

We have all our permits* – which are necessary these days – from the Park Services. If you plan to run a workshop in a National Park, my advice is to get the permit. If you plan to join a workshop, ask the instructor if he/she has a permit.

Explore the light - and see you over at DPE!

* To get a permit, you need insurance. Plus, someone in your group needs to know CPR.
