I’ll be teaching a 2 hour Digital Blending and Post-processing workshop in Sydney, Australia on
Sunday, February 10th, 2013 from 2:30-4:30 pm (check-in starts at 2 pm)
at the Maiden Theatre located in the Royal Botanic Gardens.

I’ll be sharing my complete digital workflow from start to finish, focusing on manual blending techniques, such as my Advanced Dynamic Blending technique and how to maintain complete control over your images. From color correction to complex masking, if you’re curious how I craft my photography, this is your chance to find out.
