We'll kick off around 8am with highly focused sessions where we dive deep into focused techniques as well as photo walk-throughs.
Nick and Greg will be alternating leading focused segments honing in on particular techniques with landscape and cityscape images. We will cover topics such as exposure blending, shutter speed stacking, focal length blending, dodging and burning, etc to help fully develop your workflow. Each session will allow time for Q&A.
There will be opportunities for 1:1 or small group coaching and critique outside the main session to help deal with more specific questions.

We'll start back up around 8am and continue with a similar presentation style/Q&A from Saturday.
Our official schedule ends at 4:30pm to allow for flights home.
** Note our schedule is timed such that you can shoot sunrise and sunset in Seattle on your own or with other attendees on both Saturday and Sunday.
Who is this For?
Landscape and cityscape photographers at an intermediate skill level with Photoshop who are looking to take their post-processing to the next level. We welcome ALL levels of photography experience, but recommend that you have some basic familiarity with layers and layer masks in Photoshop to make the most of the workshop. Instruction will include Lightroom / Camera RAW, Photoshop, Lumenzia, Nik, and potentially some other related software packages. Lumenzia is not required for the workflows we will be teaching, but some panel or actions to be able to create luminosity masks/selections is recommended. If you do not have such a tool, you may wish to use Greg's free luminosity masking panel/actions.
How many people is this limited to?
Attendance is limited to 50 participants.
Where is the workshop located?
The workshop will be held entirely at the Marriott Seattle Airport.
Where should I stay?
Rooms are available at the Seattle Marriott Airport (3201 S 176th St, Seattle, WA), as well as numerous hotels nearby.

What if I want to share a room?

I'm driving, where can I park?
