I'm now back in Bulgaria after a fantastic week in Seattle running my Dramatic Post-Production workshop for Creative Live. It was a bit stressful at first, but once I'd got over the fact that I was in a studio with six students, with another 6000 watching online, it was a lot of fun. I'm really glad to have had the opportunity to go and would definitely do it over again :)

If you missed it, you can download the videos for all three days here. The usual price for the download is $149.00, but if you're subscribed to our photography and post-production tutorials, or subscribe now, you can get a $50.00 discount (check out the members' page for details). We've had a lot of great feedback, both during the event and after, so it's definitely worth checking out.

In other news, I'm heading off to Istanbul next month with Bobbi Lane, to run our Faces and Places Photo Tour to Istanbul (8-12th November), after which we'll both be in Dubai for the Gulf Photo Plus Fotoweekend event (16-19th November). There are still a few places left on our Istanbul Photo Tour, but quite a few of the FotoWeekend workshops are already fully booked - so sign up now if you're thinking of coming along.

As for this shot: it was taken at Fleetwood during my recent trip to the UK, and as the post-processing was quite interesting I've used it as this week's Mini-PSD: take a look at Curves 5, used to darken down some of the brighter blurred grass in the foreground.

Wow...dramatic work here David. A brooding landscape and subject. On this particular day, it fits. Great work.
