ADVANCED B&W POST PROCESSING TECHNIQUES AND 3 WEEKS OF ONLINE PORTFOLIO REVIEWS POST-COURSE WITH Joel Tjintjelaar’s B&W MASTERCLASS:
Joel will reveal in detail and step by step how he creates award winning B&W photographs using software like Photoshop and Silver Efex Pro2. An important part of Joel’s instructional B&W post processing sessions will be on the processing of architectural photographs. A part that doesn’t end with the NYC workshop on November 13 but will be extended online for 3 weeks post-workshop with reviewing and online support (including online video sharing) on image post-processing. To give an impression of what is being taught during these PP sessions take a look at the brilliant work of one of Joel’s first and still, up to now, only student who attended the pilot version of this B&W architectural PP workshop (since this is a brand new instructional session!): Julia Anna Gospodarou went from being a good and talented photographer to being one of the world’s most exciting upcoming B&W architectural photographers after following Joel’s B&W architectural masterclass. Take a look at the compilation of her photos below or if you want to know more about her fantastic work take a look at Julia’s portfolio on Google+ or at her portfolio on 500px.com
So if you want to achieve this level of B&W perfection in architectural photographs yourself, then you should definitely be there in NYC on November 10-11-12-13 2012!

LEARN HOW TO USE YOUR DSLR TO CAPTURE MOTION PICTURES WITH CINEMATOGRAPHER Armand Dijcks :
Cinematographer/photographer Armand Dijcks will introduce you to the world of DSLR cinematography. Your DSLR camera is capable of capturing very high quality video images, but there are so many new things to learn when creating moving images that it may seem daunting. Armand will explain the key concepts, building on the things you already know as a photographer, so that you can expand your creativity using this new medium.
To see more of Armand’s cinematographic work, visit his website here liquidearth.tv or look here HDtravelmag . A photographic experience never to forget; this event will be recorded by Armand Dijcks on video in documentary / fine art style and provided to the students free of charge.
WHAT YOU NEED
1. Any DSLR with a bulb mode setting will do. If you have an analog SLR that will do fine too but a DSLR is recommended so you can have instant feedback during the workshops.
2. A remote cable release or remote control
3. A wide angle lens: 17 mm (cropped and un-cropped sensor) will do just fine. If you have a cropped sensor then wider is even better but not a must. A zoom lens like 17-40 mm gives you more flexibility and is recommendable. If you have a lens with a longer range up to 100 mm or more then this would be ideal for the more abstract architectural shots.
4. A good and sturdy tripod. preferably with a bag that will keep you hands free
5. A 10 stops ND filter is minimally required but it is recommended to add a 3 and/or 6 stops ND filter to that to make it 16 stops in total.
6. NO need to bring a laptop, if you have images you would us to review please bring them on a memory stick. The hands on post processing part is part of the post-course online support.
7. Comfortable Shoes for plenty of walking and warm comfortable clothiers since NY can get chilly during November evenings

As a general rule, make sure your hotel/hostel of choice is in Manhattan, preferably in Midtown (including the theatre district, SoHo, NoHo, Tribeca, Union Square, even Downtown or Chinatown). If you pick an accommodation in the Upper East or West sides, try to pick it as close to Midtown as possible, to avoid long subway rides).

If you would like to share a room with another participant, send Daniel Portal an email to be put in touch with participants that would like that as well.
