Come and photograph the majestic Grand Central terminal -- capture all of the details in the shadows and highlights with HDR photography! We have special permission to use tripods during this five hour workshop.
We will meet at 11:30 am at GCT and then you will be shooting from 12noon until 5pm. Tom and I will be helping you out with compositions, checking exposures, etc. 10 participants and two leaders.
We will also be offering a separate optional pre-workshop workshop designed to get people familiar with the cameras and bracketing for HDR photography. You will be taking 3-10 exposures in order to capture all of the details in the shadows and highlights.
We will also be offering a separate optional post-workshop workshop to demonstrate Photomatix, the most popular HDR processing software. Come to one even or all three.
This was from a recent article -- GCT is turning 100
"Grand Central Terminal, the doyenne of American train stations, is celebrating its 100th birthday. It made its debut in the heyday of cross-country train travel, faced demolition in the era of the auto, and got a new lease on life with a facelift in its eighth decade. Opened on February 2, 1913, when trains were a luxurious means of traveling across America, the iconic New York landmark with its Beaux-Arts facade is an architectural gem, and still one of America's greatest transportation hubs."
"It is also the Big Apple's second-most-popular tourist attraction, after Times Square. "We are among the top 10 most-visited sites in the world," boasted Dan Brucker, manager of Grand Central Tours at Metro-North Railroad, the commuter rail service that operates from Grand Central. "Every day more than 750,000 people come through Grand Central Terminal - that is the entire population of Alaska that walks through here every day. It is the entire population of the state of North Dakota," he noted."
