Fremont Composition Photo Workshop Oct. 1, 2011

Today’s workshop was a lot of fun! Fremont has a lot to offer for the photographer. We took the time and looked around and our eyes open up finding many different scenes to photograph. Fremont has a lot of colorful details which might be easily overlooked.

Here are some photos I took. I also posted some examples using NIK software in the post processing which made a huge difference in the final result. I love to work with NIK and to improve the images; it took me less than one minute.

Image on the right processed with NIK: increased structure and saturation and reduced the brightness of the scaffolding to the left of the trolls head

We started with the troll statue under the Aurora Bridge. At the moment the bridge is being retrofitted so it is not as vulnerable to earthquake damage in the future. Unfortunately for the photographer, construction is visible in the wide views. I showed the students how to make the best out of it and how to avoid all the scaffolding.

If you are interested in participating in any of my workshops, please email me at photos@wkaehlerphoto.com. I am planning on teaching some digital workflow and NIK software workshops in the near future.
