Workshop + Photowalk – 10th Feb
If you like HDR then you will Like Elia Locardi’s work. He runs a travel blog over at blamethemonkey.com and has some stunning images. Elia is running a digital blending workshop here in Sydney on the 10th Feb and then hosting a photowalk from the Opera House Steps at 5:30pm. The workshop has a fee of $60 but the photowalk is free to attend.
I have registered for his Digital Blending workshop, in 2 hours I am sure I will pick up a trick or two! If you’re interested in learning more about using photoshop this is a good value workshop – Elia has more info on his website HERE, I will also be attending the photowalk afterwards… To check out more info and register for his Photowalk CLICK HERE (you will need to be on Google Plus to register)

Is this the HDR software for you?
Let me start by saying that if you own a Windows PC then it isn’t for you… for no other reason than this is a Mac only app, and according to worldwide sales only 10.8% of you are mac users… so for one in ten of you, read on…
As a writer for HDR one, I was asked by the editor to do a review on Hydra Pro 3.1, his reason for giving it to me to do… he is one of the 89.2% that don’t own a Mac! I haven’t done many software reviews so this was going to be fun. I loaded the app onto my iMac and straight away I had some challenges… There were some things that Hydra Pro does REALLY well, and some other things it struggled with… time for me to redirect you to the FULL review with screen captures and a quick summary at the bottom for all of you that can’t be bothered reading the full review… Here is the full review on the HDR One Magazine Site.
Today’s iCandy – Fan Fair
When I was in China I visited many of the parks, and in the mornings, a lot of these parks let the locals in for free to do there daily excersize and the likes. They played all sorts of games and would dance to Chinese music. It was nice to see that they did this every day!

I am starting to like it!
I find it hard to stay up to date on all the social media tools, and I am very active on Facebook and google+, recently I have also been posting a daily photo on Instagram and now I am working on mastering Pinterest! I like the way Pinterest works and have started several boards… rather than my posts (or pins) slowly going missing on some long and selective timeline, each board is easy to look through, to me it is like compiling some sort of album I can go back and look through from time to time. Anyway, you can find me over there with this link http://pinterest.com/benfewtrell/ – I hope to see you there!

today’s iCandy – Beijing Harley
There are a lot of scooters, mopeds and motorbikes in Beijing. To me this guy just looked like a dude as he rode past on this cool looking scooter.
