Daniel Cheong – HDR Guru is coming to Kuala Lumpur

12 Nov

What a shame that I missed Nigel Barker’s workshop when he was in Malaysia last year but this year Ariffin Aris Visuals is lucky enough to bring in the HDR Guru – Daniel Cheong all the way from Dubai. Who is Daniel Cheong? Daniel Cheong was born in Mauritius, from Chinese descent, French by nationality. Daniel’s job has taken him around the world (France, US, Japan, Singapore, Dubai). Daniel is a technology enthusiast and passionate photographer. His main subjects are architecture, cityscapes, seascapes, urban decay. Daniel’s techniques that he uses for his shots are – Digital Blending (manual ‘blending’ of multiple bracketed exposures using Photoshop to get the maximum dynamic range), Vertical Panoramas (‘vertorama’) and HDR (using tonemapping software)

A summary of what to expect from Daniel Cheong’s Digital Blending Workshop in Kuala Lumpur. Daniel Cheong is well known for his surreally beautiful photos, using a blend of unique skills and techniques he has perfected in his years in photography. Due to demands from his fans, he is flying in to conduct his exclusive Digital Blending workshop in Singapore. Daniel will conduct a small, personalised, hands-on workshop on Digital Blending, taking you through each and every step to show you how he achieves the beautiful high dynamic range and beautiful sharpness and colours and how you can do so for yours too. Daniel’s techniques that he uses for his shots are – Digital Blending (manual ‘blending’ of multiple bracketed exposures using Photoshop to get the maximum dynamic range), Vertical Panoramas (‘vertorama’) and HDR (using tonemapping software).

The workshop will start off with a pre-shoot , where Daniel will take you through a test shot, which will be used during the workshop where he will take you through, step by step, the Digital Blending techniques , tricks and tips he uses to achieve his beautiful photos.If you have not seen his famous photo of Kuala Lumpur Skyline on Wikipedia and Yahoo, you may check out his work at 500px or Flickr.

To get some of you excited, there will be 2 sessions of Daniel Cheong’s workshop. 1st session will be on the 24th November and the 2nd session will be held on the 25th November in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. Unfortunately the 2nd session is already full within a few days of its announcement but we still have a few seats left for the 1st session on Saturday.
