Fonthill Castle HDR Workshop: From Capture to Output

Posted in Instructional Photo Tours with tags on May 30, 2011 by roamin with roman

Hi All,

I am pleased to announce my first Fonthill Castle Museum HDR workshop: From Capture to Output. It is located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  The date is July 24th and the cost is $350. This workshop is being co-led by Susan Candelario and is limited to 9 participants.  We have been trying to get into the castle for quite a while now.  Photography is generally not permitted inside or outside on the grounds without special permission. Last year, they only gave us permission to photograph outside or hand held in very few areas. After months of negotiations, we have just received special permission to go inside with our tripods before the public is allowed in!  It will begin promptly at 8am to photograph the exterior of the castle and then we will move indoors for a few hours.  After a break for lunch, we will go over some processing programs to help you maximize the quality of your images.  A laptop and HDR software is highly recommended!  Feel free to e-mail me at for any additional information.

Sorry all……this one is sold out so hope I can get another date!


1/2 Day Gillete Castle HDR Workshop

   I am pleased to announce a ½ day Gillette Castle HDR workshop. Gillette Castle is located in East Haddam, CT and is a photographer’s true HDR heaven indoors and out. The 24 room medieval style mansion built in 1919 by William Gillette has over 47 wooden fortress- like doors within the structure and no two are alike. The woodwork within the castle is hand-hewn southern white oak.  The walls are covered with hand-woven squares of Prairie and Japanese grasses and there are many colorful light fixtures made of crushed and stained glass.


     Join me and co-leader Susan Candelario at the castle for this exclusive, private tour of the castle from 3:30pm – 7:30pm on either July 9th or September 17th.  The cost for either date is $100 and includes the private entry fee. A tripod is required.  The workshop is open to 12 participants.  Lodging is not included in the price!
