Phase One Digital Artist Series (PODAS) Workshop
Focuses on Fashion and Portrait Photography

The Ultimate Model Shoot Will Be Held at Elegant UK Manor House

COPENHAGEN, July 21, 2011 — Today, Phase One announced that its first PODAS fashion and portrait photography workshop will be held at the luxurious manor house, Weston Park, UK during September, 2011. This is a truly unique event. Only PODAS workshops offer participants the full use of a Phase One IQ series camera for the duration of the course.

PODAS workshops are known for their world-class instructors and uniquely all-inclusive venue, including in this case airport pickup, accommodations, elegant meals, the latest Phase One IQ camera equipment and inspiring models on location. A PODAS workshop is designed to free participants so they can focus solely on the art and craft of their photography.

Fashion and Portrait Photography
3-day intensive workshop
September 10-14, 2011 - Weston Park, UK
Instructors: Drew Gardner and Natalie Dybisz “Miss Aniela”
Limited to 16 participants
For more details, including schedule and details on how to register, please see:

Each workshop participant will receive a Phase One 60-megapixel IQ160 camera system (comprising a Phase One 645DF camera body, IQ160 back and lenses) to use throughout the workshop. Attendees will also receive a free copy of both Capture One Pro and Media Pro software. Shooting sessions will be complemented by classroom instruction on topics ranging from visualization to composition, capture, workflow and presentation.

“I have taught at workshops all over the world,” said Drew Gardner, “but this one will be special. We’ll be working with models in a beautiful setting where we will have so much freedom to explore new settings and new approaches. I will be sharing my techniques with participants to give them the tools that will help them make their picture special long after the workshop has ended.”

Miss Aniela said, "I will be showing my entire process from shooting to RAW workflow and retouching, which can be anything from simple adjustments to intricate compositing. I’ll be applying post-production techniques to create surreal and arresting imagery as seen in my self-portraiture, but also showing the importance of the thinking process behind it.”

And Kevin Raber, host of the PODAS workshop series and vice president of Phase One USA said, “I am thrilled to be organizing this workshop at such a spectacular location and with such talented instructors.”

Previous PODAS workshops have generally focused on landscape photography instruction and have been held in locations such as Australia, Death Valley, Iceland and Ireland. Future workshops are now being designed and will be announced.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
