    Hello!

    The Capture Integration Master's Series: New England Landscapes workshop is right around the corner! We are super busy around the office getting all of the last minute details together, but we wanted to take a moment to reach out to you and give you some information to help make this workshop as great as it can be from your perspective.

    1) Tuesday Sunrise Photo Walk with Jack & Guy:

    For anyone who is planning to arrive in Boston early, Jack Flesher & Guy Mancuso will be leading a sunrise photo walk through the Boston Commons on Tuesday October 4, 2011. This is completely optional and free to attend if you would like to join. They will be leaving from the lobby of the Omni Park House hotel at 6:00am and plan to eat breakfast with Jack & Guy and the crew after the walk.

    2) What to bring:
    Camera Gear
    Camera & Lens
    Tripod & Head
    Cable Release
    Multiple CF Cards
    Batteries & Chargers
    Camera Rain Gear
    Laptop & Mouse
    External Hard Drive
    Memory Card Reader
    Capture One Installed
    Photoshop CS5 Installed
    Clothing
    Suit Jacket (**required** for all meals because we have to walk through the main dining room to get to our private dining room)
    Rain Gear
    Warm Coat
    Hiking Boots
    Thick Socks
    Pack for Resort Causal
    Miscellaneous
    Headlamp (or small flashlight, but a headlamp is strongly recommended)
    Umbrella
    Synthetic Towel
    2-Gallon Zip Lock
    35-Gallon Trash Bag

    3) When to be where:

    October 5, 2011
    Bus leaves at 10:00am (sharp) from:

    Omni Park House Hotel
    60 School Street
    Boston, Massachusetts 02108
    Phone: (617) 227-8600

    October 5-9, 2011
    Workshop location:

    Omni Mount Washington Resort
    310 Mount Washington Hotel Rd
    Bretton Woods, New Hampshire 03575
    Phone: 603-278-1000

    October 9, 2011
    Return to Boston Logan International Airport at 12:30pm.


    4) Required Clothing:

    We are dining in a private dining room for our meals, however, the only path to enter this private dining room is to walk through the main dining room at the resort. This main dining room is the only AAA four diamond restaurant in the state of New Hampshire and it requires all men to wear a suit jacket even if we are only walking through it. So please be aware of this and bring your own jacket. If you happen to forget, the hotel does have a selection of loaner jackets that you may borrow for the meals. The attire is to be considered resort casual for the trip, so please pack appropriately.


    5) What's the weather like:

    The weather in Bretton Woods, NH averages a high of 58 and a low of 37 for the month of October. We will be outside before sunrise and after sunset, so be mindful of the lows. We believe strongly that some of the best shots come during adverse weather, so we will shoot through light and moderate rain, dress appropriately.

    Here is a link to the weather forecast for the area:

    http://www.weather.com/weather/monthly/03575?month=1


    6) Online Capture One Training:

    Spots are still available in the online training meant to serve as a pre-workshop introduction to Capture One. It is entirely optional. Normal attendees must pay $109, but it is offered as a complimentary class to all attendees of the NE workshop. Please call us at 404.522.7662 to reserve your spot.

    You can view the schedule here: http://www.captureintegration.com/20...line-training/


    7) Continue the conversation:

    We have started a thread on the GetDPI.com forum to continue this conversation. Many of our attendees have attended many workshops in the past and we can all benefit from each other's experiences. Please jump on that thread and add your comments and suggestions for getting ready for our workshop!

    Re: New England Workshop Participants Info Thread

    Guy & Jack, are you taking your technical cameras on the Boston Commons sunrise walk or your 645DF or both? What do you suggest for a fellow who may not want to carry both? I suppose it might depend on how far we walk. It has been more than 25 years since I have been in that area, and never with a camera or walking. I am looking forward to it. Charles

    Re: New England Workshop Participants Info Thread

    I am only taking my Cambo on this workshop. CI has 7 complete Cambo systems on hand. I will be shooting mine on Tuesday but the Anniversary model all week. Imay just go home with one too. So Charles Tuesday bring your Tech so Jack and I can help you out. We are more than happy to help folks get these things under there belt. I know you just recently got yours and probably have a lot of questions. Jack is shooting his Arca and me the Cambo so nice balance together.

    Guy, I had hoped you would say that! I will plan to bring my meager two lenses and my Arca. Moreover, I will be glad to receive all the help I can find! Charles

    Well, Guy is bringing his even meager one-lens-kit but I have a hunch that one lens is going to have company on the ride back to Arizona!

    I bet Guy will have more than his "one meager lens" in his bag when he takes that walk on Tuesday morning at the Boston Commons sunrise walk! Charles

    Count on it. LOL

    If you want to see a lens from the Cambo let me know, see if I can get that in hand so we can see images from it.

    Hello Ziv,
    I am arriving at the Boston airport at 3:12 pm on Monday Oct. 3rd...and I think that is a bit late for lunch. I did not want to fight the Atlanta traffic to get an earlier flight. Look forward to meeting you. Charles

    Re: New England Workshop Participants Info Thread

    Interesting to hear that you folks are shooting tech cameras this time on the workshop. I had decided only to bring my DF and a few lenses because normally workshops arent conducive to my shooting speed with my Alpa. If we're all going to be shooting slow then maybe I'll just bring the Alpa instead.

    Re: New England Workshop Participants Info Thread

    The thing is there will be plenty of DF gear on hand. I know 7 Cambos will be on hand and of course Arca not sure about those though . For me I am most likely shooting very little since i will be more involved with you folks so I really don't need a lot of gear. But you folks bring whatever you want we can always leave some gear back at the ranch after your first day and decide what fits you best. We have plenty of time to shoot at whatever pace you want we are not moving constantly but in one location each time we go out and stay at that location until we go back in than switch to new location. So no hit and run per say, although you know me. LOL

    Re: New England Workshop Participants Info Thread

    I'm not a workshop participant, and of course nobody knows what the weather will be two hours from now in northern New England, but I live in west-central New Hampshire, and thought I'd mention this...

    We had frost on a couple nights last week, and I was very happy to not have to think about mosquitoes again until next spring. Wrong! Yesterday I got more bites in one hour than at any other time this summer... because I hadn't slathered-on repellent.

    Re: New England Workshop Participants Info Thread

    I understand another long awaited shipment from Arca Swiss has arrived in time for the workshop! CI and crew are probably too busy to spread this news right now...but I have it on reliable information. Charles

    Re: New England Workshop Participants Info Thread

    I talked to my wife until blue in the face suggesting she should go with me and do her thing (landscape painting); but she said she would have to rent a vehicle and would be going places she is not familiar with by herself etc. etc. Yesterday she had lunch with a painting buddy who just raved about the hotel and the beauty of the place and who kept saying "I can not believe you are not going!" I don't think she will change her mind at the last minute...but next time she will pay more attention! Meanwhile, I believe there is still one opening....so, if you are reading this....you better act fast. Charles

    Not sure how long it'll last but it's just plain nice in Cambridge today!

    Lets see if my jet lag & timezone resistance allows me to join you in the morning :-)
