Workshop Requirements

This workshop focuses on In-Camera techniques to create ME ICMs.

Combining exposures in post processing to create an ME ICM effect will NOT be covered in this course.   

Not all camera bodies have the full range of functions taught in this course, so it is important that potential participants know their camera capabilities prior to registering for this class.

Potential participants will be required to complete a pre-registration survey to determine ability to participate fully in this course using In-Camera methods to create ME ICMs and to determine level of experience with ICM in general.

Specifically, your camera needs to have the ability to use Average Blend Mode, Bright Blend Mode, and Dark Blend Mode.  If your camera does not have these specific capabilities, please do not register for this workshop.

You should also have experience working with ICM.  Basic ICM techniques and instruction are not included in this workshop.  This is an advance ICM course.
