Jim shares highlights of his recent photography workshop in the Highlands of Scotland with Curtis Budden
). The landscapes in Scotland are absolutely amazing and every photographer should plan to travel to Scotland at least once! Curtis also does photo workshops in other areas and we suggest you check out his website - he will even organize custom tours for you. Jim also created a number of timelapse sequences for the podcast using his own rail in addition to the original Radian
software. Thanks to a great group that helped make this workshop truly outstanding!
Coming up next time, The Fotobug Halloween special with a How-to on spooky night time light painting. Be sure not to miss it!

Jim just returned from Slovenia workshop operated by Luka Esenko. Slovenia is a truly amazing and very photogenic place that Jim recommends you add to your bucket list. In addition, Jim joined a number of truly remarkable and interesting people and photographers from all over the globe. In addition, Tim Mannakee joined the group with two photographers from England. Jim also took time to interview Luka and Tim along with Curtis Budden (who runs workshops in Scotland and Poland), Tony Oberstar (an LA cinematographer), Dan Briski (a native Slovenian photographer), and Bob and Nadine (cousins of Tony who were visiting family in Slovenia).
