The CanAm dekeSessions, a Video Review

Deke McClelland at Niagara Falls

Greetings from sunny (at least for today) but chilly Buffalo, NY. Deke’s here presenting four sessions at the CanAm Photo Expo—the 53rd annual gathering of the Niagara Frontier Regional Camera Club. We’re told that things are going to get pretty crazy later tonight down by the toasty warm indoor pool area.

I’ve ducked in to that pool area twice today when I just couldn’t get the Buffalo chill out of my California bones. But Deke won’t be by the pool tonight. He’s preparing and resting for the (count ‘em) four dekeTastic sessions he’s presenting tomorrow. I know, lucky Niagaran Frontier Photo Folk get to spend all day with Deke, if they wish.

Each session is based on a theme that’s informed by a curated collection of Deke’s Techniques. I thought I’d gather everything here so that the friendly, enthusiastic participants in Deke’s audience tomorrow will have an easy place to go for more information, so that those of you not here enjoying the Niagarian icy sunshine can follow along at home, and (mostly) so that Deke doesn’t have to memorize multiple complex URLs to share at the end of each session tomorrow. (For those of you not here, it’s like a little taste of live Deke without the wind chill factor.)

  • Thanks for Posting These

    I have already used the “Enlarging a low-res photograph.” The results were so much more pleasing than what I tried to do in the past. It was great meeting you at the CanAm Expo.
