I went to the Libre Graphics Meeting 2014 in Leipzig to get either a boost for my motivation or to find an end for this project. It turned out to be a booster.
It was a really good time – even with missing the first day and the (for me) most interesting talks because I had to work that day. Another day was spent at the Zoo with Pat David and his wife, more time in the coffee room, Milchbars and restaurants. All the time having good conversations and learning a lot.
And then I got the honors of shooting the traditional group image. I assume it was not my track record of famous group pictures but the 36 megapixel resolution of my D800 that led to that decision.
In this episode I cover the post processing of the image and how I blended my previously taken image into the group.
