This last weekend was the 2nd Annual Colorado Photography Festival. Saturday was the Symposium Day that had really interesting speakers and presentations. On Sunday, several workshops were held. I had signed up for the HDR Workshop run by Mark S Johnson. After a short classroom session at Auraria Campus, we headed for the Tivoli Center where we made our images. Later in the afternoon, we practiced HDR post-processing on some standard set of images.
The Tivoli Center is currently the home of the Students Union on Auraria Campus. This is historic building in the Denver metro area. In a past life this was the home of the Tivoli Brewery Company. Many artifacts and machinery from the past life as a brewery have been incorporated into the current building. The student lounge includes the steam-powered generator.
Here is another view of the same room.
Adjacent to the lounge is the boiler room and steam-powered machinery that is no longer in use.
We headed down to the basement where Sigi’s Cabaret is located. The bar was closed and empty of all liquid refreshments!
Here is different view of the same bar counter.
Finally we headed up to the Adirondacks Room. This is located adjacent to the beautiful copper kettles that were used in the brewing process.
The Tivoli Center is a great venue for making images of cool historic artifacts as well as capturing textures of the floors and walls in the building. The workshop was a great help for capture and post-processing of HDR images. Thank you Mark for a great workshop.
