Losser Wednesday & Friday

I won’t have any post the rest of the week as I am working on a project that is going to take up a lot of my time. In the next week or two I will give you more on some exciting news, so stay tuned! Here is one of the images I have been working on.

New Video Monday

Blending Tw0 Photos

In this video we are going to blend two images together to create one image with a good sky using the Layer Mask, Gradient Tool, Bush and a Curve Layer.

I want to share with you a great place to photograph especially if you doing HDR. It’s in the northern panhandle of Florida a place called Apalachicola. About a month ago I was going up to photograph a couple of military bases and on the way took about an hour the photograph in the city, and wish I would’ve had more time. There were a lot of great opportunities to photograph both the buildings and nature along the coast. I wish I would’ve had more time to explore and really get the feel for this area, but we are on a tight time schedule. Here are a few of the images that had a chance to work on.
