Episode 1 for Free
No, not episode 1 of Star Wars. This one is better! Hehe… Anyway, here is the full episode 1, and you can pop over to the Art of Photography page if you want to see the rest!
HDR Stuff in Episode 4
The tutorial above only has a tiny amount of HDR at the end. The tool I use in there is Photomatix, just like the tool I used to make the sunset photo below.
Daily Photo – Sunset over Island
I don’t make a lot of these vertical, portrait-mode sunsets. I don’t know why! Whenever I do make one in this orientation, I’m often quite happy with it… and I say to myself, “I should do this more often!” But then I come back after a hardcore sunset session, and I realize 90% of my shots are in landscape mode.
My wife likes these orientations better too. She prefers these to be kind we hang in the house… Maybe this is just because she’s heavily into Pinterest!
