The Silky Fountain – and a new video – Walkin’ around with Trey!

My friend Scott has posted a new video on my HDR Photography that features me walking around Olympic Park in Atlanta taking photos. It’s up on his blog, so follow that link over to take a look! He’s just starting to learn more and more about photography, and he asked if he could follow me for a while with a video camera. I told him that would be perfectly fine. He was nice enough to edit it together into a nice little 8-minute piece there. I hope you enjoy it.

There is a longer “uncut” version of the video that goes on for 45 minutes. I’ll include a secret link to that just to Newsletter subscribers. The next newsletter should come out in the next few days… so get ready! (It’s Free!) (and even better, I promise not to Spam you… I have no Nigerian opportunities to extend to you)

There is one part of the longer video where I set up to take a shot of the Coke Museum. Scott didn’t get the security guard walking up to us… but at least you can see a bit of the situation on the ground and what a threat we were posing! (full article on Nearly Getting Arrested in Downtown Atlanta here)

This photo below is one of the many I took that evening with Scott and Rick. I described the best way to get these silky strands on the waterfall… everyone likes those, right?

  • Nice photo, Trey. I had to go to flickr to see it, but that’s ok as I saw it in a larger size. Looking forward to the newsletter!! Now to watch the little video ;-).

    Tantalized and waiting for the long version.
    When will he new textures and tutorial be ready?

  • Ronald V.

    Hey Trey,

    I really like your photos! It is amazing how beautiful these pictures can be. I started making photos not so long ago and I am really going to try to make those pictures. I have a camera which can do the 3 shots, so it’s worth to try it.

    I will really use your tutorial for it πŸ™‚

    Hey Trey,

    Next time you’re in ATL I want to come tag along and watch you work πŸ˜‰
    Excellent work man!

  • well shot Trey, love the shooting into the sun you’re doing. a big reason I love HDR

  • casusan

    Wow! Beautiful shot Trey – super video too – can’t wait to get the newsletter to see the longer version!

  • Bonjour,
    Nice framing..Beautiful post-processing..Bravo!

  • Mike Diblicek

    Hi trey,

    Great image, top man you are.

    Love the vid, and as with the others, looking forward to the newsletter.

    All the best


  • Great short video! It’s one thing to look at your photos and try to make ones like them, but something totally different to hear your thoughts around your photo process. I got a lot out of just that short video – can’t wait for the 45 min version!

    Oh, and another awesome photo! πŸ™‚

  • Nice little video. Scott did a nice job. The long version should be pretty cool. The little bit about composing your shot — That’s where its at. We beginners want the look. How do you do it? But where its really at is to learn to see like Edward Hopper and use color like Renoir. Oh yeah, learn to use Photomatix and Photoshop too. Then we can really make those pixels dance!
    Thanks for giving us some insight.

  • Thanks all! Well – you know… that 8-min video was pretty fast-paced. The longer one will be a little more leisurely… hope that’s okay!

    Cindy – It should be ready in the next week or so – ish? I dunno… been super busy lately and only been getting to it late at night. Also getting clean versions of all the textures ready – now there are 150.

    Hello Trey.. love your work.. off to check out the video.. and can hardly wait for the newsletter. Thanks for the heads up!!!!!

  • Great shot Trey. One question, did you get model releases from the individuals you photographed? Or do you not plan on selling them?

  • Paul Garrett

    Since most all my photography is done while doing high altitude hiking in Switzerland where I live, a tripod adds too much weight and is difficult to set up on rocky mountain slopes. Consequently, I use Photomatix Pro with a single exposure RAW image to create a pseudo HDR and tweak it with Topaz Adjust. How much HDR quality am I losing with a single RAW image?
