We are still in the midst of a major migration, so stay tuned… more news to come! 🙂

New Video

While I was on the North Island of New Zealand, I was invited by the very kind Ian Brodie (links to his photography website) to visit Hobbiton! He is also an avid HDR Photographer, and extended a wonderful invitation to my family and I to visit The Shire. It’s located on a farm nearby the town of Matamata.

Ian works with Hobbiton Tours, which you should also look up if you want to have a visit yourself!

  • Nice vid Trey, thanks for sharing. Love the random 3’s company song at the end!

  • Very, very cool! How neat to visit there and you got a great shot too.

  • What time of the day did you take this? On the video looks like its pretty bright. I’m interested on whether an HDR can work outside of the “golden hour”… I would assume there wouldn’t be the tonal range in the middle of the day. Whatever – its a great shot!

  • Daniel Haslwanter

    Really nice work again! It would be very interesting to see how you exactly edited the hdr image after the tonemapping in photoshop!

  • Awesome work, HDR makes every detail shows

  • Really really really nice. No wind?

    Looking at the shot I imagine the HDR and adding a few raw layers. Curious on the amount of time you needed on editing it up?? It looks amazing and if you only needed a few mins, i’d really need to hear more. Maybe I’m not thinking simply enough

  • Thanks! No wind this day… it was lucky!
