I am telling you again, there is no one named Dori here!

This was taken with my #nexus4  at Monterrey Bay Aquarium. I gave my Fuji XE-2 to +Varina Patel and had a blast using my #smartphone  camera to take the shots. 

Enjoy & Share.

Photo Manipulation: Whats the first thing that pops into your head?
Photoshop? Post Processing? RAW Files?

But the truth is that you don't need any of these to manipulate your photos. It have been done way before digital photography was ever invented and those methods can still be used to effectively manipulate your photos....right in the camera itself. Here is an article that show how. 

So next time someone asks are your photos manipulated.....Feel free to answer absolutely.

Film photographer used darkroom and today we use Photoshop to manipulate photos. But there are ways to manipulate photos in camera.

Nothing wrong with manipulation.
If you shoot manual, you can program your camera to make the scenery look like anything.
I don't use/have editing software, I use the RAW conversion in the camera. I still have image adjustment settings. I mostly just correct noise, boost saturation/tone and a bit of underexposure. That's if I even need to.

What can you shoot at Sunset?

Perhaps the question should be do you need to master HDR or Manual Blending skills to be get anything more than silhouettes at sunset? The answer is NO...there are plenty of things you can do to come away with a decent shot at sunset. Here are few ways to shoot sunsets.

Red Dawn, Anna Bay, Australia
BEST VIEWED LARGE

I took this shot while +Varina Patel was recording one of the case study for our Landscape Photography Course (less than 50 yards from here). The humidity in the sky has muted the intensity of the sun and shifted the colors towards RED. 

How was this photo created?
This is a manually blended image created using our iHDR workflow from three separate exposures.  I could have used a GND filter to capture this image, but instead I decided to bracket. I also used a longer focal length to fill this sky with the colors because the most intense colors were confined to the lower part of the horizon. 

Enjoy & Share.

Spring At Last!!, Iceland
BEST VIEWED LARGE

We measure fields of flowers in sq. yards, but when you are in Iceland you measure fields of flowers in sq. miles. And when we arrived in Iceland last year the flowers were at their peak. With Snaefell Glacier in the background this location was just perfectly lit at 4 AM in the morning. ;)

How was this image created?
The composition was selected to use the Church in Ingjaldshólskirkja was located in perfect spot to be photographed. The terrain was such that the lupines could be used to fill the lower half of the frame. For this to occur we had to stand at the top of a small hill along the road. The final image was created by manually blending 3 different photos using our iHDR manual blending workflow. 

Enjoy & Share.
