Introduction
I am a photographer and educator. HDR photography is one of my main interests and and my subjects include architecture and landscapes. The techniques I use also include panorama and vertorama photography. 

Are you into HDR photography? Visit my website farbspiel-photo.com to get free access to my images and various educational resources. These include:

1. The HDR Cookbook - a free primary resource for HDR post-processing techniques
2. Before-and-After Comparisons - see what HDR can do for your images 
3. Making-of videos - watch the whole process of HDR post-processing in my time-lapse making-of videos
4. Pics-to-play-with - test your newly learned skills by downloading full-res source images and processing them

It's all free and waiting for you at farbspiel-photo.com.

I currently use a Nikon D7000 as my main camera. Find more infos on my gear at farbspiel-photo.com/about/gear and join my D7000 Users Group at bit.ly/gas-d7000.

If you don't care about all that stuff, that's perfectly fine. I'd also be happy if you'd just add me to your circles. Take a look at my stream to see if the stuff I am sharing is of interest to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Regards
Klaus Herrmann

Drooling over megapixel monster cameras?
 
Well, they also come with a lot of problems. Here's a good overview of what you may be facing.

I have a hard enough time storing and making multiple backups of images with 1/2 that resolution. Even so, it would sometimes be nice to have the option of a higher resolution. The biggest issue for me would be the lower ISO. I tend to push my ISO more than my resolution limits.

A really cool time-lapse with lots of crazy effects

Making this time-lapse has taken several years. You see buildings grow into the sky and trees bloom.

I am still wondering how they created the cool dashed light trails. Must be some post-processing trick.

Do you have any idea?

Sometimes, I reply in an extremely friendly fashion to such comments, almost as if I did not realize that they want to provoke me... but only if I'm in the mood. ;)

To get the crazy 200-shot-burst-performance of the D500, you'll need a high-end XQD card
 
As +Jason Odell shows in this video, you really need the latest generation of XQD cards with the D500 to shoot 200 RAW images without interruption.
 
If you put in an SD card, you may be disappointed.

Microscopic photography is truly extraordinary
 
Watch how Levon Biss creates 10,000 microscopic photos of single insects and composes them into extremely large and detailed images that can be printed 3 meters high.
 
This is meticulous work that goes beyond just photography. It is educational in a much broader sense as it gives the general public a microscopic view of creatures they wouldn't normally appreciate.
 
Enjoy & Share

Is the Nikon D500 a High-ISO Beast? Check out these Samples!
► Read more at [ frb.li/sq8ti ]

High-ISO performance is big for me in my photography. Therefore, I was watching closely to see if any information leaks about the new D500 beyond the usual marketing talk by Nikon themselves. And sure it did....

#photography #camera #nikon #d500 #iso
Here are the first credible High-ISO samples of the upcoming Nikon D500. They sure look promising.

How to Create an HDR Panorama in Lightroom
► Read more at [ frb.li/lrhdrpano ]

In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to use Lightroom to create one of the most complex types of images. We’re going to make an HDR panorama by merging and stitching 21 photos to get a single 180° image that has sufficient details in the highlights and shadows.

+Darren Neupert If you shoot RAW, the white balance is not that important. You can adjust it in post-production. If you use Lightroom for the merging and stitching, you can even do so after the panorama has been stitched since it's a DNG image.

I am using a minimalistic panorama head assembled from a macro rail and a panorama plate. Both are from different manufacturers and pretty inexpensive.

Glass Photography
 
There's a lot to learn in this video by the good guys at +The Slanted Lens: How to set up a scene with glass and water. How to trigger a splash shot so that it is repeatable. How to light such a scene (trick with translucent materials). How to photograph on a reflective surface... and more.
 
Enjoy!
