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.

Stop Doing HDR like it's 2008!
Read more at [ frb.li/6xr2n ]

Do you remember the days when everybody and their dog did HDR? People would just slap some preset onto their image in their favorite HDR app, finish it off by tweaking it in unbearable ways and then post it online.

Does that sound familiar to you? Well, thankfully, those days are over. Over the last decade, things have changed. The initial HDR hype ebbed away, techniques and apps have matured, and HDR has silently entered mainstream photography as a useful tool...

The future of cameras

Consumer cameras are dead. They've been killed by smartphones. May they rest in peace.

But what does the camera industry need to do to regain the market? +Tony Northrup has got some great things to say on this topic, and I could not agree more.

Check it out!

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?

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.

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.

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. ;)
