HDR Image Processing With Lightroom CC
New video tutorial with PDF companion notes

If you have the new Lightroom CC, I now have a complete tutorial video on how to work with the new HDR Merge function to create realistic HDR tone-maps. I also demonstrate how you can work with HDR files created in Lightroom in other software to create a more stylized look.

This video tutorial is available now from uminescence of Nature Press.

Florida Birding Safari Report

I just completed my 2015 Florida birding safari with some great clients. We had some amazing photo opportunities all along the Florida Space Coast, including Viera, Merritt Island, and St. Augustine.

I hope to see you on a future tour; my Texas Birding Safari has limited openings for an all-inclusive photo tour from private blinds.
Great egret in flight, St. Augustine, FL. Captured with a Nikon D810 and 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 AFS G VRII lens, hand-held. I'm winding up a successful photo safari in Florida. This year, we covered three main locations: Viera Wetlands, Merritt Island NWR, and the St. Augustine Alligator Farm.

Review: Metabones "Speed Booster" Nikon F to Fuji X-mount adapter

This adapter claims to boost your shutter speed by a full stop when using FX Nikon lenses on a Fuji X-mount camera while offering nearly the same angle of view as the lens would on a full-frame body.

Read my review and watch the video here.
If you are transitioning to a Fuji X-mount camera system, there may be times when you want to use your existing glass. For this, you need to get a lens mount adapter. While a lens mount adapter lets you use your Nikon (or Canon) lenses with the Fuji X-mount bodies, there are some major ...

Educating photographers, one pixel at a time
Introduction
Jason P. Odell is a professional photographer, author, and educator in Colorado, USA.

Jason became interested in photography when he received his first camera, a Kodak Ektralite 10, in elementary school. He routinely experimented in his mother's home darkroom and was occasionally allowed to borrow her Nikkormat EL SLR. Jason continued his passion for photography throughout high school, where he was a photographer and editor of the school yearbook.

Jason studied biology at UCLA and later earned his doctorate from the University of California, Riverside. While studying, his field biology work took him to the island of Trinidad, West Indies, where he developed a passion for photographing birds and other wildlife. Jason's doctoral adviser was also an avid nature photographer, so trips to the field always involved packing cameras and lenses.Jason taught at the university level for eight years and has a passion for education.

Jason is the author of numerous eBooks on digital photography and post-processing, available at Luminescence of Nature Press.
