Late Evening Color In The Sky

When I am out photographing sunsets I always stay until after the sun sets. You can get some amazing colors if you do wait. This HDR image was photographed along the inter coastal shoreline near Juana's Pagodas and Sailors' Grill located off the Navarre Beach Causeway near Navarre Beach, Florida. The 5 exposure image was photographed with the Sony A7R using the Sony 10-18mm f/4 lens. Post processing was done with Lightroom 5.4, Photomatix Pro 5 and finished off with using OnOne Perfect Effects Pro 8.

Late Evening Setting Sun

Did a similar sunset shot on the same evening, however just by moving your location a little, you get a whole different prospective. This late evening HDR setting sun was photographed just North of the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center in Atlanta, Georgia where PSW was held last week. 

The 7 exposure HDR image was shot with the Sony A7R using the Sony 10-18mm f/4 lens. Post processing was done with Lightroom 5.4, Photomatix Pro 5, and finished off with using OnOne Perfect Effects Pro 8.

Want to learn how to use the new Adobe Lightroom Mobile? Then you may like to check out the FREE videos by +Matt Kloskowski of #kelbyone . Just to add I am finding out this is very cool the way it works. After setting it up on both the Macbook Pro Retina and iPad I did some editing via iPad . Without doing anything the changes show up on the Macbook Pro. Very cool!

Photography is more than a profession for me. It's a passion, the way I try to capture and celebrate life with photographs.
Introduction

I have now been a freelance photographer since leaving the military. It was during my tour of duty in the military that I first found an interest in photography. The first paid assignment was a wedding of a friend and I have never looked back.

Today I no longer do wedding photography, but put more focus toward my scenic and commercial work. Along the way I worked as a post photographer for Redstone Arsenal (Huntsville, Alabama) for two years. Until 1988 I was a self taught photographer learning from reading and trying things until I was able to get it right. That year I dropped everything and used my GI Bill and went back to school to pursue a degree in Photo and Film Communications.

In 1992 after having a successful photo career in Huntsville, Alabama I packed everything up and move to Gulf Breeze, Florida.  Not really knowing anyone in the area this was a big move for me. However the timing was right.  I was looking for a change in my life and photography work. 

In 1998 I started my move to digital photography from film. Starting the end of 2002 I did complete move to digital photo. Currently I am using the Canon 5DM3, Sony Nex-7 and Sony A7R. 

Today I still continue as a freelance photographer covering national sailing races, scenic photos and commercial work in this area and around the world. Some of my work has been featured in Sailing World Magazine and other publications across the country.
