Orchid Macro
Taken with the Sony A7r, and the Canon 100mm macro lens.

I'm back!
I've been super busy this last month helping my wife and her friend set up their Organic Skincare Spa in Beverly Hills. You can see the website at http://sakurabeauty.net which I'm still working on. 

I've been taking lots of macro photos of flowers to help with advertising and content. It should be fun. Expect my posts to get pretty girly for the next few weeks as I work on that. :)

Then it's back to landscapes. Weather's been clear so shooting around L.A. has been boring.

Malibu Gold
From last week in Malibu California during a rare extreme high tide. Needless to say, I got a little soaked. 

Also, if you saw my article from yesterday. I shot this at f13. Usually I like to shoot f16, but I found diffraction to be a problem on these new cameras with high pixel density. Like my Sony A7r.

I was worried about the lower DOF at a lower aperture, but in the final, it's unnoticeable.

A Better Way To Create Luminosity Masks
A technique I've sort of developed over the years that is a little bit easier than the old school methods.

No problem, you can do it with curves too. The reason I like it is because it works in a one click action.

That Japan Sun
On second to last day in Japan the sun decided to finally be my best friend and give me this awesome sunset. 

It was one of the best sunsets I've ever photographed. It was very bright orange. This actually isn't too far off from my original raw.

I also redesigned my website this week. Check it out: http://goo.gl/8ifo7H
Too much noodling css code. I have a headache now.

Why You Should Avoid Shooting With Small Apertures

Typically as photographers we are taught, the smaller the aperture the sharper and more crisp your image is going to be.

If you're always shooting high apertures for your landscape photos, you should really consider dialing back and learning your lenses. Especially if you're shooting on a camera with a high pixel density sensor like the Sony A7r, or many of the new APS-C systems.
Check out these tests! Then Share. :)

Good Promises
Photo from El Matador Beach Los Angeles.
It's amazing how popular El Matador has become with photographers in the last few years. I went there a few years ago and it was dead.
The other day it was like a Photographer fiesta. 

See how you can sharpen your photos like this with the High Pass Filter In Photoshop. I share my techniques here: http://bit.ly/SkiP1n
