I rocked the Path Blur on this photo for the cannons and the propeller. It is a powerful tool when used selectively.

If you want to see how I did it, here is the Free Tutorial this Friday:

I have recently become a Master in the Arcanum and have started building my "Cohort"...

If you read that last sentence and are lost, I understand! I once thought it was photography as a second language as well.

The Arcanum is a place where you can hone your inner artist, discover your passion, and understand your "Why"!

If you want to learn more, check out the post today on the blog!

Perfect Suite 9.5 is releasing very soon (within the next 2 weeks or so).

I was fortunate enough to receive a beat version and took a look at the new Perfect Effects 9.5.  The Luminosity Masking is a very useful addition!

"HDR does not kill photography, photographers kill photography!"

Oh boy!  Bigger sensors, more dynamic range... what else will threaten the life of HDR photography?

I wrote about this today on EverydayHDR because it has been bugging me for a long time, I just didn't know how to put it in words.  

Basically, Tone Mapping is a form of HDR but is not the end all be all of HDR.  Many people are drinking the HDR Kool-Aid that don't even know it and this article may show you how!
