Just watched the Grid and looked up your photos. Wow. Please don't doubt yourself for a moment! Your work is stunning and just gets better and better. I look forward to seeing what you do next!
I considered myself primarily a landscape photographer until I was introduced to studio lighting and portraiture at Photoshop World 2010. Westcott had a ‘Shoot Out’ booth on the Expo floor with professional lighting, sets and models. I was instantly hooked and spent hours at the booth taking hundreds of photographs.

I lived in LA once. Sometimes I miss it, until I have to get somewhere by way of the 405. :) We will be making that trek much more often now that our son has also become a UCLA Bruin.

This video, which I did just for the folks who follow me here on Google+, I call "Down & Dirty HDR" and it shows the quick step-by-step technique I use to process my HDR images, and in particular how I processed the HDR shot I posted last week here on Google+ of the lobby bar in hotel I was staying at in Cologne, Germany. This isn't a "deep dive" into HDR---it's just...well..Down & Dirty. Hope you find it helpful if you're new to HDR.

Thanks, I like HDR, in the film days I learned from Ansel Adams and Bruce Barnbaum the craft/art of contrast controlling development, pre-exposure and printing.

Well I guess this is what painters do to interpret high contrast.

Giving Keys. Give one to a friend who needs it, help homeless kids. Lovely idea. http://www.thegivingkeys.com/

I think I'm going all Amish for a few days. No Google+, no Twitter. Turning off the computer, the smartphone. No Tivo. No Netflix. No email. Who's with me?
