BigScreen - Simple library to manage fullscreen APIs.

Example:
document.getElementById('button').addEventListener('click', function() {
if (BigScreen.enabled) {
BigScreen.toggle();
}
else {
// fallback for browsers that don't support full screen
}
}, false);

Tiny HDR-Tutorial - make stunning pictures with free software!

I was asked many times by circlies: "Peter, how do you do these amazing blog buster pictures?" - Well this is a very small tutorial to show that you don't need expensive software to create these stunning images.

What you need:
- Free Software "Luminance HDR"
- Free Software "Gimp 2.8"
- A camera (uhm? really? wtf?) that can handle "bracketing"
- A tripod (you'll better have a tripod or you'll spend a lot of time to correct alignments of each picture
- remote trigger or interval exposure function (don't touch the cam while pictures are taken!)
- training (yep, nothing comes from nothing, you'll have to try and try and try...)

1.)
Find your scene, install the tripod, setup camera to 5 exposure bracketing (+1.0EV), low ISO, RAW picture format, fixed white balanced setup (e.g. cloudy), focus once automatically and put cam into manual focus mode after that.

2.) 
set your cam to manual measure or try to make the first picture as dark as possible (ok, not full black, just to see some first contrasts)
I have started in my example with 1/400 sec on f4 (but you can start with another value to f-stop to get more sharpness).

3.)
take your pictures in a fast interval, if you have a stormy or windy day. Else you have ghosty clouds that doesn't look very nice...

4.)
Load your 5 exposures into Luminance HDR and set it up like in the picture beneath.

5.) 
nearly there: after saving your HDR, load it into GIMP (ver. 2.8 is the best, intuitive and free picture manipulation software on this planet, trust me! ^^) and do some cosmetics in contrast and color saturation. Use the Dodge and Burn-Pen for particular areas, if you like.

If you have any questions, don't hestiate to ask in the comments below! ^^

Here we are! You first Blog buster HDR drama picture!

The only correct pronunciation of "GIF" is "PNG". I don't argue dead languages except in museums and churches. (runs for cover).
