Not Nature but lots of fun: Old Car City


For all of you car buffs and macro buffs and HDR buffs, have I got a place for you. I’ve been there several times and will be planning a workshop there in November (if I’m not in Antarctica). Located 60 miles north of Atlanta, on US Highway 411 in White GA is a well kept […]

HDR: It is all about your mood!


HDR (High Dynamic Range) combines the best exposure areas from numerous photos to create one image. Since our eye can see about 20 stops of light from dark to light and the camera can see 5-7 stops of light from dark to light, there is usually a difference between what we see and what the […]

We all process information differently, even colors mean something different to each one of use when viewed with our eyes (and brain). Our eyes alone don’t process color, it […]

Even though the tonality range of capture has increased with digital ( ~ 5 stops for slide film to ~6-8 […]
