Photo Of The Day 004

Some of the steps I take when editing my sunset photos.

Ignited with the final light of the setting sun. The sky was set ablaze with color.  For the past week the sky has been alive with color.  While busy with work and errands I make time at the end of the day to stop whatever it is I am doing to watch the setting sun.  Each one is different from the last.

When I shoot a sunset I lean more toward editing with the foreground in shadow rather than going with the HDR look.  I feel It helps draw the attention toward the main focus of the image.  Also I will add a subtle vignette to the edges and finish with a graduated filter in Lightroom at the top to give the sky a cooler feeling as your view draws further from the setting sun.

I took this photo with my 85mm prime as ISO 400, f/4.0, and 1/250sec.

Photo Of The Day 001

Whenever I make a trip to the central coast I make it a point to visit SLO at least once.

After a long drive out the night before I was not too happy to get up before the sun.  But on this trip I made it a point to visit key locations, and my visit was short. When I arrived I set up my tripod, composed my shot and took 5 photos at different exposures.  I did this so that I could stitch them together in Lightroom and have an HDR image.  An HDR (high dynamic range) photo would give me a huge range of detail to use in the shadows and the highlights. I shot this photo at 18mm, f/16, with an ISO set to 400.
