WDYS/PPTM August - Because no one else would do it.

We're almost a week in, what's everyone shooting this month?

Been working non-stop painting and doing boring commercial stuff no one wants to see, so I'll throw something old in from July.



Not my usual style I guess.

Went out last night to play with my second siggy 50 f/1.4. Shot both of these wide open. Lens is tack sharp wide open, but it's quite a mental workout to nail focus in that tiny DOF. Our little girl decided she was going to eat her sling...

Went to an anime convention in Orlando last weekend. First time using my 17-50mm f/2.8 Tammy with my Lightsphere. Last time I did a convention I used my 35mm f/1.8 with no flash and it was just way too dark in some places to do anything. This seemed to work pretty well though.

Marketing team at work asked me to get a shot of our building at sunset. Instead of a sunset we had a ridiculous thunder storm. This is what I got after the clouds broke up a bit. All I had with me was my 28-70 2.8 and zero filters.

Tips/Suggestions on improving this type of shot in the future are greatly appreciated...

looks good to me. Much better than a lot of other places do things. An ND filter would be cool if you want the sky to "move" to give it a little more drama. Also you could do a subtle HDR when needed.

The process that I do is Manual settings based on the dynamic range you want. Manual WB also. Then take it to Photoshop and merge the images...then to LR and do the processing of colors/shadows.

You could also get a plugin that will do merging of photos for LR that works really well. It's the same guy that made "mogrify" for LR and then reimport it into LR and do it that way.

The last picture I posted was 3 exposures. One where it got everything frozen in the sky (darks), and then a subtle moving of the clouds (regular exposure) and a long exposure. LR with the plugin merged them all and did a great job of making the static shot merge with the moving clouds to do it. It's an HDR shot without it making it looked overprocessed and was mostly automatic.

as I scrolled down I saw the picture with the guy in the hard hat. First reaction before I got past the horizontal post was that you took a picture of him peeing.

Seriously, just scroll to where you can see the post as the bottom of the page. Totally peeing.
