    HDR Photography Using Layer Masks and Hand Blending Techniques in Photoshop

    This isn’t meant to be a step-by-step tutorial on how to do hand-blending HDRs. Every situation is going to be different. I’m just going to show you how I process most of my landscape pictures. What is HDR? HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. Since your camera can not replicate what your eye sees, you […]

    The Backyard DIY Photography Blind and Habitat

    A note: I originally wrote this in my blog. One of the editors from read it and wanted me to submit it, with some minor changes. I’m posting this so you can find it better. A few years ago, I decided to set up a few bird feeders and a small blind in my […]

  • Sunset at Lundy Lake

    Sunset at Lundy Lake

    I spent the day between Convict Lake and Conway Summit in search of fall colors. My normal locations was either past due or the colors were not quite ready. Last year I stayed at the beaver pond at Lundy Canyon for sunset. This year I thought I’d go to Lundy Lake. There were some nice […]

  • Sunrise at Convict Lake

    Sunrise at Convict Lake

    I spent the night at the Convict Lake Campground. I got some nice dramatic skies that evening and I was hoping for the same for that morning. It wasn’t quite as dramatic that morning, but I had some nice colors in the sky. Thought I’d take a picture of me and my camp before I […]

  • Laurel Mountain at Sunset

    Laurel Mountain at Sunset

    I was planning on going up to the eastern Sierra for the fall colors next week (19th and 20th). I decided to go this weekend mainly because of the recent storms. I was hoping to catch some nice photography weather (clouds/storms) and some fall colors. I figured if the fall colors weren’t epic, maybe I […]
