Your comments and feedback are important to me. When someone comments here I try my best to go to their blog and see what they have been up to. Sometimes I comment, when appropriate, sometimes not. But I do try to visit all of you.
My intent was not to create an instructional blog, however I do not mind sharing how I create these Images if it will help you. So if you have the need to know, ask away.
My work schedule may dictate how fast I answer your questions, so please be patient and I will do my best to help.
A few people have asked me about my Snowflakes and Stars post.
First, I do not use any special software other than Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I don't use HDR at this time. If you would like to see HDR, I would suggest checking out Dan Felstead, http://woodandpixels.blogspot.com/ his work is the best in my opinion.
So, M. Hassan, and VALKYRIEN,
Snowflakes and Stars was shot in one exposure. The snowflakes are Christmas ornaments hung with clear fishing line, and the stars are small Christmas tree lights. The background was a large sheet of blue textured stained glass with light coming from behind. No, it was not cold in the studio. That is only If we are shooting ice cream.
The most difficult thing about this capture was getting everything on Santa's Sleigh, without breaking the stained glass...
So there you have it, stay tuned for the update on the inside of the small church in Mexico.
