A less Subtle look into Light Painting

The other day I talked about why and how I use ACR to bring out more drama in my landscape images. Most of the time I like to be subtle so that it’s not obvious what I’m doing. The reason being that I want people to stop and look at the image and say to […]

Working that Thunderstorm

Well I wasn’t kidding when I said on Monday that it has been a busy time but I got out for a little bit chasing the thunderstorm that we had a couple nights ago. It didn’t produce to much lightning but the god beams were fantastic. No barn to put with them but a large […]
