HDR Presets.

A tendency to play video games more than go out with my camera at the weekends has been a crippling habit of mine lately.  However, I noticed something about my photos after looking through the last three months of the year.  Safe to say I’m not taking enough.  Making HDR photos has been a fun pursuit and I’m quite happy with the results I can achieve using Trey Ratcliff’s Presets available at www.stuckincustoms.com

HDRs are fun if you have the time to do the post processing and the HDD space to count for all the RAW files it takes to make your images.  With living in a small town though, I’m really limiting myself to being able to produce more significant HDR imagery and hopefully will be travelling further afield this year.

Limited Access

Unfortunately I have now limited access to the internet. Besides that I should still be posting photos through instagram and hopefully to flickr too. I am still available on twitter and facebook.
Apart from it really being an inconvenience for me I will have a reason to get out with my camera more.
Still on the topic of limited access as a photographer it really is quite painful and such a big obstacle when you don’t have the liberty to access the net from home. The amount of usage I get from the internet normally without using it for photography I have also took for granted. My xbox live subscription is going to waste, I can’t access emails frequently, sharing photos is harder to do and reading internet articles on my phone strains my eyes.
Gonna try and stay positive about it all though and make the most of my time on and off the internet.
