UrbEx

UrbEx and HDR of yore

I honestly can’t remember the last time I spent more than a passing minute tone-mapping an HDR image or stylizing an UrbEx (Urban Exploration) photo. It has been even longer since the last time I went on an UrbEx shoot. I think it was with my buddy, Todd Sipes, but I can’t remember. I’m sure he’d know better than me […]

Once functioning

I’ve been battling a pretty gnarly flu since getting back from Australia (I wholly blame Colby, who I sat next to on the flight back from Oz).

HDRSoft releases Photomatix 5!

I’ve used just about every tone-mapping product out there in the years that I’ve incorporated HDR with my photography. Ultimately, I’ve always found the results that Photomatix produces to be most favorable for me. Whenever anyone asks me which product they should use for tone-mapping, I always recommend that they download the trial installers of each, run the […]
