Charlotte in HDR

Charlotte,NC shot with iPhone 5 with App BRACKET which allows for two fast exposures across the exposure range and then combined and tweaked in TRUE HDR for the final result. Very cool, no ?
Enjoy, Jeff

Shot today with an iPhone 5, olloclip wide angle lens, gorilla pod tripod, iPhone cable release and processed in TRUE HDR after shooting with Bracket App. The olloclip app was used last to correct wide angle distortion.

Enjoy, Jeff

Today's Gift

Today was a day of reflection. Noticing these mushrooms in our front yard growing at the base of our weeping willow gave me pause.  They are beautiful, but lethal,  being of the Amanitas species, one cap could kill a man of my size in less than 24 hours.  How could such a harmless looking fungus be so deadly?  Up close, it is beautiful. Note the off white color, the detail of the cap and stem.  This was shot using a Nikon D200 with a Minolta 50mm macro lens on a Tamron Adaptall mount, allowing the Minolta lens to work with the Nikon.  Exposure was done manually and the shot was handheld by me lying on the ground.  I estimate the f stop to be between 5.6 and 8.0.  Lightly edited in iPhoto and PS CS.  Ah, some of you will ask about the red leaf.  It was there in the front, I simply moved it to the back.

Enjoy, Jeff

Lake George from Prospect Mountain

One of the greatest tools of the modern iPhone is the ability to create a panorama. This can be done within the camera application or I think better yet, from using another camera application and then stitching the photographs in an application called AutoStitch. For this I use the application camera plus to take five overlapping photographs and then stitched them in AutoStitch. A little bit of cropping and then editing created the final result. Very easy to do and actually a much better result than the in camera panorama that is native to the iPhone.
