Hawaii, the life is beautiful

Hawaii, the life is beautiful

I have not watched The Descendants yet but I think the life in Hawaii is always beautiful. If you have such a great weather all the time, every sunrise and sunset like watching a cartoon, great nature to hike, snorkel, surf and so on…what else you would like from life ūüėČ This is an HDR […]

California, killer wave

This shot may cost me my iphone 4S, if Apple does not replace it, and my D300 body if the service cannot repair…With a photographer friend, we were shooting the waves and surfers from top of a rock close to this view. A big wave like in the photo came and knocked us both out. […]

Maui, another great sunset

This from our lovely Hawaii trip. Every sunset in this island was like watching a cartoon. The color in the sky were so vivid…I made this HDR with 5 steps 1EV. I also used 8 stops ND filter to get longer exposure which works pretty good when the water in motion is framed….

Longsheng Rice Terrace, Guilin, China..

This is my first blog post after longtime. I would like to post often here, once or twice in a week. I was a bit discouraged after my website being hacked many times but I think now I set enough security to over come weird attacks I really hate this hackers… I made this photo […]

Myth 2

Myth 2

    I am still exploring black and white photography. I made this one yesterday when I took a guest to a viewpoint of Golden Gate. It was half covered with fog, of course not so surprising for Golden Gate. When I made the first photo called Myth, I had a straight perspective to the […]

Tree of Duo

Tree of Duo

This is another picture from my San Francisco architectural tour. While I was walking around the Market street, I saw this tree with pinky¬†flowers. I placed my camera just under the tree and made the shooting vertical without really seeing the view. It turn out to be a good one. Even tough I liked the […]

Lights and Lines

Lights and Lines

I am working on a new project and I wanted to make some more San Francisco pictures. My intention was to shoot San Francisco skyline, Victorian Houses and Cable Car which are typical San Francisco postcard images. First of all, I could not really find a good spot to shoot Skyline. I am still working […]

Kauai sunset

Kauai sunset

HDR photography is the best for sunset scenes. It can contribute a lot to your images. For a sunset scene, if you just want to shoot normal rather than HDR, please do not try to shoot hand-hold. Tripod is absolute necessary even for single regular shoot. If you are serious with photography, do not think […]

Rocks, Sea and Golden Gate

Rocks, Sea and Golden Gate

One can find several places to shoot in San Francisco but Golden Gate is¬†particularly¬†papular… In this one, the focus is not really golden date, it is more secondary. I want to present it a way that its¬†heavy¬†figure would not really dominate the composition. Probably the rocks and the waves take the first¬†attention. ¬†Then the sky […]

Making HDR image does not really require a fancy camera or technique. I made this photo with a point and shoot camera. It was shot in JPEG and as single exposure. I tone-mapped the single image in photomatix. Tone-mapping of single image is not a¬†preferred way of creating HDR image but it can¬†definitely¬†be used to […]
