Florida Photo Caravan: Delary Beach – 7th Shoot. HDR Rocks!

Photograph by  Rick Sammon
Our Florida Photo Caravan workshop arrived at the Colony Hotel in Delary Beach today. We hit the ground running, making HDR images, and  then having a three-hour lighting class . . . before our model shows up tomorrow.

Middle exposure of HDR sequence. Yuch!
I created the opening image for this post in Nik Software's HDR Efex Pro. For a free one-hour webinar on how to use the plug-in, click here.

Tip: Notice how I corrected the perspective distortion in the original image. In Photoshop, I used Edit > Transform > Perspective and pulled out the top handles. 

I took the series of images with my Canon 14mm lens on my Canon 5D Mark II.

Scroll down to see what our group has been doing on my Florida Photo Caravan workshop. Good fun.
