Photo of the Day: Solitary

Solitary. (Click to Enlarge)

I’m back from a quick trip to the east coast, where I had the chance to hang out with Tony Sweet and Bob Krist. Tony took us to Eastern State Penitentiary, where we observed the epitome of the term “decrepit.” ESP is a fantastic place to shoot HDR, because you can bring out the amazing textures. Here’s one of my shots from the trip, tone-mapped in HDR Efex Pro.

Dawn in Badlands National Park, South Dakota (Click to enlarge)

Some of the best light in the South Dakota Badlands is at or before sunrise. Here’s a shot from Badlands National Park, where you can join me June 9-12, 2011 for a photo safari.

Specs: Nikon D2x with 17-55mm f/2.8 DX lens. Five bracketed exposures merged and tone-mapped in HDR Efex Pro and then sharpened in Capture NX 2.

Photo of the Day: Off to Grandma’s House

Have you seen a little girl walking by here wearing a red cape? (Click to enlarge)

This image was captured on one of my first shoots with my Nikon D3. Taken at the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center, where you can visit the wolves to support our knowledge and understanding of these really amazing animals. For a real treat, you can get a photo tour of the wolves from inside the enclosures.

Enjoy!

Photo of the Day: Badlands Moon (HDR)

Moon over Badlands National Park, South Dakota, USA (Click to enlarge)

Here’s a shot from my previous trip to Badlands National Park in 2005. Some of the best color shows up before sunrise and right after sunset during extended twilight. This is an image that combined a bracketed sequence of 5 shots in Nik’s HDR Efex Pro to get more tonal range and preserve some detail in the moon.

You can join me for a 4-day photo safari to the Badlands June 9-12, 2011.
