Here is another photo I really like. I didn’t make any adjustments at all (no HDR).
I’m practicing my HDR techniques on some photos of mine. Here is one. I used HDR efex pro 2 (free download) to try it out. I’m comparing it to Photomatix, so I’m still not sure which I like better. My problem right now is that with my new Nikon D3200, I take all my photos in RAW format, but my Photoshop CS5 camera RAW doesn’t support my camera. I would have to upgrade to CS6 🙁 I have to resize them to JPEG in ViewNX2 (Nikon software), then process them in HDR software. If I could open my RAW photos in all the software it would be easier to compare. Oh well. It’s still better than doing homework (which I should really be doing).
I finally got a new camera bag for my new camera! It’s from cheeky lime and I just love it.
Well, tomorrow is the first day of school for my daughters, and me too. They are in 11th and 9th grade, and it will be the first time I won’t be taking them to school on their first day. I got a part-time job in their district, but will be working 6-7:20am, so they will be gone when I get home. So glad my older daughter drives 🙂
My classes start in my 2nd to last semester of grad school, and I have decided to drop one class and just take 2 classes. It will be much easier. I’m more nervous about starting a new job than school 🙂
I’ll try to document all this on my new camera! Love it!!!
