I’ve been down in California for over a week now. Most of the sunsets have been uneventful. A couple of days ago I decided to go down to the beach anyways, to take in whatever materialized.
Skies like this don’t motivate me to shoot at sunset. However, clear skies are good for astrophotography, which I’ve been doing a bit of the past 2 nights. Last night I did something totally new and challenging. I had a model that wanted to pose nude on a beach under the milky way. I was really nervous about being able to make the images work, because I didn’t think there would be enough light to freeze the model in the image, but I managed to improvise with a flashlight and got some good shots.
Back to this photo, on that particular day, I ended up playing with some apps, trying to compare HDR apps with the new relight app that I was given a promo code for the other day. The best shot I got (above) was taken with ProHDRX. Thats not to say its the best app. I need to do serious test shots on a tripod, instead of handheld. I have a bunch of stuff to do when I get back to Oregon, so I hope I remember to compare those apps soon.
