Angie, Elvis and I drove to Arkansas to spend Thanksgiving with Joni, Caleb and Braxton. Today (Monday) was a photo day so I researched Ozark National Forest as I had photographed the eastern side near Buffalo Area near Pedstal Rock and Whitaker Point (Hawksbill). This time I went to the Haw Creek area about 15 miles west of Pelsor.
Still a lot of great color this time of the year.
I learned a lot about polarizing, 10 stop neutral density and graduated filters from Matt Suess in Zion National Park. I put some of the long exposures techniques to use on this crisp morning. I normally like to use HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos but using filters tends to be more difficult and results in a lot of "hit and miss" photos. Once the exposure is zeroed in then you try different apertures and shutter speeds to get the likable results.
I also use Abobe Lightroom for my cataloging and photo refinement. I have found once you do your normal development I use the Hue, Saturation and Luminance to bring out the fall colors.
I also made a couple of virtual realities with my Google Cardboard camera software on my LG V10 android phone. I highly recommend getting familiar with the Google VR technique as it is a "poor man's" virtual reality gimmick. Before long it will be a full motion interaction as fast as the technology is moving.
May God Bless you and yours as I have been blessed for this Thanksgiving week!
