The Tree Alone Against the World

    Newer Older

    Two textured shots in a row! Sorry, I usually don't do this (put two very similar things back to back on subsequent days) but I've been spending my weekend evenings here recording these videos. I just finished this one and was happy with the way it turned out.

    There was this interesting tree sitting alone after a morning snow. The snow had melted, but the skies still had these white-out conditions. Those skies normally make for very dull visuals, so I thought this would be a good candidate for textures. I think, by now, you guys know I can't stand a boring sky in my photos... and since you can't always have a four-star sunset, maybe it drove me to use the world around me to find textures to re-purpose inside these photos. I don't know. Maybe I'll figure out that bit in a while.

      Looks more like a painting than a photo. Thanks for all your tips and tricks. Your HDR tutorial has helped me a bunch. I don't know how you manage to do all that you do.
