Florida Photo Caravan: Delary Beach – 7th Shoot. HDR Rocks!

Photograph by  Rick Sammon
Our Florida Photo Caravan workshop arrived at the Colony Hotel in Delary Beach today. We hit the ground running, making HDR images, and  then having a three-hour lighting class . . . before our model shows up tomorrow.

Middle exposure of HDR sequence. Yuch!
I created the opening image for this post in Nik Software's HDR Efex Pro. For a free one-hour webinar on how to use the plug-in, click here.

Tip: Notice how I corrected the perspective distortion in the original image. In Photoshop, I used Edit > Transform > Perspective and pulled out the top handles. 

I took the series of images with my Canon 14mm lens on my Canon 5D Mark II.

Scroll down to see what our group has been doing on my Florida Photo Caravan workshop. Good fun.

In Febuary 2012, we are launching Delray Digital - four weekend-long photo workshops – Friday night to Saturday night. Interested? Shoot me an email at

My HDR iPad app is in the works. It should be available in late February!

Explore the light,

P.S. Here is another image from this afternoon's shoot. Some gear, same digital darkroom stuff.

First off let me say i'm a big admirer of your pictures, i just love them.

With all do respect and out of pure curiosity: i have always wonder if there's any reason why you are not posting here higher res pictures like your good friend Trey Ratcliff?. I'm asking this because I personally find it a lot more enjoyable looking at a higher res picture than a low res (read: really small picture on my monitor).

If i'm out of line here, please feel free to ignore my comment
