I will be sending a monthly newsletter to my fans starting in December. It will have a featured monthly theme and photograph. It will include other photos related to that theme. It will offer an opportunity to invest in my fine art photography through my Focus to Frame website. If you are interested in investing in one of my photos and are reluctant to order it through my website please contact me. As you know I print, mat and custom frame in my framing shop. I can save you 25% off of my website prices. I will ship the print or framed print to you. I only do paper prints. Anything other than paper print needs to be ordered through my Focus to frame website. Go beyond the wall with magnets, mugs, ornaments, and other customized print items.
Seal Beach Pier California Panoramic
This photograph is an HDR-Panoramic photograph consisting of 21 separate images run through High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing and then stitched together in Lightroom Panorama merge. Ah, the wonders of creative photography software we have access to these days. This image is the Seal Beach Pier at sunset how I love to photograph the natural beauty of our world and tie it into architectural structures. There are several programs available to post-process images. I use Aurora HDR by Skylum, Adobe Lightroom Classic CC and Photoshop CC. The latest update to Lightroom Classic allows in a single step; you can also merge multiple exposure-bracketed photos (with consistent exposure offsets) to create an HDR panorama.
Slide Show Composition Presentation
I designed this powerpoint presentation called "15 Composition Techniques That Will Improve Your Photography," which I recently performed as a live presentation to the local Oasis Arts club and the Murrieta Arts Counsel. I inserted enough information with each slide, making it easy to go through the display on your own without audio or me doing the voice over the slideshow. It covers the main points of composition that will help improve your photography. Always remember we may call these rules, but they are only guidelines. Plus you can combine different guidelines in the same photo. Please feel free to comment if you have input or questions about the techniques I presented. Enjoy the slideshow.
