Tone Mapping n stuffs...??? In PA...

So... my friend gave me a Pro version of this program... 1 of the typical programs, for the HDR stuffs...

I have no idea WHAT THE HECK I'm doing... the Pro version is unlike the evaluation versions... and, I am entirely clueless as to how to do a batch in Photoshop... I also don't always like the results people get with the Photoshop stuffs...

Er... um... sorry if these suck.... or if you hate 'em....

Anyways, it was still fun to play with the program... which also crashed my comp multiple times.

Um... so, here's my stinky tone mapping, and other such stuffs.... I guess:



 A lot of these it took me hours to tweek. I'd shot so many exposures, but because my tripod is SO friggin' OLD, and my remote at the time was on a short wire/chord there was a wobble. So, many of my exposures were just out right useless, and went into THE TRASH! Sometimes, as much as 30 frames, just TRASHED!





 I did 2 major photo shoots behind The Philadelphia Art Museum. On the day I shot the ones above, I really started to chocke the life out of that battery... it was already dying, but, man, I seriously tortures it for my art!

Something I often complain about is the OVER USE of certain filters, usually I see most folks OVER USE the UV filter... and ALSO the Polarized Filter...

That's me speaking as AN ARTIST... since Photographers of the college degree sort have entirely different opinions of Photography than ARTISTS, or Film Makers do... But, in my opinion the the UV filter doesn't necessarily "give you better colors" like the packaging on virtually ALL UV Filters claim/allege...

Having said (or written) that, if CAN give you better BLUE color exposure in MID DAY, especially in THE SUMMER even if you're shooting on a Landscape aperture... and... um... yeah... I gotta admit that NOT ONLY do I have a TENDENCY to UNDER USE the UV Filter, because I TEND to have a HATEFUL BIAS towards it...

In which case.... in retrospect, I think this shoot would've benefited a LOT more if I'd actually used the UV Filter....
And, in further conclusion... hence the reason why THESE SUCK! 


Marcus Hook somewhere... some abandoned factory... I actually shot SOOOOO many frames of these... I haven;t even played with them all... but, the program seems to want to "match the clouds" more than "matching the features"... which screws up the batches... It's weird because I've done clouds/sunset batches before in a lesser sophisticated program by the same company... without ANY problems... 

Also, these batches crash my comp alot.

I got more... but, haven;t played with them yet...





What's great about HDR stuffs, is how you can see stuff you wouldn't even notice in the regular photos... Like, in these, the graffiti is just SO noticeable!

Anyways... sorry they suck...

Pirate Festival in Marcus Hook PA 2012

So, here I am, up to no good, at the Pirate Festival. 'Tis I, in character as Marshall Kändiß (or Marshall Kandice, but it sounds like "Can-Deess").
That's right! I out-rank ye all!
Mwah-hah-ha-ha-hahahahahaaaa!!!

Being wicked & naughty is somewhat exhausting...

I ordered Pirate Pebbs, my accomplice, to use my camera and shoot some photos of me!



























Here I be with me accomplice, Pirate Pebbs, giving an interview to the press about how wickedly naughty we are, and our insidious antics we get up to!







(These 2 Photos are by "Pyracy Pub")












When you're a Pyrate like us, sometimes you just can't help it, but ye just gotta steal something!

So, I stole the show from the band "Pirates For Sale" whom I'd been up to no-good antics with the very night before! ARGH!
