Great Blue Heron Sunrise at Wakodahatchee

Apr 10, 2011 | Animals & Wildlife

This is me playing around and trying to create a new processing technique for birds. Most of you already know I enjoy photographing birds. I got tons of bird photos from Thailand, but I don’t plan on posting them on I’ll be starting another website just for posting bird photos. However photos posted on that site will be strictly be in-camera with some miner adjustment to color, contrast and sharpness. Any bird photo that I spend more than 10 minutes processing will be posted here.

As for the HDR Portrait e-book and action… I am currently working on the e-book, the Photoshop Action is complete. Right now I’m taking a little breather and getting settled back in from my 2 month Thailand trip. Expect the release of the e-book and action next month!
