Today. Going back to June and the Windy Pixel Workshop for today's post. I usually try to keep things fresh on project 365, but I haven't been able to go out as much as usual lately, but I am hoping that changes soon. This was taken from North Ave Beach during a beautiful sunrise.

Today. Yesterday was a first for me, runtography speaking that is. I have slowly started to grow tired of the same spots within a 5 or so mile radius of where I live. Yesterday, inspired by Justin Kern's shot, I drove to Chinatown, parked the car, and explored the sites on the run. I was hoping it wouldn't come to this, but it has been a little tough to find inspiration seeing the same places over and over again. Maybe I just need a break from my usual running routes.

This shot was captured at the Fire Station in Chinatown.

Today. This should be the last of my Laguna Beach shots, at least for a little bit. This was actually taken at the wedding I was attending with my 35mm prime lens, and was taken handheld.

For those that don't know, the way the HDR technique works is that I will fire off multiple exposures of the same scene at varying exposure times to capture different details in the lighter and darker portions of the scene. Then, I blend them together using a program called Photomatix. I usually will then do a bit of manipulating in photoshop to get the final look I was going for. Since I didn't have my tripod with me here, I had to create a pseudo HDR out of this shot with just one image.

Today. A new milestone is reached today with my 265th post. Just 100 more until project 365 is complete! Today's shot is another from Laguna Beach. This shot really took a lot of work to recover the proper colors. Also, I had to do some rotating of the image in order to keep that horizon straight, something I usually don't like to do too much of. They say it's always better to nail it in the camera than it is to fix it in post, and I agree. Let me know your thoughts.
