Introducing… HDR iPhone Friday!

iphonehdrphotography, iPhone, HDR, hdrphotographyIntroducing… HDR iPhone Friday!!

Allow me to do some splaining. I am looking for some pure fun in my photography. Maybe something a bit off center from traditional stuff.

Each Friday between now and the end of 2017 I will capture one random snap shot from somewhere I am during the day and create a single image HDR.

These are definitely not for sale… only for fun. And I hope you too will join in the fun. If you do HDR photography and want to create your own HDR iPhone image you can share it at www.facebook.com/hdrbyspencer. I would love to see your iPhone work as well.

Some back story on this snap shot…

It had been a wildly successful day and was feeling like two beers at one time was my reward. Hey… don’t you judge me!

By the way… when I have an unsuccessful day I usually drink three beers at one time. AGAIN… don’t you judge me! 🙂

I my mind I saw a final image that had under tones or hints of neon coloring. During editing I turned up the blue and magenta to try and create a pink, green,  and blue glow.

I always create with Photomatix Pro. There is no substitute for awesome HDR editing. Get your only copy and save 15% by entering the code hdrbyspencer.

Seeking 2 Elite Real Estate Professionals

Business is booming…

No matter the naysayers who told me that homes were selling so fast that real estate professionals did not need to include “high end” photography to their marketing efforts.

I respectfully disagree!

I believe the difference in your average “run of the mill” real estate professional and one who has the ELITE EDGE is the rock solid dedication to their clients, building an elite brand of excellence, and always delivering service that exceeds all expectations.

As my clients… I adore and respect those real estate professionals who have put their trust in my photography. It is my mission to deliver excellence in every opportunity I am fortunate to get.

Living like a Millennial on Chinese and Uber Eats

I was the walking dead this morning. Like a feral zombie formed by a night of dining, dancing, drinking, and delving too deep into an overload of carbs. My head on fire with streaks of pain and two Tylenol acting as fire fighters to extinguish the burning flames raging though my grey matter.

Unconsciously I ripped the  refrigerator door open to a blinding white light and a typical box of left over carbs aptly titled Chinese food.

FLASHBACK: Here is where the story begins.

Last night my wife and I decided to live like Millennials. It was an absolute blast… not the bad Chinese food mind you, but the Uber Eats experiment.

Our goal… no movement from our recliners and Chinese food that just arrives at the door.

Enter Uber Eats and Steve the driver! What a beautiful age we live in. The age of Laziness.

So I’m thinking… this Uber Eats thingee could become a really bad thingee very fast. I can just imagine myself growing to 300 or more pounds just by being SUPER LAZY and using Uber Eats for all my food source. It will be something like a scene right out of Wall-E. 🙂

Anyway… back to the bright refrigerator light and leftover Chinese food.

Then I decided this needs something. It needs my HDR editing touch. SO…… looky at what I did with LightRoom 6, Photomatix Pro 6, and Topaz Glow 2.

Now this simple and typical Chinese food box of ugliness is no more.

Now this Chinese food box has become a work of art. Don’t you think? And… AND it all started with walking like a feral zombie to my kitchen aimlessly seeking food and caffeine.

SIDE NOTE: No animals, humans, politicians, Kings, Queens, or countries were hurt in the making of this Neon Glow image.

It all came from my creative minds eye and the inner talent of post processing thousands upon thousands of photos from simple, bland, boring flat images into eye catchers.

The best part…. even YOU can do this. Here is all you need.

  • A computer
  • An iPhone, camera of your choice
  • LightRoom software
  • Photomatix Pro software
  • Topaz Glow 2 plug-in
  • About 20 minutes for tweaking and creating

Come on over to my Neon Glow gallery and see some of my best images. This is a fun process and love the artsy fartsy feel and look of these little gems.

Peace out and no more Chinese for a while. 😉
