How I Edited It: “The Old Barn” ~ USA

A couple of days ago, I shared this photo I took last Fall in Kentucky. It’s an old barn located near Rough River lake with hanging tobacco waiting to be fire cured. The photo was well received but I had a few comments from people telling me “It’s HDR”. Now, on the one hand, I want to ask: “Does it matter?“. This shot is supposed to be a beautiful artistic shot. It’s not a documentary so, it doesn’t really matter what style I use to make it look the way it is. What matters is that I like it and […]

Since then, many more apps that allow users to edit photos directly on their phone, have surfaced. Some are good and some are gimmicky. But it seemed that Android smartphones, although having cameras as good as the iPhone, were lagging behind. The main reason in my opinion was the […]


Fiery Sunset II ~ Thailand

Every once in a while, I go back through my archives to check out some photos and spend some time editing again. Photography is an endless learning process. Every week I learn something new. A new lighting technique, a different way to edit photos, a new idea.. It just doesn’t end. There is no mastering, there is just learning more. Lately I have been trying different techniques to process my photos and so far I’m pleased with the results. Of course the more I learn, the longer I spend time editing. This particular shot took me more than 30 minutes.  Just […]
