As someone who shoots digital and slide film at a professional level I am always out shooting and thinking of new ways to advance myself not only as a photographer but also as a teacher of the art.
The images below are a series I shot last night – 12th August 2008 of a glorious sunset over Terrigal Beach on the the Central Coast. The shots are taken with my new digital workflow technique where I am able to capture a scene with a huge dynamic range in a single exposure.
All images are panoramic stitches taken on a Canon 1ds Mark II | 90% of the images are processed in Adobe Camera RAW (well taken original images are essential) then moved into CS3 for final touches (sharpening, dust removal, colour cast removal, minor cropping to 3:1 ratio). All images are approx 400MB @ 300 dpi.
This new work flow is now taught in all my courses. See my main website www.mattlauder.com.au for course dates and locations.
