The First of Many

The new year is upon us and everybody is gearing up to fulfill their New Year’s resolution. Whether it is to be more active, complete a marathon, or fulfill another task, it’s a great time to start something new.

I havent personally made a resolution yet, but I will be more conscientious in posting on my blog on a more regular basis. And it won’t be a good start if I miss a post on the first day would it!

With each post, I will have an accompanying photo and will talk a little bit about it, to hopefully educate my readers on how I approach photography—or iphoneography.

This first post was taken on a glorious evening in Fiji, where I witnissed one of the most spectacular sunsets in my life. The colour changes were quick but a beautiful display of Mother Nature nonetheless.

Trying to capture this moment was difficult because of the ever changing light. Setting up on a tripod ensured that I could use as slow a shutter speed as I needed to get the feel that I was after. This was three exposures combined using tone mapping in Photomatix Pro. A little touch up in Photoshop to enhance sharpness and colour, and that was all to hopefully capture that magic moment.
