Off to Iceland today

I've been wanting to go to Iceland for a very long time. My wife and I am leaving today. It's going to be great even though the weather report for the next 10 days doesn't look good.

Our plans are to rent a car in Reykjavik and travel the west coast and then up north. To save time, we'll fly back to Reykjavik for some site seeing there. I'll have a full report when we get back.

I'm traveling light on camera gear because we plan to do a lot of hiking even if it rains. Yes, I will carry my tripod and a rain jacket for my camera.

Check out the "HDR Cookbook"

I found this site a while back. Klaus Herrmann (alias Farbspiel) not only does beautiful work but he also shares his entire workflow. He shows before and after pix and goes into great detail as to how he got the finished picture. He has also posted some videos. Very cool stuff. You should check it out, here.

RC's new "The HDR Book"

I just finished reading "RC" Concepcion's (one of the Photoshop guys) new "The HDR Book" and I have to say it's great. The book is like holding a workshop in your hands. For the beginner, it takes you through all the steps required to produce wonderful images. For someone more experience with HDR, there are more than enough exciting tips to make your images even better.

Put it on your list to read.
