    what influenced everyone to choose photography over another type of art? also what type of photography do you like most (weddings, landscape, portrait..etc)

    My Grandfather loved photography, he had his own darkroom over the garage. He shot Nikon and I'm hoping I can get all of his gear from my uncle (darkroom equipment included). His favorite photographer was Ansel Adams.

    Right now I'm really big into Sports/Photojournalism, but I've always liked landscapes.

    colin your work is a huge influence to me!

    I love photography because of the story of which the photography tells that others may not see, also the detail that many people may miss! also I have a hobby of creating pottery which i haven't done since graduating high school in 2011. I like all types of visual art old and new!

    Question, what's your editing technique to enhance the clouds' darkness? It looks soooo sick. I have a picture of Mt. Hood with some clouds over it and I've been trying to darken them to give it a dark feel but I keep failing. :(


    Or do you just do true HDRs?

    I try to do true HDRs but sometimes I cheat and just make 3 exposures out of my raw files. But if you didn't take a raw you can sometimes fake it with a jpg. Post up the pic so we can see.

    I shoot RAW as well, but I haven't gotten into multiple exposures or anything. :eek:


    I just started using CS5 a few weeks ago, so I'm still learning. :p


    Here's the RAW file (in JPEG format, since I don't know any other way to upload it here):





    I know it's not much now, but it's not edited. :laugh:

    Do you have a HDR program? like photomatix or anything like that? That picture should be ok to make into a HDR, but do you want your nice fluffy clouds all dark and mean looking?
