HDR Tutorial

I did this for my brother who’s tinkering around with HDR. He took the photos and I used them to show my workflow. I used Lightroom, Photomatix and Noiseware as part of the workflow process. Hope you find it worth the 15 minutes. You can watch the HD version on Facebook or just play the version below.

Painful, life is

Painful, life is

Painful, is life
at times
when we feel
lonely
when we feel
broken
when we feel
unmotivated

Painful, is life
when we cannot
reach a goal
when we cannot
save time for ourselves
when we cannot
fulfill our needs

Painful, is life
in shadows
of memories that haunt us

Painful, is life
in death
and sorrow

Painful, is life
in despair
and devastation

Painful, is life
closing in on us
suffocating
the very breaths
we need to
survive

Painful, is life
in the end
