Painting the Sunset – Stuck in Customs

100 Cameras in 1 going crazy!

Ever since the Instagram debacle with their TOS, sales of 100 Cameras in 1 have been going crazy – I was quite surprised! We were recommended in the top Instagram alternatives from countless websites, like Gizmodo and Fast Company. Here’s what Fast Company had to say about it:

“With a very attractive interface, 100 Cameras in 1 might be a photographer’s favorite–and its quick-search array of filters (each with a nice sentence describing what it does) makes for swift photo snapping. You can even layer effects one atop each other to go totally filter crazy.”

Photomatix Sharpening

I’ve started sometimes using that Photomatix sharpening “Final Touch” at the end… i did it with this photo below, and it does quite a remarkable job! 🙂

Daily Photo – Painting the Sunset

It’s strange to have multicolored coral so close to the beach, but it gave this whole sunset and turquoise water an even more dynamic palette. I’ve been getting used to using a wide-angle lens and aiming it down at the surf. It really distorts everything, but it’s hard to see the distortion in the final shot. Also, I like the effect — it tends to make everything point a little bit towards the center.
