Start to Finish Edit of Sunset and Beach Photos

I use Aurora HDR 2018 on most of my images so I thought I'd share my latest post processing techniques. Bracketed images, a single RAW, HDR Enhance, Smart Tone, top and bottom tuning are all covered here... and few other tricks too! :)

Highlights from our recent tour of Japan

You can follow along with us by following the #80Stays hashtag, the 80Stays Instagram account and on my personal Instagram stories.

Breaking Boundaries with Jason Silva

I've been a huge fan of Jason Silva for years. I love his short, fast-paced, inspirational videos. So I was excited when he asked if he could incorporate a few of my images into his latest video "We Are Not Just Human Beings... We Are Human BECOMINGS...". I think you'll enjoy it! is a personal blog where Trey puts up a new unique photo every day and writes about the art, the technology, and the story of the adventures. Actually, this is Trey writing about this in third person. Both Trey and I appreciate your support very much!

Reminder: The Text HDR Tutorial is Always Free!

I keep a completely FREE HDR Tutorial on my website. It is a living document that continues to evolve over the years. It goes over everything you need to get started and is a great introduction to the basics of HDR photography and post processing.

Photos from Hong Kong

We are really enjoying exploring old and new parts of Hong Kong. This is one of the older parts; actually one of the oldest parts of government housing.
We criss-crossed Hong Kong bay a few times in a Chinese junk to get views of the city. While waiting to get on the boat, we found this little hole-in-the-wall burger place, sat outside, and watched all the boats go by while we ate.
Last night we visited the mothership here in Kowloon. What a cool place!
We're in Hong Kong! What a beautiful city! I'm here for four days just taking as many photos and eating as much food as possible. We're continuing our 80 Stays tour and we started with a tremendous party on the top floor of the highest bar in the world at Ozone in The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong. It's on the 118th floor and overlooks all of Hong Kong.
There are beautiful hallways all around these two restaurants here at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong on the 102nd floor. The pattern makes a perfect square and every hallway has different colors and reflections. Yesterday we ate down on the right there at Tosca, a Michelin star restaurant where I ate a little too much Italian food and did not feel guilty enough about it.
Yesterday it was rainy and moody all day here in Hong Kong. But we were out taking photos anyway and loving it. I don't know if you saw my Instagram stories or not, but we have a really good team out with us trying to find cool spots. This was one of those rainy situations where I had to wipe down the lens after every exposure until I could get a clean shot.
