Camping on the Great Wall of China

I'm back in China now, and last night we camped out on the Great Wall inside an old ruined guardhouse. How awesome is that? It was a very long and exhausting day of hiking all over the wall. I have all sorts of crazy and funny stories about the adventure, but I'll save that for another time! I've included some of my favorite photos from the trip below. And be sure to follow our @80Stays Instagram account for even more images!

Easily add Sunrays to your images with Luminar

Here’s a new video I made that shows how I used the new sunrays filter in Luminar to make the sun look so awesome. It’s a really fun trick. I used to do this sometimes in Photoshop, but that is very time consuming. One of my favorite things about this filter is how you can make so many adjustments and even randomize the sun rays.
