A 6 shot HDR from Maui. Very interesting location with an old sugar mill completely taken over by a tree; an unreal location crossed between history, spray paint, and nature.
I shot the images with a Canon 5d Mk II, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L, Induro C213, and RRS BH-55.
I am not sponsored by the Induro tripod brand but their product is very, very good at an incredible cost. The competition is Gitzo who make a very nice tripod. Unfortunately, Gitzo charges over $800 for the tripod I have at around $350. No comparison!
The money you save on an Induro tripod will allow you to purchase the best camera support gear on the planet. Really Right Stuff gear is totally bombproof. Worth every single penny.
Heading back to Cali Monday evening. Just in time for another few courses, Fine Art Montage with Jim Divitale, HDR Intensive at LIGHT, Photoshop 2, and Total Workflow in Lightroom.
We also must dominate the annual Paso Robles Winemakers' Barbeque Cook-Off Saturday the 8th of August. As many of you know we at Midnight Cellars and Volatus are the defending champions and are about to tear it up again with a filet wrapped bacon. Yes, you read it correctly. Thick bacon cooked perfectly wrapped in killer, thin-sliced fillet mignon grilled to perfection and delicately covered in a 24 hour reduction of red wine, stock, and veg. Did I mention the double chocolate, port infused brownies for dessert?
