Art of Cityscape photography by Jimmy McIntyre

I get many questions about a video tutorial, and I plan to do one, but it will still take a lot of time until one is ready. But my friend Jimmy McIntyre recently released a complete series of tutorials where he goes through all different post-processing steps, including luminance masking. I’m still in the middle of watching them, but from what I have seen, he uses a lot of the similar steps as I do. I will post a longer review of the course later, but as Jimmy currently gives a 10$ discount for his Art of Citiscape course, I decided to share it now.

The course is normally 34.99$, but the current discount price until Tuesday is 24.99$. And if that is still too much for you, if you use the discount code “hdrshooter” you will get an additional discount of 5$ :)

You can get more info on the course and it’s content here: Art of Cityscape photography

Sunset light

Today I have for you another shot from Paris. This one was taken from the Eiffel tower around sunset. At first I thought I will play with it a little more, but my computer had a different idea. Nothing really worked as it should today. Very slow Photoshop, slow responses, horribly slow internet. I had such problems even uploading the photo, upload to smugmug didn’t worked at all. And I’m on a fast line. It’s just one of those day.

This is a manual blend from 6 shots.
