How to use Magic Lantern

While on the video topic, I also did a second video, specially about Magic lantern. It’s all about how I use it, and how I set it up.

For those unfamiliar, Magic lantern is a custom firmware for specific Canon cameras that give additional features. For me of course the most important is, that it allows for more than 3 brackets. You can find out more in my review of it.

10k and 100k

Recently I have been more active on my 500px account and today I reached my first milestone there. Or better said two of them. Today I got 10 000 affection (thats a metric that combines all likes and favorites there) and secondly I reached my first 100 000 views there. Many thanks to all of you who visit and vote for my photos there :)

Not really sure why I left a little softer colors in this one. I even left a little yellow color cast here. Maybe because while I was editing I was listening to great music (Beatles, Queen, Abba, New order and similar :)) that I got in a particular mood. Still, I like the result very much, and I hope you will too.

This is of course the Apollo bridge in Bratislava, and one of my favorite spots there. This is a HDR from 5 exposures created in Oloneo Photoengine and then blended with two of the original exposures in Photoshop.
