When I was in Maldives, trying to spend as little time working as I could I surfed the web when I should have been “working” and ended up reading as much as I could about this, that and the other thing. Somehow or other, I stumbled onto this amazing site, Stuck in Customs. It sounds unfun of course and anyone who has traveled as much as I have will agree, there is no such thing as an enjoyable experience being stuck in the airport (especially customs). However, this blog talks about, “HDR photography,” which at the time was an entirely new concept to me.
Fast forward a few years and while I’m not an expert, I have dabbled in the process enough to convert a few photos. Most of those, you’ll see here or there and the difference between a standard photo and an HDR shot is truly unreal. Every friend, family member or acquaintance I’ve shared my “favorite photo” library with has been blown away by the visuals. While I would love to take all the credit, a massive chunk of that has to do with the discovery of Stuck in Customs website, the tutorials there and the amazing photos. A link is a small payment for something so wonderful and so I’d like to ask you all a favor. Take five minutes, surf his website and then share it with friends, family or loved ones who appreciate stunning, beautiful images. I have never met a person who abhors nice pictures and his are truly masterful works of art in their own right.
