Are you actively involved or have you been involved with camera clubs and groups? When I was at the slough last week I had a fella remind me that he met me last year at the slough. I thought, oh yeah, I remember you (kind of, I meet a lot of people when I’m out shooting.) He made a comment that I never made it to camera club, and then it dawned on me that I do remember this dude. I’d love to be part of a camera club, but I really enjoy the free-time I do have being spent in the field. I always feel I barely have time to take photos let alone discuss them on Sunday mornings. So, I guess my question is do you belong to any camera clubs or photo groups that meet up weekly/bi-weekly/monthly etc… and what do you guys do?
This photo is a 2 exposure blend of an underexposed image and a neutral image using layer masks and luminosity masks. I wanted the colors in the sky in the underexposed image, and the lighter tones in my foreground, tree-line, and partial water. I used masking from channel selecting dark tones to achieve this image. I also used a few gray layers to bump out a few of the darker areas.
