Picks of the Week

Show Notes:

Scrapbook Update Contributing Writer May Flaum very kindly volunteered to share a photo of the house that she made using a birdhouse and textured grunge board that Amy talked about on the show this week:

To see her full article on the project, including technique close-ups, visit the Spooky Halloween House article on her blog.

And here’s some samples of the iPhone HDR photos that I took, both with the built-in HDR capability in the new iPhone camera software and the PRO HDR app that I talked about.

The top two are from the Pro HDR app, and the bottom one was from the built-in feature. All are incredibly crisp given they came from a camera phone. While the foregrounds are a bit dark, that can be fixed in only a few seconds in Lightroom with some fill light:

Voila! It’s a much improved shot, but because of the HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, the sky isn’t blown out. Not bad for a camera phone!
