Wispy Shilshole Sunset

While shooting the sunset the other night, I tried out the fairly-new HDR capture mode in Lightroom mobile on my iPhone 7. Consider me impressed! The app snaps three photos and merges them together right there, creating a DNG (Adobe’s “digital negative” format) with lots of image information for editing. I’m generally wary of in-camera HDR processing, because with most cameras you end up with just a JPEG that doesn’t give you as much editing capability later.

The initial shot looked great, and I tweaked it slightly, also in Lightroom mobile on my iPhone. In fact, the only time the image went beyond the phone was when I checked it using the large screen of my MacBook Pro; since I saved the capture to a synced collection, the photo was waiting for me in Lightroom.

Shilshole Evening

After many days of rain, this weekend the sun reappeared and presented an opportunity for me to shoot a sunset. I also had some camera testing to do (more on that later), so I grabbed a coffee and headed down to Shilshole Marina for some sailboats and sky photography. The temperature dropped quickly once the sun dipped, turning my flat white to an iced coffee, but it turned out to be a nice evening out. This is an HDR made in Lightroom from three brackets.
