How I Shot My Favorite Photo of All Time

Here’s a quick video with some behind the scenes footage and photos from Erawan Falls, Thailand where I shot one of my favorite photos of all time. There’s a lot more to the story than I was able to cram into a three-minute video, but I’ll spare you the details about breaking into a dormitory to find a bed for the night and missing the bus back into town and get right to the point! Enjoy, and please leave some comments or questions for me below!

15 Travel Photos from Oahu, Hawaii

I’ve already posted some panoramic and ProHDR iPhone photos from my recent trip to Hawaii, and now here are some proper travel photos taken with my Canon 5D MKII. While I wasn’t on a hardcore photo mission, it wasn’t very difficult to capture some remarkable images during the week I was in Oahu. Also, a handful of these were taken during my first helicopter ride…an adventure I highly recommend to any traveler. It was an incredible experience!

9 iPhone 5 ProHDR Photos from Oahu, Hawaii

I am a big fan I am of the ProHDR app for iPhone. And if you didn’t already know…now you do. I love this app! The gallery below of ProHDR photos I took in Oahu, Hawaii recently has nine perfect examples of why I love it so much!

If you like these photos, check out my iPhone panoramic photos from Hawaii that I posted last week, then come back often because I also have a few galleries of photos taken with my Canon 5D MKII going up soon.

All photos taken with the ProHDR app on an Apple iPhone 5. The only editing that has been done is the use of iPhone’s “Auto-Enhance” feature, and the use of Photoshop to resize them for the Web.
