Skies on Fire-Maui Photographer

Published On: August 29, 2015


Back in the day of using Hasseblads to photograph weddings, portraits, and all I use to use a “graduated filter” to pull my skies down to make them look dramatic.  Now days Photoshop can make these dramatic corrections, but there is always a trade off.  Why do I bother to bring this up… well the other day I was reading an article on the use of graduated filters when capturing digital images.  Inspired, I decide to dig thru my old gear and adapt an old trusted filter to my current gear.  Weather wise, Maui has had a few near misses of major storms this summer (two more on the way they say) which have blessed us with some amazing sunsets.  This was the other evenings sunset which lasted about 30 minutes.  I hope you enjoy images:
