Not long ago I started a new photo processing technique called exposure fusion. I merge bracketed exposures together in a software program called Photomatix Pro. It takes the best exposed parts of each shot and merges them together. It is not to be confused with HDR which is a high dynamic range image, Exposure fusion is still a low dynamic range image, but merges the best exposed areas of each image together into one image maintaining better detail in both highlight and shadow areas. It is much more natural looking than the HDR which can have a very cartoonish appearance. The technique really brings out the detail and vibrancy within the images. The photos below are examples of many of the photos that I have processed with this technique, I have mostly used the technique in my landscape photos with little urban, but that will change soon

Nature and landscape photographer from Denver metro, Colorado. I also do extensive urban and night time photography. I originally started photography as a means to document my climbs of Colorado's many high mountain peaks, then it evolved from there. The biggest thing about landscape photography is being in nature and capturing those short lived and sublime moments that occur. There is nothing quite like being at a mountain lake feeling that cold mountain air, looking up at those dramatic peaks and spires, or being up late at night looking up at the incredible amount of stars visible from the Earth, something that very few people are able to experience any more this is the true source of my inspiration. I have had several gallery showings including with the Denver Photo Art Gallery owned by renowned nature photographer John Fielder, and a two week exhibit during the Democratic National Convention. I currently have 2 books out in collaboration with other people, plus working on a 3rd one about Loveland Pass region, this last one is still an ongoing project. Plus I have been published from other sources including Smith Southwestern and am a regular contributor in stock with Shutterstock and Dreamstime. I have had large scale corporate sales and numerous individual sales of my photos. This includes numerous photos with the Plenary Group and photos in the home of a well known actor
