Guy Hawkins


Retired finance professional. I love taking pictures, and I have three different cameras I use.... Nikon D7100, Nikon D700, and Fujifilm X100s. I typically shoot in RAW format (often with a tripod) and often bracket at least three different exposures for later HDR processing.... I've pretty much abandoned Photomatix Pro, for I cannot seem to eliminate the halo-ing and I've never liked how PP processes green foliage. I'll sometimes use Aurora, but my typical workflow is LR5, then Photoshop Elements19, and often NIK Collection. If noise is a problem, I'll resort to Topaz 6 Denoise. I just have fun, and like to hear from others who also enjoy photography; doubt I'll ever win any contests or presidential awards, but then that's not what I'm trying to do.
