WW: Say Hello to Deno Kontoulas

Have you had the privilege of meeting Deno Kontoulas of 48 Layers Photography? If not, you're in luck. Today I'm sharing a sampling of his beautiful, unique work. His specialty is HDR imagery- not an easy one to master.

He says, "After years of editing photos for other people, I decided it was time to take some of my own. Completely self-taught in Photoshop, and now photography, I've managed to capture a few images that I like, and hopefully you will also. In the gallery you will find some of my favorites including: landscapes, architecture, people, nature, and HDR."

His blog has his favorite photos, the best HDR tutorial links, and a list of equipment he uses. You can also find him on facebook or at his website.

48 Layers Photography has a beautiful gallery of eye candy, all of which are available for purchase. Definitely worth a stop. You may even want to add him to your google reader. Deno has only been blogging for just a short while, but as you can see his work is top notch and certainly inspiring. It's so much fun connecting with fellow photogs around the world in this little blog of mine.

  3. Wow, oh wow! That first picture doesn't even look real and I love the HDR effect on the second one. I have an HDR function on my iPhone that I'd love to try out but I don't have any software to amalgamate the two photos. Really cool effect!

  47. Alicia, I don't know why I try, I can never ever produce the kind of photography that makes me literally gasp like your photography does. So so so so pretty.
