I've recently become interested in HDR photography. It's pretty amazing, really, the difference that it makes in the pictures that one can take. What is HDR photography? Well, I don't really know how to explain it that well, but I do have a link. Click here. It's a little long, but explains what HDR is really well.
So, anyway, I decided to try it out, see what I could do with it. Don't read too much into the subject matter. I just wanted a subject that had a lot of contrast.
What the picture normally looks like, touched up just a little on my computer, with the program I normally use for my photographs.
Now here is the same shot, but taken in HDR. Now, I've messed with the levels a little to make it come off a little more surreal that it might normally, but all the detail and color comes from the HDR aspect.
Pretty nifty, eh? I like it, and I want to do some more. Maybe, if you're lucky, I'll share.
I tend to discover new things about myself in the books I read, the music to which I listen, and the movies and tv shows I watch. I'm going to discuss these discoveries here. I may occasionally deviate from this plan, but that's my choice, right?
