HDR Photography

Michael ConnellComment

I've been fascinated by HDR photography ever since seeingTrey Ratcliff's work. Basically, you use special software to combine images at different exposures into one image that is a broader dynamic range than the camera sensor can capture in a single exposure. The result is a very vivid picture that can look natural or morphed into a painting-like image. I'm especially fond of the latter. Here's a couple of my first pictures, a train stopped near a manufacturing plant and a piece of farm equipment that I noticed on my way home from the range today. The farm equipment is a more natural rendering and I went for more of a painting effect with the train.
