I’ll keep my Austin run just for another day or so as I had a few nice shots form my quick visit. During my visit to downtown I met with fellow Austinite & HDR photographer – Trey Ratcliff. Trey has some amazing work you must check out! I’d put him #1 in my book as far as HDR photographers go!
Before I met with Trey, I had an hour to take take some Capitol Building shots. I played around outside for about 30 minutes with my IR camera (it was already 92 degrees and hot!). So to cool off I wandered inside and took a few traditional shots inside the building. I wanted something different and asked the guard if there was an open room with seating to visit. He told me about the House of Representatives in the North Wing! I took a quick walk and wandered into this great room! It would be wonderful to sit in a session one day! As I sat there, all I could think about was the history and what went on here years past.
I set up my tripod and took this shot with 5 exposures and a cable release. I thought the wood and leather chairs would make a solid HDR. I post processed with Photomatix and just a little extra was needed in photoshop! It was time to head out – Meeting Adjourned!
