This photo is from Brussels, Belgium at the Grand Place. It was around 8 PM…dinner time for the Europeans and I was walking around taking lots of HDR’s. I have processed a few from this day and I like the colors and the people sitting on the curb in this shot. I am lucky though! If the people were a little closer – zombieville! A friend of mine Phil sent me a link a few weeks back of a photographer that used HDR for wedding portraits. I thought that was an amazing idea. I looked at the site. Luckily the bride and groom are a good distance away from the camera, so they are not affected too much by the HDR effect. Its an idea to try in the future. A family portrait in HDR? Maybe? I’d have to try a few shots and see what is an acceptable the working distance betweeen the lens and person. I think it will take practice! Or a little photoshop help?
I’d like to branch out my skills in HDR one day soon. I am planning to rent the Nikon 10.5 Fisheye Lens on a trip soon. I’ll post some shots hopefully by August 1st. I’m also trying to think of different subjects…we have an old car show here in Texas in September – now that will be fun! If the lens works out well…it would be fun to have then! Enjoy!
