Through time our photo styles change. We like to try different methods and looks. I usually do not shoot the grungy urban style, but very much enjoy these shots. I was watching the Photovision DVD #184 and the portrait photographer Travis Gugelman had a family doing an urban session downtown at Buffalo Billiards in Austin. Not indoor or out front…in the back alley! I loved the shots! I had to take lunch yesterday to scope it out! Not only for a future portrait session of my own, but also it looked like a great spot for an HDR.
I shot the urban style and it was just about noon and the sun was bright. I took the HDR anyway just to see how the overall look would be and if I should take it again on a cloudy day or near dusk time. I processed it and enjoyed it! Some of the noon-ish shadows were cool. So an urban HDR during the day! I can bet a normal HDR with the right conditions will be great…so look for it soon! But in the meantime…something a little different. Enjoy! See my notes below…9 exposures on this HDR!
