Austin, TX – Capitol Building (HDR)

A few of our local Austin HDR Mafia guys got together for a small photowalk recently as our new friend Todd Landry was in town and wanted to go out shooting in Austin. Most of us had shot nearly everything in downtown Austin, so the challenge was to find something new. I scratched my head and looked all around and took a few shots. Not sure if they would be different? That is def a challenge for any photographer bored with their local area. Push yourself to find that new pic! This was different and maybe cool? We had a great time shooting in 103 degree weather this nite! Some of the great photogs on the walk (links below)…nice to meet you Todd! If anyone is ever in Austin, give me a jingle…maybe we can meet up!

  1. I totally get the challenge of shooting in very familiar territory. Getting in closer or finding patterns is a great way to “see” things differently. The processing really pulled out the pattern and the texture within the pattern, Peter.

    That is original, Pete! I have a few more shots from that evening that I need to process. I’ll likely post them next week some time.
