International HDR Day

by on Jun.26, 2010, under Photography

June 26th has been declared “International HDR Day” by well-known HDR photographers Rick Sammon and Trey Ratcliff so, in the spirit of the celebration, I had to take an HDR shot today and post it on all 3 of the sites I post photos to (here, Flickr and my photoblog).

This rather odd shot was taken at the Barsana Dham Hindu temple in Austin. The boys and I headed over there this morning to pick peaches in their orchard and took a wander around the temple afterwards. I didn’t have a lot of time since we were all thirsty after our fruit picking but got one image that I feel is worthy of posting.

If you haven’t tried shooting HDR and like “arty pictures,” give it a shot. It’s really pretty straighforward to do and you’ll have a lot of fun playing with the enormous number of possible variations you can create with each picture. You’ll find my HDR tutorial over on the photoblog and, if you prefer hands-on instruction, I’ll be giving another offering of my HDR workshop on a Saturday in either September or October this year.

By the way, in case anyone clicks through to the “About” page on DPExperience, I’m not that Dave Wilson. I appear to have an evil twin on Rick Sammon’s staff 🙂
