HDR photo experiment

I have been seeing alot of HDR photography lately on the web and frankly most of it is pretty boring to me. Like a new toy photographers have gotten it is over used as of late. But some HDR can be really great. So I thought I would try my hand at it. I hope I didn’t fall prey to the siren song of HDR. If I start posting lots of these types of images please remind me of this post…

For those of you who don’t know about HDR or what it is. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and it combines multiple exposures into one final photo. I took three photo at Astors in Newport at a wedding a few weeks back and took some time to blend them using the new Photoshop CS5 HDR I like it. Here are two images dark and light that I started from I also took a middle exposure not posted but I think you can get the idea here.

And this is what we ended up with. Let me know what you think?

  1. Wow seth I think it looks great! I havent got to use the new CS5 yet but seeing this I think I will. Looks like it works great for processing HDR.

  2. Absolutely magical, Seth. It is like revising/reworking a piece of visual art or even prose and poetry. You end up with a great work of art.

  3. That’s cool! Love it!
