The folks at Magnolia Greens, where I live, asked if I would make a photograph of their main reception room before and after it was decorated for a wedding reception. Luckily, the weather cooperated with overcast skies.
This is one image made from seven at exposures ranging from 2-seconds to 1/400th of a second. They are merged using the Photoshop HDR engine, saved as a TIFF file and then taken to Lightroom where final editing is completed.
More and more I’m using this technique for images that might have been solely HDR in the past. Why? It’s a real image - there are none of the exaggerated edges normally found in an HDR photo.
Once again I’ve learned to be open minded about the things I do with digital photography. The idea that other people have great ideas and are willing to share them is reinforced nearly every day. I can’t think of another profession where this willingness to share is so profound.
If you are a photographer be proud of that.
If you’re a beginning photographer make that one of your goals.
