I have to say that I’m really enjoying the online HDR community I’m becoming a part of. I never thought I would have this much fun. Not only is photography addicting, but the social networking is almost just as addictive. Showing your images to other. Looking at everyone’s images… getting inspiration from so many people is definitely sparking my creative side. I just wanted to say thank you. First, I found James Brandon. His blog is probably why I got started in the first place. He’s an awesome photographer. Then, I found Trey Ratcliff. Wow. His images are insane! He has an awesome tutorial at Stuck In Customs. Next, and probably the most helpful, has been Scott Frederick. He has taken the time to look at my stuff and given me advice on becoming a better HDR photographer. I should also throw a thanks out to Jacques Gudé. You know when you have those light-bulb moments? Well, when watching his HDR tutorial, something just clicked. I’m not saying that I’m very good at HDR, but I think I can be confident in the direction that I’m heading. Finally, I need to thank Christopher Wray. Christopher gave me access to HDR Spotting and I’m REALLY looking forward to interact with others in a whole new way. Thanks guys.
Sorry about all the thanks, but I enjoy this so much! It’s hard to describe. Actually, maybe it’s not. Those of you who are actually reading this and not just looking at the pretty pictures probably do understand. I love taking pictures and I love processing them. So, thank you for feeding my passion! Now, to the picture.
On my lunch a couple days ago, I decided to fire off a few brackets inside Helena’s Cathedral. The Cathedral was built in 1850-51. It’s so beautiful, and as such, makes it a perfect place to shoot. I hope you enjoy this shot as much as I enjoyed taking it and processing it. This one took my awhile…. a long while. But, I wanted to make it as perfect as I could. So, without further ado, here it is:
Again, sorry about not posting the tutorial for today. I should be back to normal on Friday. Also, I submitted this on HDR Spotting. Cheers!
