Not my usual HDR, but this just called for it. Without the multiple exposures the sky was just white and there wasn’t the detail in the trees I wanted. Besides, regardless of what you will see in the next few posts, I do really like natural looking HDR. Sometimes overdone HDR is just, well, overdone.
I had the opportunity to go to Rochester, New York and hang out for a week and do nothing except photograph and work on my software. I never did work on any software. I did manage to get some pretty awesome HDR/URBEX photographs and I will be posting some of them over the next few weeks as I finish processing them. I thought I’d start out with the Rochester postings with this simple photography of the Kodak building and the couple in the park. Don’t worry though – I have plenty of URBEX HDR over-processed photos coming your way. For a teaser, here is a list of upcoming subjects I’m pretty excited about:
- Cool buildings in downtown Rochester
- Mount Hope Cemetery
- Some ‘dodgy’ industrial buildings (I couldn’t get into them though)
- The Rochester abandoned subway / Erie canal
- George Eastman House
- And if I can figure out how to process them well, some HDR of Niagara Falls
Not necessarily in that order.
I’ve been “off-line” for a while and haven’t posted here (been missing twitter too). I’m going to try to get back on my normal Monday, Wednesday, Friday posting schedule.
