It’s been a while since I posted a HDR image – mostly because I haven’t been shooting them. Some people hate the effect, some love the results. I find it’s usually pretty polarized within a few groups “photographers” and everyone else. See – photographers themselves are always polarized – which camera company, bag, lens, flash, modifier, windows or apple etc. etc. So entering a debate on how the final image is actually achieved is a sure-way to bring up debate.
Non photographers, largely, love it. They’re colourful, textured, surreal and sometimes painterly. These images can be re-interpreted by the artist a number of ways – so it’s not like all HDR’s are created equal.
Last night I went out with the intention of shooting some HDR images of my Hintonburg neighbourhood. I haven’t seen many of the hood, despite there being many “photogs” lurking around. Even moreso, there’s a huge group of “urbanites” lurking, waiting for some artistic interpretations of their neighbourhood. I hope to explore this in a series over the coming days, weeks and months.
If you’d like to see anything in particular, or want to come take some bracketed shots, or even want to diss the whole process –
