Over the last couple of years, I’ve subscribed to the RSS feeds of a number of local folks on Flickr who share some great photography. How I find them initially seems pure serendipity. Sometimes they post one or two photos in a local group – sometimes I just stumble upon their work. If they’re interesting, I add their Flickr RSS feed to my Flickr folder in Google Reader. Inevitably, their work helps me to learn more about photography and stimulates me to visit some new local locations – it’s very rewarding.
It was another bright sunny January early afternoon today – following a clear, crisp night last night with temps early this morning in the mid-30’s and frost on the deck!
HDR – Fully Processed
After (seemingly!) playing endlessly with Twitter and FriendFeed this morning, I decided to leave the computer behind and to head outdoors to do some more mid-day, bright sun, high dynamic range (HDR) photography. For me, HDR is perfect for mid-day, high contrast sun/shadow photography – just the opposite of that special early morning / early evening soft light that photographers otherwise learn to love.
This time, I wanted to stay close to home and minimize the travel time. Stanford University is always an option – it’s literally just around the corner and is where I started my HDR exploits in early September 2008. There’s a world of photo opportunities still waiting for me there at Stanford. But, been there, done that! I was looking for new adventures today!
