Then I went to a free photography lecture by Trey Ratcliff that just blew my mind. His photographs were almost intensely and painfully beautiful. Here's his website. He makes HDR pictures which I've heard about but never tried. But so inspired, I went home and found Uchi and made him pose. So here's my first HDR picture. Basically, HDR is where you take a picture in multiple exposures and merge them together. I'm still learning, so I think my HDR picture doesn't do the technique justice. But I'm so proud of myself for just diving in and making one.
It kinda sucks. But getting Uchi to stay still and not having a tripod and also not really knowing what I was doing...
One of the 3 non-HDR shots I took. This was the medium exposure.
But man, I just went into a zone. I love it when I do that.
