HDR Biten AGAIN!!

Last night I went to the Photoshop User Group meeting at CDIA that Chris Alvanas hosted on HDR. I knew I had seen his work before, and after a little research this morning I found it in Nikon World Magazine. The PUG meeting was a 2 hour discussion on technique where Chris walked the group through his workflow and how he has achieved the best results for his work. Chris does lean a bit on the more illustrative type of HDR shots, but for effect. If you have followed my blog, you know I do like this effect. I did learn a new technique from him on using three layers with different blend modes that I will share another time, after I perfect. In the meantime go a check out his site. His HDR work is under the Edge menu.

Tomorrows forecast in DC, Partly cloudy and 59 degrees - I am going to grab my tripod and camera and get over to the Washington National Cathedral for some HDR inspiration. Dan? You up for it?

Cool HDR! This sculpture made me laugh - I haven't seen an eraser like that for years.

Thanks for sharing the link. Chris's work is incredible! I like his 'edge' style and his 'kids' gallery is really wonderful too.

Oh boy, do I ever look forward to seeing your results from the National Cathedral - one of my favorite DC sights.........

I'll have to be with you in spirit. Cub Scout Blue and Gold coming up on Friday. I'm the slideshow guy and MC. A little backed up. I know....excuses, excuses. Let's aim for another local next week. I'm in.

Great HDR Mike, and Chris's stuff is ace also. Its definately an art to get HDR right I think (I'm way off), and this one looks great.
