Today. West of the Chicago Loop during Blue Hour.
Today. Howdy from Laguna Beach, CA. This is Chicago from the Riverwalk.
Today. Last night, I spent some time preparing the photos that I will be posting in the coming days since I will be out of town. I was kind of on a roll, meaning I was getting a lot done without having to spend to much time on each one. After having enough photos lined up to cover the long weekend, I decided to give the shot below a try, and I couldn't be happier with how it came out. Although HDR photography relies on similar composition and photographic principles as traditional photography, I would make the argument that with HDR photography, it is a lot more difficult to tell, and often surprising, which shots will "work" and which won't. I was pleasantly surprised to find that today's shot seemed to work well for me.
I discovered these two characters at North Ave. Beach, and although it looks like they are mid-high five right now, I am pretty sure they are actually debating politics.
I will be in Laguna Beach, CA from this Friday to Monday, if anyone has suggestions on places that I need to shoot, please let me know!
Today. Oak Street Beachstro. This shot was taken with my friend Bob Voors.
Today. A long exposure shot taken near North Ave Beach. Yesterday, I mentioned that my shot was inspired by Brian Matiash, well today's shot was inspired by Justin Kern from theWindyPixel.com. Justin's favorite spot to shoot in the city is here just north of North Ave. Beach.
Today. Today's shot is inspired by some of Brian Matiash's work. Brian does a lot of tilt-shift urbex photography, and it is awesome! This is pseudo tilt-shift, with the effect being applied in post.
Today. A railroad track from West Loop looking downtown.
