Lighting Lesson

badlands hdr hillFriends, Practicing my hdr technique, this image was composited from three exposures, one right on and one overexposed and one underexposed.  The sky was trying to wash out and the shadows on the right trees were getting lost in the dark.  So hdr was used to reclaim those details.  When I first explored the world of photography, I was told to put the sun at my back and shoot, but this often results in a flat image with details obscured. While attending a workshop on butterfly photography, the leader emphasized that the wing details can be enhanced by side lighting, This hill is a great example of side lighting bringing out the erosion details. So are you going to try??, til Tomorrow MJ
