After the Opera

It was a perfect, although slightly cool, evening as everyone was streaming out of the theater. It seemed like the sort of thing that someone should be taking a picture of… so I am glad I was there to do it!

    Hi – this is great!

    Would you mind telling us the type of lens you used here?

    Thank you so much,

    He used some sort of wide angle probably about 10-12mm focal length.

    But, it is the technique that gives it that look, it is called HDR or high dynamic range photography. A technique in which multiple exposures taken (usually three or more) and merged in a computer program to create one picture.

    A technique which is often overdone ie. picture poster IMHO.

    It may look “cool” and “interesting”, but strip it away and it is just a regular picture.

    HDR is fun to try, but is most often a crutch to turn mediocre pictures into something to catch non photographers eyes.

    It can be done well, but most often is not.

    Also you can get an idea of a photographer’s talent by seeing how often they use a technique such as HDR; if it’s all they do then…. just hope for them to move on from it.

    ^ this guy is just jealous. Don’t judge things based on how innovative or revolutionary the technique is: judge it based on whether you like it or not. If you don’t like it, you don’t need to look at it or post a comment that is insulting.

  • hehe no prob… thanks yall… no worries! 🙂

    This was a 10mm lens.
