The Sun Flows Through Armstrong Hall
This was supposed to be part of a three shot HDR of the atrium on the Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering on the campus of Purdue University. I loved how the reflection gives a perfect mirror on the wall. At the time this photo was made I thought that HDR was the way to go here. That way I could capture all of the light that my camera cannot. I remember liking this photo at the time that it was made, but it didn’t fit my HDR everything mode that I was in at the time. Now with some time behind me I can again appreciate the way that the light streams through the hall without having to see every bit of shadow detail in the shot.
I Swear I Am Not George Lucas
I haven’t been getting out to make many photos lately. That means to keep this photo a day thing going I have to go back into the archives. Lately I have been re-working some of my old HDR work that I butchered back in the day. During my photo 365 project I found HDR. In a way it was bad timing as everything that I was learning went right onto the blog. This blog got off to a great start with my HDR images of pizza, dogs, and even better broccoli. Don’t worry at the moment I don’t have any plans to go back and re-work those photos. I think that they are just fine the way that they are. Sometimes though going back through my old work allows me to find things that had gotten lost in the shuffle. This photo that I made nearly three years ago is one of those.
