Going AWOL

Posted by Ryan Anderson

Loyal readers, I’m going to be scarce for the next few weeks. I just had a major work setback, courtesy of Microsoft word and my own failure to backup a key file. So, I’ll be frantically working to make up for all the work I just lost. In the meantime, it’s probably going to be quiet here unless there’s something I just can’t not post about.

I promised some photos of Carlsbad Caverns from Day 3 of the field trip, so here you go.While I was in the caves, I played around with a technique called high dynamic range, in which you take several shots of the same scene, but with different exposures, and then combine them later to bring out details in the dark and light areas. Here are some examples for you to enjoy. See you on the other side…

Another HDR composite.

One more HDR. This is actually from our lunch stop on Day 2, but it ended up looking pretty cool, so I decided to share.
