HDR the Right Way?

Today was the day for my HDR workshop here at the California Photo Fest. We had tons of fun making HDR images, as opposed to simply taking HDR images.

For example, both of the cars in these photographs were carefully moved into position for the shots. Originally, the were parked facing in the opposite direction.

When I first ventured into the world of HDR, I met someone who said that he teaches HDR "the right way." Well, I feel that there really is no "right way"when it comes to HDR. The end-result is up the individual photographer. For example, the top image is a realistic HDR image; the bottom image in a artistic HDR image.

So when it comes to HDR, follow your heart.

Explore the light,
Rick
