Reflections At Tower Life | And Some News!

A few updates I would like to share with everyone:

First off I would like to thank Trey Ratcliff as well as everyone over at HDR Spotting for giving me the opportunity to partake in their new website. I got an email last night inviting me into their collection of astonishing HDR artist and feel very honored for the invite.

In other news I got a my new storefront up over at Imagekind which offers up most of my images here on Flickr to be bought as prints as well as canvas. They also do custom framing as well as Museum Wrap and Gallery Wrap for those canvas prints if you select that you would rather have that then a frame. So go ahead and take a look and let me know what you think 🙂

One other pice of info is that Adobe rolled out the free beta of Lightroom 3 which has many cool new features. One of which is to upload your images straight from LR to Flickr which I thought was a pretty cool feature. To view a hand full of updates to the new LR head over to the NAPP site which has a few videos showing off some of the new features.

This particular HDR image is of the Tower Life building here in downtown San Antonio, Texas. Took a while to find the spot but after taking a look at some maps and GPS I was healthy to see that it wasn’t to far from UTSA… I’m horrible with finding places on my own but I can work wonders with the map off MSN.com.

Oh and I nearly forgot… MY BIRTHDAY IS IN ONE DAY. I’m turning 22 on the 24th!!!

12 exposure HDR merged in Photomatix and tweaked a tiny bit in Photoshop.

To learn how I process my HDR’s I have a tutorial up as well as a PDF in it’s description so you can print it out.

Captain Kimo visited the Miami Metro Zoo Friday for the first time ever! What a place. I didn’t know what I was missing out on until now. The awesome thing about the Miami Metro Zoo is that there are no fences so taking pictures of the animals wasn’t restricted by anything obscuring the view. The installation itself was larger than I expected, so massive I didn’t have time to finish viewing the entire facility. Which was fine since it started to rain anyways.

But before it rained I had a chance to photograph this Silverback Gorilla. This huge guy was my main neutral when I got to the zoo. I zoomed passed the rest of the animals only stopping briefly to snap a few shots. When I got to the huge guy’s territory I only waited 20 minutes before he walked to the surround and did posing session for me.

I took a bunch of exposures of this Silverback. I also had it on AEB for some HDRing but Mr. Gorilla didn’t want to stay still for one second. So trying to do a 3 exposure HDR was impossible. When I got home and saw my exposures single exposure HDR was the only way to go. So I took this single RAW file and tone mapped it using Photomatix. The final pseudo HDR didn’t look bad at all. I added textures to give it more of a artistic and at the same time it took away the concrete surround in the background.
