HDR Wedding Photo of Groomsmen

HDR (high dynamic range) photography is one of those things many photographers have strong opinions about.  I don’t mess with it too often but it is fin to play with from time to time.  For editing software I use Photomatix. It’s great processing software that gives the user a ton of controls.  To read more about HDR photography check out this great HDR tutorial on Trey Ratcliff’s blog.

As a wedding photographer I don’t fiddle with HDR too much, I do like to play with it more for my personal photography and landscapes.  I don’t usually dig HDR for people, take the iPhone 4 HDR for example…it’s a great feature for practically everything except skin tones.  I think people look like Oompa Loompa’s with the iPhone 4 HDR.

This image is one of the exceptions, I think HDR works well for the Groom and his buds front lit walking in to the sun and I managed not to fry the skin tones with the conversion.
