I’ve decided to start another weekly series that will feature some of my favorite HDR (high dynamic range) photos of beach bars. For those of you that don’t know, Wikipedia describes HDR as “a set of techniques used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than possible using standard digital imaging or photographic techniques.”
People either love or hate HDR processing – I’m a big fan of it. The process gives photos that extra “pop” that makes them stand out and if used with the right photo, can turn a simple picture into a work of art.
Beach bars are an excellent choice for HDR photography. In most cases, they contain the textures, colors and patterns that HDR can really highlight and take to another level.
The first photo is of a beach bar in Zandvoort, The Netherlands. In this case, HDR didn’t “over amplify” anything but simply allowed the camera to capture detail it normally wouldn’t have been able to.
I hope you like the series and let me know what you think!
