Inside The Texas Capitol

Today we are going inside the Capitol of Texas! I made this image while visiting some friends down there last year. While we were there, we had the opportunity to participate in a wine tasting on Twitter. Hundreds of wine lovers gathered on the internet, opened pre-delivered bottles of the same wine, the tweeted about them. I’m not a big wine person, but the folks we were with knew all about it. It was pretty fun.

Photographer’s Notes: This is a 7 image HDR photograph. If you know about HDR photography, you know that people running around while you take your photos is sometimes a problem. You get what we call ‘ghosts’…you can see plenty in this photo. Sometimes you work for hours taking them out. Or, in the case of this image, I thought they were kind of cool so I left them in. What do you think?

After I generated an HDR image, I finished the processing off with a couple simple adjustments in Lightroom 4. Which has quickly become my favorite tool in the Digital Darkroom. Oh yeah…if you didn’t know, I shot it with a fisheye lens. That’s what give it that crazy 180 distortion.

  1. You made the right decision in keeping your ghosts.

  2. Unless they’re distracting, I tend to keep them in.
