My inspiration: Trey Ratcliff. This guy is awesome, not just as a photographer but also as a human. He likes to SHARE* his photos, his techniques and his HDR secrets. After spending countless of hours on his website (www.stuckincustoms.com) and trying to understand his philosophy and technique to take/make HDR images, I thought I would start trying my own.
Hopefully, someday, I would be able to capture as stunning photos as Trey does.
This one is at Hiranya Narayan Temple, near Thapathali Kathmandu. I took three exposures, hand held, as I don’t have any tripod (yet). Processed in Photomatix and then edited the tonemapped one in Photoshop.
*Here in Nepal, I know several so called “photographers” who never really like to ‘SHARE’ their technique or tips. They look down on new young guys doing it (and making it) and they frown a lot. Plus, usually on their photos, one will see big semi-transparent “copyright” and they will leave “All Rights Reserved” blah blah notes below the photos. Funny people.
