Friday's iHDR Flicker Group Favorite: John Trautschold

Starting today, Friday, I will pick a favorite HDR image from my iHDR flickr group, which I started as a showcase for your HDR images. Hey! Join the group and post an HDR image. You might see it here on my blog, too. I am always looking for talented HDR shooters and cool HDR images.

Today's Friday Favorite is: John Trautschold.

Above on the left is another one of John's HDR images. On the right is one of mine. The images have good depth-of-field in common. For max depth-of-field, use a wide-angle lens, shoot at a small aperture (f/16 or so) and focus 1/3 into the scene.

If you want to learn more about HDR photography and have an iPad, check out my latest app: Rick Sammon's iHDR.

P.S. Here's another tip: Shoot through an arch or arches to create a sense of depth in a photograph.
