David is a lonely man living on the streets of DC, he told me so. So naturally, I take the high road and tell David that I’ve got a nice blonde girl for him to meet. Remember Cindy, see a few posts ago for Cindy’s picture. I think they would make a nice couple. David is smart, a little shy and best of all sober. Cindy is gentle, caring and very chatty. Now I just have to get David to the other side of town for them to meet. I see a reality TV show in the making.
When shooting around the monument I met Peter Lerman and his friend Cindy. He’s a local Virgina musician that was putting together a video for his latest song “Abraham.” He picked the right place to do the video. At first they tried to scoot out of camera view and I asked them to “stay in the picture, I’d love to get some clicks of you.”
If you want to check out the song he’s on Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/peterlerman
Jerry Hayes of flickr asks: “Hey Ferrell, how many exposures and what spacing did you use… if you don’t mind me asking.”
HDR was made for scenes like this. It’s high contrast; a single image was not even close to capturing the full dynamic range. The anti-HDR photographers would have never been able to pull this one off. The single image would either be loaded with noise inside or blown outside.
This was 7 images at 1ev spacing and that was comfortably within the DR of the scene.
Jerry has some pretty cool HDR work at his flickr site, also some LucisArt. Jerry is a printer and a self-professed “big kid”: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jerryhayesaustin/
