Week 6- Tony, HDR at High Noon

HDRs are meant for sunrise/sunsets times when the lighting is superb. I highly recommend checking out other HDRs, they are dream scapeish . This was an experiment and a challenge. Mitch and I were hiking in the Catskills this weekend and came across tis bridge and falls. This is a series of 9 shots all at different exposures. The photos are what they are at high noon, but it is interesting to see what the eye really sees in these photos.

Week 6- Ben MacMaster

"A different HDR attempt, composite of the same DNG, just different exposures in camera raw."

Week 6- Tyler

So I'll admit to half assing this one. I wanted to shoot it under 95 by me in Philly, where there would be all types of tones, but I was out of the city for most of the week. In fact I have been on the road way too much, so to show that, I shot a rest stop in Connecticut I was passing around noon. It of course didn't come out that amazing, but I guess the point of HDR is that the image should actually look like real life, and not a Harry Potter ad. The point of shooting it around noon was to make it hard to make it interesting, since the severe lack of shadows would defeat the point of HDR, and it worked.


Week 6- Paul Paoletti

thats my caption."

Hey everyone,
As some of you have probably noticed, we are pretty bad at actually posting our updates for Monday. To take care of this, Tony and I have decided to make the post day Tuesday. So please keep coming back to check out the photos and comment. We now have a total of four people involved and the photos should only get better!

Thanks for checking us out.

Week 5 - Paul Paoletti

"Self Edit" - sometimes we need to edit out the rough drafts to get to that final image of ourselves.. shit thats deep


Week 5 -I'm Back

So I obviously conceded last week to Tony. Unfortunately it was a rough/busy week for me and I never got anything that I was happy with, let alone willing to show in public. But I'm back for this week, and Tony actually unknowingly gave me an idea when we talked last week, I figured I'd work the 360 pano into this weeks assignment. So sorry for dropping the ball, but I'm back.

Also, this week starts the inclusion of Paul and Ben in the Dueling. So its technically no longer a duel, but oh well, it seems the more the better.

My gun's drawn, where are you?

So I guess Tyler isn't showing up for his own duel??

Week 4. 360 Vert Pano

Well this was a bit of an unusual thing to do. Anyway you rotate the image, it stays kinda awesomely weird. I would be anxious to see this printed the super large format that it is and put it on a arched ceiling, then it would work. Anyway, try and take it all in even though its kind of a small sample pic. Start at the bottom and look up and over. Enjoy

Late this week.

Tyler and I are both running behind on this week and will have pics up asap. In the meantime, the new theme is up and we have 2 new people joining the duel. So look forward to 4 photos instead of 2. I'm stoked are you...?

Week 3

Rifreakindiculous. This night was intents just like camping. As Tyler said we went to Kevins prom themed 4th of July party. Besides who wants to see the same old pictures of fireworks, or a parade? Instead, I give you a slightly trashy formal Bull Fight. Be sure to check Tyler and my facebooks soon. Ill also post some of the other artsy fartsy pics on my other blog. See you next week.

Week 3

I can't believe how fast these posts come up! Either way I'm kicking this week off early because I'll be at work all day tomorrow. This week's theme was "4th of July Party Photos." Unfortunately Tony and I went to a very unconventionally themed 4th of July Party. Fortunately the party was prom themed and amazing! The photos are absolutely awesome and there will be a plethora posted on Facebook for sure over the next week, but for now here is my best party shot.
