Over the past 6 weeks I have been taking a photography class at the Showcase School here in Atlanta. We had to choose a project for the class and I decided to document some of the bodies of water in and around Atlanta. A few examples that I photographed are the Chattahoochee River, Nancy Creek, Lake Clara Meer, the Pond in Atlantic Station, and the Chastain Park Pond. Here are some of the photographs from my project:

This has been a fun week for me and photography. For weeks I’ve been reading and studying up on HDR. It is a whole other world that certainly has a life of it’s own. I started out at a site called Stuck in Customs written by a sick photographer named Trey Ratcliff. If you haven’t been to his site, go there now…then follow him on Google+. He has a great tutorial on his site that will serve as a launching pad, and apparently has been doing so for quite some time.
I’ve been practicing taking the shots and processing them with the Photomatix software trial for a few weeks. I haven’t been blown away with the results of any of the shots which was frustrating. Just the other day I came across SNS-HDR which is a program out of Poland. Enter Google Translator. I was really pleased with how this program processed the images and especially my real estate photography. That is a whole other topic I won’t get into, but end of story, I really like the way SNS processes the images and the interface is easy to work with. So for this week I took a picture of something that is super yellow and has a cool design to go along with it. I ran it through SNS and here you go:
