Dade City, FL, HDR Photography

A few months ago I photographed Dade City – the same small Florida town where I encountered an unexpected parade that I posted about. I returned shortly thereafter with my photography phriend Paula Showen, whom I’ve mentioned before. That day she taught me how to photograph for the HDR technique. I’ve mentioned that before, too, in my last post about Florida Polytechnic’s IST building and the Airstream Ranch.

Therefore, this post is actually more about the photographic HDR process than Dade City, but I’m including some interesting history of the place sprinkled in. read more

(FYI: In the same post last week I also described the HDR digital photo process that gives photos a marvelous depth and interest. I used that process for the photo of the IST above.)ist calatrava read more
