One of Utah’s biggest tourist attractions is Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City. Since I work in Salt Lake City, I drive by the Salt Lake Temple almost daily. I have often sought to photograph the temple in an effort to capture its beauty, and maybe even have one that looks good enough to frame for my house.
HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography is something that I would like to get into a little more. While I like how the temple looks in this photo, I often wonder how much better it could look if I used some HDR techniques with it.
I captured this photo one morning in March 2010 following a meeting at the neighboring Joseph Smith Memorial Building. At the time, I thought it was a great photo. But how much better would it have looked if I had the HDR skills to add to it? My goal in the next month is to learn more about HDR photography and photo-processing, so as I move down this road, I will be sure to share.
If you have tips on processing the photos in Photoshop CS5, send me the link so I can check it out – I’ll be sure to share the results. Thanks.
