You can be forgiven if you don’t quite get what you are seeing at first in these photos. Photowalks are opportunities for me to work on new techniques and styles – and I took full advantage of that in the last set from this walk. The first five photos are all High Dynamic Range (HDR) and posterized at different levels depending on the subject. “Food Porn” is just HDR.
Posterization is a technique I have been working with for a while in my jazz photos, but this is the first time I have used it extensively for a series of outdoor scenics. I like working with it because it gives a “painterly” or watercolor aspect to the images and gives me a lot of latitude to decide the level of abstraction I want to use. It seems a bit counter-intuitive to be doing both HDR and posterization – but it gives me a wide range of possibilities for the final presentation.
So – I need to get out and walk again!
