If you are in the service area that extends from Seaside FL to New Orleans LA, and you want the absolute best in real estate photography, you really should give me a call. All the buzz in the industry is about HDR photos, so we have jumped on board.

High dynamic range (HDR) images enable photographers to record a greater range of tonal detail than a given camera could capture (6 comments)

virtual tour photographers: HDR Photos vs. Unedited Photos - 10/21/09 08:51 AM
Recently I posted a note regarding an editing process referred to as HDR. I have, up until now, shied away from this process as I felt the end result looked "fake" or "over-worked". I always make it a point to scan the blogosphere for dynamic ideas and trends in real estate photography. Over the past year or so I have seen the demand for these types of images increase dramatically. So below I have shown some examples of minimally edited photos compared to HDR photos. Below that I have included some examples of what I feel, looks WAY over worked. What (7 comments)
