Black and White HDR Photography with a Lensbaby


A while back I had the idea of combining several of the latest technologies at my disposal to create a unique photograph.  The title photograph in this post is the result.  It combines HDR photography, a Lensbaby, and processing the photograph in black and white.  Any one of these approaches standing on their own is common place.  If you were to Google any one of these, you would get millions of results.  However, using HDR for b/w photography is not as common as color photography, and applying HDR to Lensbaby photography is even more rare.

While I am confident that plenty of people have combined the three elements, it is not a regular practice.  So here you go – an example of a unique combination of technology in photography.  The point of this exercise is to demonstrate just one of the endless combinations we have at our disposal to express our creativity.  There remains countless other possibilities for us to experiment with photography and our creativity. 

If you ever feel you are hitting a rut, just explore.

Have fun and go make some great photography.
