Another Sunday in Iceland

    Newer Older

    If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!

    This is a really nice little church by a graveyard in the south of Iceland. It was pretty much out in the middle of nowhere, as you can tell. The gate with the cross on the top leads to a tiny and lonely graveyard. Graveyards are always interesting and macabre places for photography, and the mood changes dramatically depending on the time of day. I notice there are a few things that are "Mood Amplifiers" in photos. These are items to include in your photo to take whatever mood is being conveyed to the next order of magnitude. These include: graveyards, churches, dogs, pretty women, miniature horses, and blood. I've been trying to think of a way to include all of these elements into a single mind-blowing photo, but a clear path has yet to present itself.
