The Grand Central Station

    Newer Older

    For Artists and Photographers that want to follow another path

    I am going to mention this tomorrow during the workshop with Scott Bourne, but I get inspiration and ideas from a great variety of sources outside of photography. Unfortunately, I find that photographers stay in the bubble too much and keep reading the same sort of thing. I put together "Trey's Book List" here on the site for you. It's filled with all types of subject matter from genetics to physics. For example, if I ever run into a fellow artist that also has a passion for Richard Feynman, we always become fast friends!

    Another Nice Testimonial for HDR Spotting
    I am glad some more people are getting into the private beta of www.hdrspotting.com/ - as always, the goal of the site is to showcase interesting HDRs from all over the world to drive more traffic and attention to YOUR website. It's built on top of something we call an "Attention Generation Engine". As we tweak all this out and iterate, we hope to open it up to more and more people!

    There are invite codes out there - just ask around on Twitter or look in the HDR groups in Flickr or FB -- NOTE - I do not give them out - so sorry I can't help you (by design!).

    Here is a nice testimonial from Gaensler (see his latest amazing shot on Flickr)

    "Since uploading my images on HDR Spotting the attention I get on my work increases tremendous! This encourages me to upload one image every single day, which is a great challenge due to the matter of only sending my best images. So HDR Spotting is pushing me further in my work and the comments I get from the community refuels my creativity!"

    Daily Photo - Grand Central Station
    When I was in NYC a few weeks ago for the book party, I took some time one rainy evening to invade Grand Central Station without a tripod pass. I did not even know I could get such a thing easily, because the process for picking one up requires looking in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard'. (tip of the hat to the great Douglas Adams).

    But even with my illegal tripod in hand, and in cool and casual defiance of the three-legged police, I strode around Grand Central Station taking photos with reckless aplomb. I really wanted to get on a train and go somewhere! But, I didn't... I just walked out the exit and right into another amazing photographic situation!

      It's actually called Grand Central Terminal. Grand Central Station is a post office.

      Trey,

      If you don't have Feynman's book "Genius", you should get it. It's a great book about Feynman himself.

      really good use of HDR and possibly at the edge of looking overdone, but it works overall
