302. Stuck In Customs

When I saw this photo I immediately thought of Trey Ratcliffe. It was taken in the New York Public Library a couple years ago and the long hallway was perfect for an HDR composite. It really helps bring out the brilliant detailing on the ceilings and those chandeliers look amazing.

I found Trey’s work many years ago at this point and he was a huge influence on why I became a photographer. He has a fantastic website at StuckInCustoms.com where he lays out all the gear you need to start putting together HDR photos as well as a ton of teaching material. I bought my first DSLR based on his recommendations and that’s what I was using when I took this photo.

Tonight’s song is In The Meantime by Spacehog. Every time I hear this song, I am twelve years old again. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of listening to it.
