The Texas State Capitol is where I typically take my HDR workshop students for the practical part of the class. It’s an ideal location – great access, plenty of cool things to photograph, interiors and exteriors, and some truly tricky high dynamic range scenes to capture. The interior of the Senate Chamber is a great place to teach about wide bracketing since the windows are open and the view through them is so much brighter than the interior lighting that you absolutely have to bracket wider than your camera’s automatic modes will allow.
I’ve photographed in here many, many times but on the last class, I was inspired by (copied from?) some of the students who saw new angles that I had missed on all my previous visits. This is one of those angles and I credit Dan Slutsky for coming up with this picture idea first. Thanks, Dan!
