HDR Study – Ali‘i Kula Lavender

I’ve developed a new habit. I’ve started shooting for HDR just for the heck of it whenever I can, even when I’m after conventional photographs. I mean, why not? It’s just pixels. I am now collecting work for a new HDR portfolio. Here are some from the weekend. I was at the Sustainable Aloha Summer Fest at Ali‘i Kula Lavender, dedicated to Ali‘i Chang, founder, farmer, and visionary who passed on April 13, 2011.

All of the shots are done in HDR. The only difference is in the rendering—realistic vs. artistic. It’s all in the eye of the beholder.

  1. Lavender in Hawaii. That’s wild. Once while a student at UH Manoa, I went up into Manoa Valley looking for indigo gone wild. It had been introduced in the 1840s as a cash crop. I wanted to make a dye. Used a botany book and did find it behind the Safeway. The last time I looked in 2006, it was gone
