A project I started in Oceanside. This project involves me giving people a penny and in exchange they give me a quote.I always look for new methods to improve my photography and creativity.
I have seen many HDR images and portraits, and a few HDR portraits, so I decided to try it myself. My main issue was finding models to participate in this project, so in order to accommodate for this, I have decided to turn it into a personal project which I have also incorporated into my website.
This project (Penny Project as I call it) involves me giving a penny to a person, and in exchange I take their picture and they give me a quote. These quotes involve an anecdote of their daily life, an inspirational quote, or something random from their day. While shooting these images I carry a portable flash and umbrella and attempt to capture as much sunset as possible as well as having well lit-portraits of people.
These images are then post processed in Photo-matix Pro and are given an HDR effect. The combination of these create image are given a artsy type feel due to the effects of HDR processing.
