This Rollerblade photo was taken in Boerum Hill. In the street garden area on Hoyt Street.
I am really enjoying this small garden area. I stumbled upon this place in late August. There were a number of great subjects:
And as you know — finding a great subject is a photographers dream. It makes the work of taking good photos much easier. I feel extremely fortunate that I found so many things to photograph, here.
This particular photo is a multi-exposure shot. Specifically 3 photos — which are merged together into one photo. This process is known as High Dynamic Range (or HDR). It’s simply a style of photography. HDR is used in certain situations to bring out all the incredible detail in an image.
In this case you can clearly see the incredible detail of the blade:
- several scratches
- several scuff marks
- caked on mud
- rust on the buckle
- the groves on the heel break
