HDR photography with calligraphy
September 24, 2010 Leave a comment
During those rare periods when I’m not involved with calligraphy, I enjoy taking photographs and manipulating them using Photoshop or Photomatix Pro software.
I recently captured the Edinburgh skyline from high on Calton Hill, and created an HDR image from the photograph using Photomatix. I then experimented by hand-lettering an Edinburgh-related quotation and incorporating it into the image, making use of the empty section of sky at top right. The result is shown above. It may not be to everyone’s taste, but the creative process was fun (and that, I believe, is what’s important!).

I own an excellent book on the subject … “A World in HDR”, by Trey Ratcliff of Stuck in Customs. Find out more about the book here.
