HDR comes in a lot of different ways. This was an app on my iPhone 4S called Pro HDR with some tweaks afterwards.

You can get a good portrait anywhere with a bit of imagination.  Here I'm shooting on a very overcast day with flat light. I used the cinder block wall of a school and a shallow DOF to get rid of the distractions.

This was a wedding I shot a few years back and I took a image, flipped it to B/W and then I used CS5's bristle brushes along with blenders to make it a "painting".  It took a few hours and blends the photograph with digital painting. It also allowed me to "loose" a window on the right side that was lighting the bride's face but was distracting since it was so bright.

So you think you need new gear, better gear or some widget to make art?  Watch this and hang your head in shame. Get off the stick and use what you got to the best of your ability then STRETCH your abilities and watch what happens.

People say to me all the time that the iPhone is not a real camera and people using it cannot be real photographers. So  Hal must not be a real artist since he is using MS Paint from Windows 95.  To those people, I say bullshit..I'm an artist and I prove it everyday by using the abilities and tools I have in my hands.
