HDR in Helsinki: Empty Station

by admin on Jun 8, 2012

I like when popular places in the core are empty. Central Railway station, for example, looks magnificent (and a little spooky) when there are no people. But it’s not empty often. I was thinking for a long time to go there at the best possible time. And turned out that Tuesday evening half past eleven was that time. Why? The last subway comes at that time. Slightly after, the gates to this part of the station are closed. Right before this, before the people walk up from the last subway, there’s nobody there. And this is when I striked. Very empty moment. Just four people sitting on the benches.

The scene was good for HDR photography as well. HDR doesn’t favor people since they are usually moving. And because HDR is about combining many photos to one, moving objects can be troublesome to the processing. Not it was without people so there were no problems in the processing.
