It's always nice to have some great shots of your current workstation, but we have to say that we were surprised to see people use HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography to show off their latest gear and workstations. High Dynamic Range photos have all these colors and have a dream-like quality to them.
While HDR photos aren't that easy to take, they do give some interesting results, especially when you photograph things without expecting much. HDR photos usually combine different exposure shots into one composite photo, thanks to bracketing which can be used on DSLR and some pro-sumer cameras.
Most of these photos were taken by HDR enthusiasts who tried to see what would happen if they took a photo of their setup. Strangely enough, even if some shots are cluttered, they do look interesting. All in all, if you want to showcase your workstation and want to set it apart, taking an HDR photo of it would be a good thing to do.
The latest version of Adobe Photoshop (CS5) and Photomatix are two great tools to let you take your own HDR photos.
