Moment of Clarity

The City Beautiful
Abi Bell, a photographer from the Florida Keys, was visiting friends in Orlando last summer when she headed off to The Mall at Millenia. The mall was open very early for people who, like Bell, wanted to purchase the latest iPhone. “After I bought my phone, I realized the mall was so empty,” she says. “It was really surreal to be in a mall when it was so quiet.” Using a technique called High Dynamic Range, Bell combined multiple images taken from the same spot to achieve an unusual clarity of both the mall’s interior and the sky seen through the windows. “It’s really how your eye sees things,” she explains, “but a camera is usually incapable of capturing it in just one exposure.”
