A photo of Downtown by Kagan that uses HDRI techniques

Kagan often uses the technique of High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) to capture high contrast scenes. This is a relatively new technique that gives pictures more pronounced range of values between white and black; in other words, highlights are brighter and shadows are darker while retaining detail.

His photographs were on display at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater's Textillery Gallery in 2007, from June 1st through June 29th.
