So this blog is not just about my photos i will try to add from time to time a HDR tip which i came across while creating my own HDRs. So here is the first one:
HDR tip #1:
Problem: Sometimes when I take my bracketed photos in a hurry it can happen that the darkest photo (usually -2 EV) still has some overexposed areas or the lightest photo (+2 EV) has some very dark areas.
Solution: This helps quite often. Just take the darkest photo into any RAW editor (Camera RAW, Lightroom…) and underexpose it by an additional 1 or 2 EV, same with the lightest photo and overexpose it by 1 or 2 EV. Save the results to separate files and when creating a HDR image, just include the new files with the taken photographs. Like this you will have 5 available exposures instead of 3.
This works as RAW files have more information than you can see, but this usually doesn’t work with JPG files. Hope this helps someone :). If there are any questions just leave me a comment.
In a dark place
I usually take photos of landscapes and architecture, so it’s nice to have something else. HDR from three shots, taken with canon 450d with Sigma 10-20mm lens from a tripos.
