GUIDES, TIPS & MORE

Russian T-34 Tank

Everybody knows that there is a Death Valley in USA, but there also is one in Slovakia. It’s called that because of the WW2 fights done there. There are still few tanks (T-34) scattered around the area which makes it a great place for any photographer :)

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.

Can’t fly anymore

Last week I visited the military museum in Svidnik. They have a lot of WWII machines so I really had a lot of stuff to take photos of :). Not sure what type of plane this is, but the HDR is created from three shots, taken with Canon 450d with Sigma 10-20mm lens, from a tripod.
