I have GOT to try this
i've always wondered if auto exposure bracketing would cover enough range to do that. I should try.
so uh, how'd that hdr stuff work out for you? there are some amazing hdrs out there that chromasia has done, you should check em out if you've not already.
im in a computer lab can someone host a raw file for me to play with?
I'm finally gonna try this. Anyone play with this at all?
i've shot some HDR night shots.
any tips for fixing this image up in HDR? I have it in RAW; I know its crap but it was for a class interview of a local business owner and I couldnt really photog out on them given the circumstances:
..i think you are missing the point of HDR.
With HDR you take several photos exposed differently, and combine them. It allows you to match the light & detail on subject & background more evenly.
1) people rarely stand still enough for multiple exposures
2) there isnt any real difference between them & the background, if anything the background is a little distracting but you may be able to fix that.
but with raw cant i create different exposures?
you can adjust the exposure - which should be enough.
You are missing point 2 that he made..there isn't a dynamic enough range of lighting in that picture to see any HDR benifit. (read: it is exposed pretty good for detail in both the highlights and shadows.)
A picture with a sky or something with bright parts + heavy shadowing is usually a good canidate for a HDR.
here's a quick one. Don't mind the extreme amounts of dust on the sensor, I've already cleaned it.
This was done with Photomatix and then used the tonemapping plugin. Single RAW image, adjusted the exposure comp manually in RawShooter Premium
didn't think it was too bad for a first try
OMFG that is a lot of dust.
Not a broad enough exposure...you really need to bracket that picture. Which might be tough with the waves.
I'm going to try this... Shiva you have any results to post?
Everything looks good on that picture until you get to the clouds and sky.. i agree with eof though.
yeah, the sky leaves a little to be desired. Again, I'm sure its due to the fact that this was a single RAW shot, not bracketed. This was an after-the-fact HDR, I did not shoot it with the intention of turning it to HDR, was before I even knew of HDR
I'll work on it some more
