I had my camera with me today so I took a few pictures of the building I’ve been working on before I left. These are actually handheld HDR pictures. If you’re new to the concept of HDR, or high dynamic range photography, be sure to check out Trey Ratcliff’s tutorials on how to do it right. He is definitely the best photographer to learn HDR from. Basically though, you shoot multiple pictures, some underexposed, some overexposed, and one just right, then combine them in software to get an image that shows detail in the dark and light areas both. Ideally HDR is shot from a tripod, but I gave it a try handheld anyway to see how it would work. They’re just a little soft but still turned out pretty neat.
What do you think?
