I’m a bit of photo purist. I never really got into the whole HDR thing. But the more I think about it, the more it interest’s me as a photographer. It’s almost like having ISO1600 and ISO60 chilling together on the same roll of film, just waiting around to be of use whenever they can.
So after a sailing trip got cut short this afternoon due to excessive wind, I made a handful of HDR images.
Nothing much, but pretty fun given how easy they are to shoot and produce.
All you do is set AEB (auto exposure braketing) to shoot +2 0 -2, then import the three exposures into a program called Photomatix.
It gives you some sliders to slide and you’re done.
I probably didn’t slide my sliders around just right. So far I’ve been tending towards making the photos look more realistic, but I may get away from that in the future.
