HDR and the Nokia N8

By Gavin  Sep, 26, 2011   Posted in HDR Tutorial
GLOBAL – The Nokia N8 packs a punch when it comes to taking amazing photos. That’ll be down to the Carl Zeiss, 12-megapixel camera that’s onboard.

Join us as we create our own HDR images, using HDR Photo Camera from Ovi Store. If you’re even mildly into photography, then it’ll be worth spending the £4.00...

The Nikon D3X DSLR Reviews

By Gavin  May, 29, 2011   Posted in HDR Camera Review
The Nikon D3X DSLR Reviews The Nikon D3X, it is dependable, fast, takes incredible images, and does it all with an eye-popping 24.5 megapixel sensor. Some people will say that is too many megapixels. I ignore those people because I like as many details as possible in my shots. Now, that is too many megapixels for a standard 8×10 print, for example. However, I believe that the future of “looking” at photography will be online. Monitors will continue to get ...

WHAT IS HDR PHOTOGRAPHY?

By Gavin  May, 06, 2011   Posted in HDR Tutorial
HDR is short for High Dynamic Range. It is a post-processing task of taking either one image or a series of images, combining them, and adjusting the contrast ratios to do things that are virtually impossible with a single aperture and shutter speed. An HDR image is commonly made by taking three photos of the same scene, each at different shutter speeds. The result is a bright, medium, and dark photo, based on the amount of light that got...

My first attempts at HDR, or High Dynamic Range pictures

By Gavin  Mar, 02, 2011   Posted in HDR Tutorial
My first attempts at HDR, or High Dynamic Range  pictures These are pictures of my first attempts at HDR, or High Dynamic Range, pictures. A short explanation of HDR is:  In situations of high contrast in light, it can be impossible for your camera to properly expose a bright or dark area in one part of the picture without under or over exposing a different part the picture (the camera sensor has a limited dynamic range for a single shot) HDR addresses this by having you take multiple...

Makes it easy to take HDR shots

By Gavin  Mar, 01, 2011   Posted in HDR photos
Makes it easy to take HDR shots Before I purchased my DSLR, I spent a year with an advanced snap and shoot, the G11. Its a great camera, but there is no AEB( Automatic Exposure Bracketing) which makes it easy to take HDR shots. For those that do not know. HDR combines multiple shots at the same exposure to combine the different textures. The camera has to stay in the same spot for all three shots. This can be more of a task if there is no AEB. This First shot is...

Canon EOS Rebel XSi, EF 50mm f1.8 II, f2.8, ISO100, 50mm, HDR, 5 Exposures When driving into Atlanta from the South, the first item of the skyline noticed is typically the golden dome of the state capitol. The design of the building is very much like other capital buildings in other states, but the golden dome really makes it noticeable, especially when the bright sunshine is making it glow! The Johnny Rockets restaurant sign is also noticeable, especially from the parking lot next to the Atlanta Underground...

HDR Video System Banishes The Darkness

By Gavin  Jan, 27, 2011   Posted in HDR News
HDR Video System Banishes The Darkness High Dynamic Range(HDR) static imagery has been around for a while, but now University of Warwick researchers have developed the first HDR video to capture the “real world”. Sure, sometimes we don’t want to see what the world really looks like, but science and technology gurus have been trying their best for years to get cameras to accurately project what our eyes capture in a glance onto to TV and video screens. So far, they’ve...

What HDR Photography is Not

By Gavin  Jan, 23, 2011   Posted in HDRI
What HDR Photography is Not Photographers have an interesting sense when it comes to perception. For some reasons, some photographers find it amazingly self-fulfilling to really rip into other forms of photography or tools of photography.  In the photography world, it’s HDR Photography that’s been taking a beating for a long time now. However, different styles of photography exist because there are different schools of throught, different applications, and...

Tonemapping vs Toning

By Gavin  Jan, 13, 2011   Posted in HDR Tutorial
Less than a month ago Christian Bloch of HDRLabs.com communicated something to me I’d like to share with all of  you (us HDR nuts).  The nutshell of what he is proposing is that we all start using the term “Toning” vs “Tonemapping” when referring to finessing high dynamic range files (images). I’ve always viewed all of this as a pipeline.   A high dynamic range imaging pipeline which consists of everything from capture to post ...

First learning HDR photography

By Gavin  Nov, 28, 2010   Posted in HDR Tutorial
First learning HDR photography Ok, so here is my first attempt at HDR photography. While messing with my camera’s settings, I discovered how to automatically take three photos at three different exposures at once while in burst mode – so you really don’t even need a tripod if you can keep your hands kinda steady. A fellow photographer friend of mine recommend an HDR program called Photomatix. I downloaded the photomatix and decided to give HDR a whirl....
