This is my first attempt at an HDR (high dynamic range) photograph. High Dynamic Range is acheived by shooting multiple exposures. Example, this image was made from combining 5 images together. Each image the exposure is set at a different light value; underexposed to overexposed. Then the images are combined and what you should end up with is an image with wonderful light and dark values. But, like anything, it takes practice.
Late this afternoon the clouds were so beautiful I thought I’d give it a shot. With the wind howling (high wind warnings in our area) and temperatures in the mid 30′s I grabbed the tri-pod and camera and took off. I went just around the corner from my house. The same location I shot the barn on Day 30 and the same place I shot the tree/snow/fog on Day 35.
I set up quickly; snapped what I needed and came home. Between the wind blowing and me shivering I don’t think the tri-pod was too steady.
To see some amazing HDR work Google Trey Ratcliff, John Adams, Domingo Leiva or Asmunder Thorkelsson.
