Thread: HDR Photos

  1. #1

    Default HDR Photos

    I've been playing around with HDR post-processing lately, and so it was inevitable that I'd go through some of my car show pictures. I thought I'd post a link up here, as several of these shots are from Mustang Week.

    I've processed and tone-mapped each of the shots, then changed the background to black and white. It's always so "busy" around the cars, that the b/w treatment seemed to bring the eye's focus back to the car itself.

    Great pictures. I liked the car in Triad Chevy Club/Greensboro Country Park Car Show 2009 and the car in 2010 Mustangs of Burlington Car Show. They are so cute...

    Cool beans. I'm no good at HDR's but I do my best. What processing programs did you use? I have a camera that I have to manually change the brightness and they never seem to line up. Then I do the HDR in PS2. What do you use to create multiple pictures?

    Most of the HDR stuff I've been doing is multiple exposures. Typically 3 exposures, at -2ev, 0ev, +2ev. For some examples of what I've done with multiple images and HDR, see the following album from Cub Scout Camp with the little one a couple weeks ago.

    However, the automotive shots were all single shot HDR images, as that's all I have of them. I wasn't shooting with HDR in mind when I was at the shows. So I just took the raw files, and then created three copies of each to merge into an HDR. For those, I usually used -1ev, 0ev, +1ev. Not the best way to do HDR, but it's better than nothing, and gave me something to play with.

    I use Canon DPP for processing the raw files into tiff images. Then I use Photomatix Pro to merge into a single HDR. I use Corel Paint Shop Pro for any further editing. Adobe Photoshop is bloated and overpriced IMO, and there's nothing it can do that Paint Shop Pro can't.

    Ah, I've heard about Photomatix. Is that where you make the multiple exposure pictures? I'll have to check out Paint Shop Pro.

    Photomatix allows you to take multiple exposures and blend them into a single image.
