How do you make a HDR photograph?

10 years 2 months ago #120 by Eddy
Anyone have some easy steps on how to take or make a HDR photograph? I've seen a book that showed HDR photos, but nothing was said on how to take or make the photos.

thanks

Eddy

You have to have the appropriate software - there's two out there that I know of. The most popular is Photomatic and there's plug-ins for several major editing software packages. I use Aperture 3 and have a program called 'Hydra' that I use for HDR.

I learned how to do HDR from an online course from Proud Photography. Actually - I have the final photos yet to turn in. I think that if you're fairly competent with your camera and with your editing software you can pickt it up from a video or a written guide.

There's still a lot of practice that needs to go into it - including HDR in B & W photo's.

Thanks - yep it's mine. Took it with a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle. This is a combination of 7 shots from -3 to +3 exposure. I blended this one in Photomatix and then used a plug-in in Aperture 3 to simulate B & W film.
