My own for night HDR shooting:

Steps/things needed for night HDR

1. a sturdy tripod (I usually shoot handheld during the day, if there's enough light to get fast shutter speeds)


2. a remote release to get exposures longer than 30 seconds (any will work but if it doesn't have a timer on it bring a stopwatch or something to measure exposure time)


3. turn off VR/IS (for tripod work in general)


4. adjust shutter speed manually, because you'll need to go longer than 30 seconds. Every EV step the time is doubled or halved. [if the reg normal exposure is 10 sec, then +1 is 20, +2 is 40, +3 is 80... and the same the other way, -1 is 5, -2 is 2.5, -3 is 1.25....]


5. with night shots I always make sure I have more than enough over and under exposed shots, I've learned you need to almost over do it, go really wide with it to make it work well. Then don't be afraid to really mess with it in photoshop to dial it in right.


6. try to avoid headlights directly hitting the lens, if you sit there for 2 or 3 min long exposures and next to a busy street you'll have a ton of flare and it will be unusable (I've learned this the hard way) I was doing a shot once and it was a quiet street but there was a bend in the road right next to me and when cars came around the corner the lights would shine right into the lens, so I would watch and listen for cars when the shutter was open and block the light with my shadow as the cars came. I'm glad there were not many!


7. bring a jacket and warm things, maybe a flashlight if your gonna be hiking. You'll be there for a while.

I agree with cammyjams...Artie has it all going, his subjects are absolutely stunning , as is his processing skill. He credits his skill to this man Erroba who is no slouch with the odd HDR either , www.flickr.com/photos/erroba/

I made this for a friend of mine that are just starting HDR, and postprocessing in general... I didn't plan to spread that on flickr, I guess I would have put more effort in it then, but Kulu40 and some others in the HDR group made me do it... =)

enzeth.wordpress.com/2010/01/10/hdr-processing/

Here is my walk-through of the HDR and post-processing steps I took to make a image... (It's my friends image, the guy I actually wrote it for... go to his blog and make a lot of hits at the end... yes? :P)
