Climbing to the top of Hong Kong (and an interview on NPR)

    Newer Older

    This is an HDR from a single RAW file! I shot it while on an escalator inside a building... while the escalator was moving! I would have to say that one of the top three questions I get is "How do you make an HDR out of a moving subject?" Well, that is covered in page 3 of the HDR Tutorial here... Maybe some people don't make it to page 3? I don't know. It's easy! :)

    Also, I was recently interviewed on NPR for a the station WUKY. You can listen to the NPR interview here online. Enjoy!

      I think this is the 4th interview of you that I've listen to so far. All have been fascinating, and I've learned something new about you, your family, and HDR in each one. Today was my first attempt at making a "fake" or pseudo HDR image as some call it (you it making a an "HDR from a single RAW file"):

      My favorite HDR of yours "from a single RAW file" was this helicopter shot of your of the Chicago skyline:

      You shot this wide open (f2.8) at 1/8000 of a second, using an ISO of 800, and it is tack sharp. The only noticeable noise is in some of the shadow areas.

    4. Grace Z. 67 months ago | reply Not many people manage to capture Hong Kong so vibrantly. I especially like the way the elevator walls "frame"/break apart the view.

      It's been such a long time since I've been to the city; I miss it. Thank you for posting this.
