People have been asking me where I learned HDR. It's all hands-on, but you can check out a few of these links to help you get started

Architectural photo features ornate cloisters at Gloucester Cathedral, UK. You may be wondering why there is a huge green rock sat inside these cloisters. Well so did I when I arrived. It was all part of an art exhibition being held at the cathedral. It was surreal and at the same time wonderful to see art sculptures scattered around in all sorts of different locations. However, in this particular shot I think it was in the way, but I didn't want to clone it out simply because of it's unusualness. Hopefully I will return again to get a 'clean' shot, but then again they will probably have a different exhibition on!!

 

Many thanks to those who favourite and comment on my photography!

A trickier shot than I thought, as shooting in to the sun made it impossible to get a good dynamic range even with several exposures. Anyway I played with gradient maps for the very first time, and introduced vignetting at the edges.

 

Once again apologies to my contacts far being so far behind with comments, I have felt so ill this week, but a a kind doctor at our local hospital and my sister seem to have me sorted and "I'm definitely on the mend"

This photo sort of sat around in my archives, just begging to be processed. It required special handling due to the dynamic range involved, but never had the time to do it justice.

 

I was out for the rise of the full moon, and shot several different scenes at that time. The moon was now fully in the sky, and still not blocked by the clouds that would do so later.

Last weekends effort saw way too much cloud and no light, this weekend saw a cloudless sky and harsh light resulting in the sort of dynamic range that irritates me. You just can't win can you!!

 

Well at least it's different and goes someway in searching for the Nornen shot I want to be satisfied with. I like the light, at least it gave some colour, but I would have loved some cloud forms.

My technique is alway the same:

Three exposure -2EV, 0, +2EV and then temperature adjustement using Lightroom and layering with luminosity mask using photoshop. Removal of distracting stuff with the stamp tool or patch tool. High pass filter to enhance details. Then saturation, contrast selectively control, dodge and burn where need...

DRI stand for Dynamic Range Increase. Three RAW files are used to achieve this. Rather than using a software like Photomatix for instance, I simply use mask to blend, my own way, the light, dark and normal shot with Photoshop and Lightroom.. To me, It looks more natural than the usual HDR treatment that I would normally applied.

Ma technique est toujours la même:

Trois prise de vue -2EV, 0, +2EV. Ensuite ajustement de la température de couleur avec Lightroom et usage de calque et masques de luminosités avec Photoshop. Retrait d'éléments de distraction avec l'outil tampon. Filtre High pass pour le rehaussement des détails. Ensuite saturation et contraste ajustés de façon sélective et locale. Dodge and burn là où requis...

DRI vient de l'anglais Dynmic Range Increase, qui pourrait se traduire par étendue dynamique améliorée. Les même 3 fichiers RAW entrent dans la composition d'un DRI. Plutôt que de se servir d'un logiciel comme Photomatix qui fait tout le travail, je me sers plutôt de masques pour filtrer l'éclairage dans photoshop et Lightroom. De mon point de vue, cette façon de faire donne une image plus naturel que le traitement HDR que j'employais auparavant.

A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL THE INVITATIONS

 

BUT PLEASE ...

Don' t force me to add comments, fave pictures, tag my picture with the group id or read the rules when I add my pictures to the pools. I hate when admins remove my pictures after I got invited and after posting to the groups. That's silly and makes me so mad.

 

So please, invite me only to groups that are not strict. I like to comment and fave pictures in my own time and my own discretion.

 

Add the TAGS for me, please. If that's one of the requirements.

 

Thank you.

It's been rather a long time since my last upload. Various computer problems have been frustrating my processing for the past few weeks, but they seem to be sorted now and I've begun wading through the photo backlog which accrued in that time.

 

This image is one I've been itching to process and is my favourite I've taken for a long while. I took a number of frames of this same spot as the pebbles rolled around in the breaking waves with the low sun glinting from the peaks of water. I will process more of them and feel they might work well as a series of images demonstrating the dynamic nature of the strip of beach right at the waters' edge. For now though here's my pick of the bunch.

Lengthy HDR Workshop Review

First, I should make it clear that I don't have any more plans to do more workshops. I know there is a lot of demand all over the world -- and these two previous ones have been ultra-successful. I may end up doing a few exclusive workshops in select cities around the world, but nothing is currently planned. I get approached all the time for this and that - and I'm looking at everything... but nothing is decided yet.

 

For sure, you should get ready for the HDR DVD to come out. It's being worked on currently. It will be ready when it's ready, but you can sign up there to be sure you find out first.

 

As for the Florida weekend workshop, Terry Reinert wrote a lengthy review on his blog. He was a nice guy, and I enjoyed meeting him. After the workshop, RC Concepcion asked Terry and Vanelli (his site) to take me out to shoot the sunset. Well, it was probably a top 10 sunset. It was one of those perfect sunsets where the sun was twice as wide as the skyscrapers in downtown Tampa. Even better, it was a perfect half-circle on top of a cloud.

 

The only bad thing is that we were in a car the entire time. I'm not sure what the heck happened, but I am sure what the heck didn't happen. I had a chance to get the greatest photo of Tampa ever made, but I was stuck in a car. I have not yet ruled out conspiracy.

 

After that, Vanelli, Terry, and I ended up at Tampa University. Or maybe it's the University of Tampa. We moved around there and they used a few of the new tricks from the workshop. I got some great shots that I haven't had time to process yet... But I was happy to hang out with those two guys. RC tends to be a good filter on these sorts of matters!

  

Daily Photo - The Portofino Bay

Today, I drove to Orlando and decided to put myself in charge of a sunset shot. Of course, it worked out well.

 

We stayed here at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando. This place is gorgeous. I never know how I feel about these "recreations" of other real-world places. The REAL Portofino is very pretty and unique, of course, but this recreation is also really nice. I mean, it's actually pretty here, even though it is just a facsimile. It's not the same as being in Italy, of course. But, it's better than being at a Walmart in Ft. Lauderdale, you know? Okay, it's a WHOLE lot better. There are six Italian restaurants, a pretty boat that takes you back and forth to Universal Studios and Adventure Island, and a very nice staff that is helpful and attentive.

Central, Hong Kong

 

Having seen many renditions of this scene on the internet, I already had eyes on this photo before I embarked on this trip.

 

However, heaven was not on my side. Ever since I touched down, the weather had been cold and misty, nevertheless I headed out onto the streets and found my way there. Braving the wind chill while jogging on the spot to keep myself warm, it took me almost an hour to shoot this set of images, as I exposed for the last few frames, it started to drizzle.

 

I got a few curious stares but it did not bother me at all. In fact I felt very at home amidst the impromptu exercise regime. Such was a wonderful experience.

Ma technique est toujours la même:

Trois prise de vue -2EV, 0, +2EV. Ensuite ajustement de la température de couleur avec Lightroom et usage de calque et masques de luminosités avec Photoshop. Retrait d'éléments de distraction avec l'outil tampon. Filtre High pass pour le rehaussement des détails. Ensuite saturation et contraste ajustés de façon sélective et locale. Dodge and burn là où requis...

DRI vient de l'anglais Dynmic Range Increase, qui pourrait se traduire par étendue dynamique améliorée. Les même 3 fichiers RAW entrent dans la composition d'un DRI. Plutôt que de se servir d'un logiciel comme Photomatix qui fait tout le travail, je me sers plutôt de masques pour filtrer l'éclairage dans photoshop et Lightroom. De mon point de vue, cette façon de faire donne une image plus naturel que le traitement HDR que j'employais auparavant.

My technique is alway the same:

Three exposure -2EV, 0, +2EV and then adjustement using Lightroom and layering using photoshop.

DRI stand for Dynamic Range Increase. Three RAW files are used to achieve this. Rather than using a software like Photomatix for instance, I simply use mask to blend, my own way, the light, dark and normal shot with Photoshop and Lightroom.. To me, It looks more natural than the usual HDR treatment that I would normally applied.

 

I alway like the potential of that image but was very disapointed because of the blur that wind cause over my len... Until I realised the full potential of the HIGH PASS tool in photosop! And why not add a touch of light painting here and there and a better crop (an other!) that will better serve that image and makes his creator happy!

J'ai toujours aimé le potentiel de cet image, mais déçu par le flou qu'à causé le vent sur mon objectif... Jusqu'à ce que je me rende compte de l'efficacité de l'outil HIGH PASS de photoshop! Et tant qu'à y être, pourquoi pas un peu de light painting ici et là et un meilleur cadrage (un autre!) qui rendra justice à cet image et rendra son créateur heureux!

Right at the end of rather a long walk along a concrete path is this little gem. I was unsure if it really was a lighthouse (lack of a big bit of crystal at the top was my main query) but it is, apparently. It's a nice bit of the world and a lovely coastline with cliffs etc. I was lucky I caught the clouds when I did, too, as a blue sky (nice but pretty boring) almost immediately followed.

Went down to South Queensferry last week just as the sun was setting and it was absolutely beautiful. I took about five long exposure pics but sadly they all had defects of one sort or another. This (fairly subtle) HDR was all I managed to get, on the way back from the beach. Sometimes you just have to be satisfied with what you've got...

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get some private access to the top of Tower Bridge. How I got this access is another story but I had unrestricted views all over London with no a tourist in site. I didn’t know that I was getting a personal tour of the walkways. I turned up there just expecting to be escorted to the place I needed to take photos but a guide directed me all around the walkways.

 

During this access, I was able to go out onto the balconies at the very top of both the north and south tower. This offered unrestricted views over the city of London that I wouldn’t have dreamed of getting. Of course I made the most of it and I don’t think my camera stopped clicking when I was up there. It just so happened that the only time I could be up there was at sunset. Not a problem for me!! I was sorted.

 

In this image you can see the view that I got from a balcony on the north tower looking over to the Tower of London. You can see how the skyline has changed over the years with the brand new Walkie Talkie, Cheesegrater and Gherkin (insert another kitchen reference here) all in the background. London is one amazing city.

I think it is some sort of bromeliad? It was growing in my Mother-in-law's garden and it was quite small (approx 10 high and 5cm wide?) Any suggestion on what it could be? I just thought the colours were amazing ;)

 

It has been Explored! [Highest Position: 134 on Wednesday 20 June] Thanks everyone!

This is another photograph from this massive church on the south side of Milwaukee. The entire building is delicately detailed and ornate. it's a blast for me, given that I love to process these sorts of shots. but framing them is another story. I've gotten more familiar with framing them using live view to try to get them properly centered, but even so, it's so difficult with a wide angle lens and all that distortion on the edges. either way, I think it's easy to appreciate all of the work that goes in to this amazing church, regardless of faith.

on a separate note, I thought it was awesome to see the similarities, and down right identical nature to European churches, in this case, a beautiful image from Conor MacNeill (www.flickr.com/photos/thefella/5862834356/).

This historic and colorful Carousel is at Baltimore, Maryland's Inner Harbor.

Thanks for all the new followers that joined me today. My cavalcade of waterfalls continues. I have one more before I move on to something else.

 

I rediscovered this photo while sorting through photos from past National Park trips. I enjoyed my time at Mystic Falls in a different way than I enjoyed Yellowstone Canyon and Grand Prismatic. I hadn't planned on seeing it. On this day, I was out for sunrise when it began to pour rain. By mid-afternoon there was a bit of a break. I had spent the morning in my cabin looking at the park map looking for things near Old Faithful (where my cabin was) that I could do if the rain let up and found this. It is a very easy hike with this great payoff.

 

This picture is composed of 5 images merged to HDR in Photomatix Pro.

This small pillbox, designed for one heavy machine gun, still retains its original protective embankment.

As soon as construction work was finished outer walls were covered with tar to prevent moisture from eroding the concrete. The black smudges are still clearly visible. Once it dried, stones were piled up against the walls and covered with sand/earth to form embankments providing additional protection against direct artillery hits.

 

This one was processed 50% with OnOne Perfect Photo Suite and 50% with NIK Color Efex Pro. Pulled froma single RAW with ACDSee Pro 8 (a sort of Lightroom in case you wonder, but WAY faster. Some dynamic contrast added selectively + some vignette blur, these done in Perfect Effects module. Then squeezed through a preset which I developed in NIK Color Efex Pro - for a kind of smooth look I was after.

As I was leaving a network of jagged roads through some mountains at the end of a fjord, I emerged out into this Icelandic fertile crescent of sorts. There were tiny farms all over the countryside and they looked very nice while the sun was setting, so I grabbed this shot to remember it!

One evening I was walking around Roppongi, taking in all the sights. There doesn't seem to be a bad direction to go. Everything was alive and full of life.

 

Getting into this particular position took a few Cirque de Soliel moves that no one was around to appreciate (or warn me against). There is a pedestrian set of stairs that blindly switchbacks its way up an outside drum-tower of sorts. I had a feeling that on top of this little tower would be a good vantage in this particular direction, which I had not seen, but I had mapped out in my brain. I did one of those moves like children do when they work their way up a doorframe -- but I did it in a narrow stairwell. It got me to the top, which was extra-difficult with the tripod! I ended up with a clean view of everything. But then, only then, did I start to wonder how the heck I was going to get back down.

 

I waited for a nice-looking stair-walker to pass by underneath, and then I handed down my camera before performing an unceremonious jump/fall.

After deciding not to wait in the over 5 hour queue to get in Battersea Power Station we decided to get some shots from outside.

 

This is my first long exposure attempt and it took a lot of work to get used to it. To give you some back ground I first of all had to remove many dust spots in Photoshop. After this I Tone mapped the image using 5 exposures to help bring out some of the detail that was missing. After processing the 5 exposures I had yet more dust spots to deal with. The next step was to sort out the colour cast issue. This took some time and fiddling around until it looked a little more natural. As the weather was very overcast on the day of the shoot there was little definition in the sky so I combated this with an ND grad filter plugin on Colour Efex pro. Once i had settled on the look I cropped to remove an unsightly tree that had crept in to the top right hand corner.

 

I'm pretty pleased with final result but was wondering if there is anything that any of you might have done differently that will help me for next time??

It has been a while since I last shot the lightshow.

 

Near or far, the city still looks as spectacular as ever.

This is now the second time I have had my Cameras out in three weeks.

 

I’ve been wanting to do this shot for ages but once I got there, I didn’t know what sort of shot to do. I took a lot of different angles and decided on this one. I also decided to do a HDR. The reason for this is that HDR (High Dynamic Range) brings out a lot more detail but as you can see, I haven’t gone over the top with it. Hope you enjoy it.

Ma technique est toujours la même:

Trois prise de vue -2EV, 0, +2EV. Ensuite ajustement avec Lightroom et usage de calque et masque avec Photoshop.

DRI vient de l'anglais Dynmic Range Increase, qui pourrait se traduire par étendue dynamique améliorée. Les même 3 fichiers RAW entrent dans la composition d'un DRI. Plutôt que de se servir d'un logiciel comme Photomatix qui fait tout le travail, je me sers plutôt de masques pour filtrer l'éclairage dans photoshop et Lightroom. De mon point de vue, cette façon de faire donne une image plus naturel que le traitement HDR que j'employais auparavant.

This exact location was a little path not too far from the city center. I was unable to pinpoint exactly with the GPS, but if you show this photo to any local, they can point you in the right way with a nice Japanese-gesture.

 

The little train that carried me into Hakone started winding through misty mountains. The trees were thick and a fog was rolling in. I had a feeling that it would stay wet, moody, and fairly perfect. It had that heaviness that made you feel like it would remain like that for a few days, and it did.

 

Before I get on train rides, I have a wonderful but dangerous habit of loading up with pastries. Train stations seem to have nice little selections of all sorts of foreign twists on the usual subjects. And, since I consider myself an explorer, I thought it would be good to get a TON of pastries and try them all. It's very nice... sitting there... looking out the train window at a new land... rain falling... eating pastries... (and I'm only a little ashamed to say that, upon arrival, my pastry bag was empty.)

Fast changing light as the sun rises on a snow-covered landscape. Light floods through the gateway to give the snow an orange tinged glow. Even 2 pallets stopping a hole in the fence can look good on a morning like this! Keeping the snow nice and white is difficult with a large dynamic range and the camera trying to do all sorts of things with the white balance.

Taken on a very cold and breezy October morning 2012.

 

This is a digitally blended image using elements from 5 of 9 manual exposures ranging from 0.5 secs to 120 seconds at f5.6 .

 

Many masks and layers were used to bring in the appropriate parts of the other images in order to ensure I had a full dynamic range in the image (within self-imposed artistic boundaries).

 

Overall I guess I must have spent 2 to 3 hours on this image over the course of 2 to 3 days.

 

One of the lessons I have learned ove the time I have been doing this sort of thing (12 months) is not to rush to publish. So many times I have produced an image and rushed to upload only to discover at some later stage that actually it is not really as good as I thought it was at the time I was processing it.
