Day 1/365 - It's cold outside

Went to pick up some work at the studio today, some Star Wars bedding project to follow up my previous ones before the holidays. Decided to drop by B&H to grab some white satin umbrellas for my lights on the way home, so I can start testing light setup. Somehow I ended up with a Sigma 50mm EX DG Macro, I'm so going to get yelled at.


Anyway, this is my first 365 shot! Hi everyone!~


pp info: 1 original, 3expo HDR, 2 layer dragan.


light: 1 umbrella far camera left, 1 umbrella low camera right

    I would like to hear more about your project. I checked your profile, but I didn't see anything. Is there somewhere I can read about why or what your point is?
  • Tom Lin 6y

    Oh that was just me ranting something about work. Nothing important :)

    Tom, I really REALLY like this effect and was wondering if you could provide some insight on how to take this. I read up on HDR but don't understand how to take 3 exposures of a person (with flash) and not having the person move at all...
  • Tom Lin 5y

    it's auto bracketing. almost all camera bodies have it, even some higher end point and shoots. set your exposure range and it'll snap 3 really quickly at the range you require.

    I use photomatrix for initial HDR blend then off to ps/lr for pp
