As the tittle says these images were taken with new a technique, at least for me it is new. I have never done an HDR image before, these are the first two that i tried. For a while i was under the impression that it was just for making cartoons and had little applicable use. Well this past week in Yosemite i listened a lot to RC who went into a bit more detail about HDR’s. It seemed like a good time to play with a couple so that’s what i did. These two spots i thought were intriguing, and i knew by looking at them that the range of light exceeded what could be captured in one shot. The top was at Yosemite Falls and the bottom was at El Capitan Meadow beneath El Cap.
The top is a 5 frame exposure and the bottom is a 7 frame. Neither turned out quite like how i had it in my mind but it was a good start and I’m excited to keep playing with the matter. One thing i did pick up really quickly was it’s faster and takes up a whole lot less hard drive space doing single clicks.
