High Dynamic Range (HDR)
February 10, 2012 Leave a comment
Yesterday the group was instructed to go out and take some images around hull which would be suitable for HDRing.
My image was captured in Cafe Nero, I decided to shoot one image in Raw format and from that produce 3 images. One a stop under exposed, one what the camera metered and another a stop over exposed. I did this because there are people in my image and if they have moved in any of the 3 shots I would have had to have taken to do it properly, it would have spoilt the process.
These are the three exposed I got from my one Raw file (-1, 0, +1):
With these 3 exposures, I created a HDR image using photoshops merge to HDR function.
The above image is what I managed to generate using the HDR function which is rather ghastly (as are most HDR images which aren’t subtle)
I decided it might look better in black and white so I used Photoshop’s channel mixer to put a black and white with yellow filter.
I think this is a much nicer image to look at.
