HDR: KK International Airport

I got this long urge to test out HDR using the bracketing setting from the camera. I admit that this is not a perfect interesting HDR compare to available in the internet. The only problem i find in is the photo look too saturated color. Must be the cloudy condition that make the sky look like a soft box effect. I just need to find out what the problem is and do more experimental shot and photo touch up.

The photo was touch up and color corrected. The default will not look nice. I didn’t write how to do HDR because most of the information available in there internet and for you all to search it. This HDR look so normal as taken one shot photos but in reality, it hard to be able to cover a dark and light area in a single shot even with a high bit dslr. With a multiple exposure shot, a wider range of dynamic exposure is possible and at the same time with low end dslr camera.

1/6000 -2

1/400 —

1/100 +2

I just want to point out that most of the camera setting in the DSLR meant to be so useful in getting some effect without ever heavily applying the photo shop effect layers. For example, with bracket and right exposure setting to the camera and continuous 3 fps shutte capture, one no need to use a troublesome useful static tripod. Thou, one have to make sure the light is good enough before taking a free hand photo and if in low light, the troublesome but useful tripod is necessary.

  1. Nice shot, but ditch the commentary on how you did the HDR!! Leave that for how-to pages. Your photo doesn’t look over saturated, but a little pinkish red to me. Could be your monitor boosting the colors? I have a monitor at home that’s great for movies and web surfing, but terrible for photo editing. It boosts saturation and vibrancy something crazy.

    Keep up the HDR though! Another solution is to shoot RAW and do multiple exposures off of of that! I find that works the best for shooting hand held


  2. thanks andy.. yup.. that the problem when all of the user have different monitor setting. i don’t really like to use tripod because i don’t have a good tripod and most time i prefer freedom when handling my camera. thou, tripod is important when dealing with low light or long exposure shot. i guess i need to find a more contrast day such as sun set and sun rise to be able to get more details in the HDR photo. yes, RAW and do multiple exposure is ideal way to do HDR but i don’t need to do a multiple exposure, i can get the same effect with multiple layers in photoshop. now i found out D300 nikon can take 5 different exposure bracket and i wonder how it going to look like. at the moment, i stuck with my d70s setting. i better explore all the setting first before i change into more higher and expensive dslr.
