So I attempted to tackle HDRâ€™s. For those that donâ€™t know, High Dynamic Range photos are processed photos that take 2 or more separate exposures merged into one â€œSuper exposedâ€ image. If done right, you are able to produce a photo that has a wider range of details in both the shadows and the highlight areas…. And some would say it produces an image thats beyond what we can see at one time. Most cameras are usually limited to a narrow dynamic range, but by taking 3 separate exposures, you can expand that range when you process it with HDR software.
So Iâ€™ve been seeing HDRâ€™s on flickr, and other places and put off trying it myself until now. This portrait is my very first attempt. Itâ€™s â€œinterestingâ€, but I donâ€™t think iâ€™ve really pushed the possibilities very far. Iâ€™m a tad disappointed actually with my results because I took far more exposures and alternate portraits, but I ran into a problem with lining up the subject. Essentially, I didnâ€™t pay close enough attention to the movement of the subject and the HDRâ€™s I created ended up looking blurry and fuzzy due to the model moving. This was only 2 exposures compiled into one. I will go out and try some straight landscape HDRâ€™s like Iâ€™ve seen online, but I have aspirations to create HDR portraits.
As soon as I create some new ones, Iâ€™ll post them in a gallery online.
