Washington DC based photographer Tim Cooper published several videos together with B&H on creating HDR photos in a realistic way – today we bring to you 2 of them, looking at both the photography and the post processing.
Our eyes can see a much wider dynamic range than any camera sensor currently in use. And since in many cases – especially when shooting landscapes (but also sometimes indoor) there is a much wider dynamic range than what our cameras can capture – we can use HDR or high dynamic range techniques to help us see everything that we want (and can) see in the image.
Cooper starts with the basic idea – shooting different exposures and how to determine how many shots you need and how to determine the current exposures. On the second video published this weekend, Cooper talks about post processing an HDR image – first in Lightroom and later on using the popular HDR Photography Software – photomatix.
