I do not have a good HDR image to upload, so I will upload an almost complete shot, just so people can see where I am starting from. It is not my very first HDR, but I shot it with multiple photos, from sunset to just after it got dark, so I could get a range of not only high dynamic range, but the look of the buildings with lights on in the windows and such. I guess you could call it a hybrid of multiple exposures and HDR. I will be shooting some HDR photos of the Miami skyline over the next few weeks, and I will be creating some HDR images. I'll post a few of them here. I will shoot with my Sony A55 in various ways, including the built-in HDR funtionality and with bracketed exposures as well as manual HDR adjustments, using various types of software to create the HDR images. This is my first serious foray into HDR, and it should be fun!

well since my last comment i have come a long way into the world of hdr and learnt an awful lot about it and what effects you can achieve and i suppose more to the point is i try not to over cook the HDR effect as it is very easy to do so i know.

Just joined this group. I guess my "ultimate objective" in relation to HDR is to obtain as wide a dynamic range from a digital SLR as I used to get from well-exposed Kodachrome 25 in the olden days. That tends to be my (somewhat limited) objective from most post-processing techniques - to try to compensate for the deficiencies of the digital sensor. My preferred HDR software at present is Photomatix Pro3 and I tend to take 5 exposures in Aperture Priority mode, one stop apart and then apply my camera and lens compensation presets to the RAW files in Lightroom before exporting each as a TIFF and importing into Photomatix.


wow absolutely amazing.
i love the different things you can do with photography its mind blowing what you can achieve for a different look.

Hi Catgirl,

The best place to learn is the web. That's how I learnt. There's an absolute wealth of information out there. Just google search "hdr tutorial" and you will be spoilt for choice.
You need to understand what hdr is, when to use it, how to set up and take a series of hdr shots, what software to use to merge and process your shots and finally how to bring out the best of the final image. So yes, a lot to learn but well worth the effort I think.

Hi, I've just joined this group as I really need some help. I have this wonderful camera, 5D MKII, with HDR video and I don't know where to start? Are there any starter tips for newbies to HDR? I need to do some serious reading up.

Hi everyone

Don't forget that you can upload all your HDR shots into the group too - be nice to have a growing collection.

Look at the Reality group, that's really busy with people uploading.

Hi, I've just hoined the group and I have the same question that cattyal made. I'm getting used to a post processing software to produce my HDRs pics though my cam is provided with an automatic position to produce them.


I'm wondering if pseudo HDR is acceptable here as well? It's not often I managed to do the real thing but it's on my list of things to do. Meanwhile I regularly experiment with Photomatix and Dynamic Photo HDR on single files.

Feel free to upload the the main home page - but if you're after discussing a photograph, put it in a relevant forum Smile
