First ever attempt at HDR

I didn't go very far in the exposure...only +1, 0, and -1...going up and down to 2 seems more ideal. Had to manually line up the shots since they were taken handheld.

Original standard exposure:


HDR

That second shot Is beautiful

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

HDR is a matter of getting more out of a shot than is normally available through a single exposure. The best method employs the use of a tripod ... and then taking a quick series of shots underexposed (meter reading -2 EV), normal exposure (meter reading 0 EV) and an over-exposed (meter reading +2 EV). This can only be done through manual settings on the D40, since bracketing is not available. And to be quite honest ... +/- 2 EV is not possible with current bracketing settings.

The reason HDR type photography is necessary at all, is that the sensors on a camera can only handle so much range of light to shadow. Compared to our eyes, a D-SLR can only handle about 1/10th the range before the sensor becomes overloaded (information lost to WHITE) or underexposed (information lost to Shadow).

Biggy, what's impressive in those photos, is how sharp they are! Wow! Look at all that detail! And handheld!!

I gotta hang with you clowns one day with my gramp's camera, then I might learn something





I couldn't even rip off some night pics. I hit some button and screwed something up. The shutter speed went super slow, like the battery was dead or something? I don't know what I did.

I've found that night shots are much easier to learn how to do HDR; this was my first attempt:

Heh, thanks. Yea the handheld part was a slight pain to deal with when aligning the shots. I couldn't figure out how to get the D300 to do the auto bracketing so did the exposures manually

I did the exposures manually on my as well, as the D40 doesn't support Auto-bracketing. I used a tripod and the IR remote, but since I still had to touch the camera to adjust exposure setting between each, PS CS3 came in handy to auto-align the seperate exposures.

Assuming you were not on Manual and using the cameras built in metering to choose the exposure for you, it sounds about right.

Photography is all about light. And since you were doing a night shot, the camera needed to keep the shutter open a really long time to soak up enough light to get any image at all. Otherwise you would have just had a black frame. As it is, since you probably weren't on a tripod, you probably got a whole bunch of blurred lights and not much else.

Go buy the book 'Understanding Exposure' by Bryan Peterson. It shall tell you all that you desire.
