    Re: Disneyland in HDR photography

    I'm intrigued, and the examples you provided are beautiful... but I feel dense in not understanding how these images are accomplished? If the single image is composed of several images, how do you successfully make an HDR image of moving things, for example, the Cinderella and her prince on the parade float?

    Obviously, I'm missing something here.

    Re: Disneyland in HDR photography

    I like the Partners shot also. Except for merging in HDR, and doing "tone mapping", no other effects were used. The look is a hallmark of HDR done badly (in my opinion), but the intent is the same - to take the best areas of each of several photographs, and merge them together so you have one highly detailed image with loss of data in dark spots or blown out lighting in light spots.

    No problem. The Cinderella/Parade HDR is misleading, because it was done using a single raw image. Because a RAW datafile allows you to change exposure up to four stops positive or negative, you can make three copies of one RAW file, and then expose one properly, expose one several stops darker, and expose the other several stops lighter. When merged, the HDR image has all the data of three shots, but doesn't have the blur from obviously different shots.

    Ah, I see. That makes sense.

    Re: Disneyland in HDR photography

    People definitely have different opinions on HDR, but in my opinion, a HDR image should look natural. The HDR that looks like it was painted with a brush or had special photoshop effects applied isn't effective HDR, in my opinion - the images don't look crisp, and you can get effects like that easier by just skipping HDR and using an art filter in photoshop.

    Natural HDR should look like this:



    Or even better, like this (notice the texture on the dress from the wind and the three shots capturing different things):


    On the other hand, overprocessing gives a cartoon art image like this (which some people LOVE, don't get me wrong):

    Re: Disneyland in HDR photography

    So when taking these images, How long does the delay need to be between each shot?

    Re: Disneyland in HDR photography

    Many digital SLRs just take three shots under a setting made to "rapid fire" the shutter. It doesn't matter how far apart they are, just that they be different. My camera has a setting where it will take three shots up to 2 exposure values apart, but you can also take one shot at one shutter speed, another at a different speed, and so on. It's not recommended that you change the aperture, as that can affect the depth of field and make parts of your photos out of focus that you might not want out of focus.

    Re: Disneyland in HDR photography

    Not at all - I have CS3 and it's really one button operation - there's a special feature built in just for HDR, and photoshop does the rest. The program I mentioned, Photomatix, also has a free download and trial period, and may I recommend a GREAT tutorial...

    from the guy that did a couple of the images above... explaining exactly how to do a HDR (or how he does it), at:

    Thanks for the info. I'll need to look into upgrading to CS3, as I'm still using CS.

    Re: Disneyland in HDR photography

    OMG. These picture are incredible!!! Wish I was tech saavy enough to try and do them myself, but it would probably come out a big old mess, haha. I'm not really sure I even understand it. But man, AMAZING photography. What they can't do these days, eh?
