Behind the Scenes

Posted by on Nov 28, 2010 in Canon EOS 60D, Christmas, HDR | 0 comments

I finally had some time to test my new tripod. I went to the Old Town Square (in Prague, Czech Republic) to look at the new Christmas tree.  They lit it just yesterday. This particular photo was taken from behind the place with all the stands and crowds and luckily the sleighs fit there as well:).

Last weekend I had a chance for short trip to Prague airport. On my way home the sky was full of beautiful colors and interesting clouds so I took some shots and one of them is this one:

Petrin Gardens

Today’s shot is from Petrin Gardens in Prague. I had some time during the lectures and this beautiful park is near my school. Luckily, I had my camera with me so I could take some pictures.

Petrin Gardens

This particular photo is composed of three different exposures (-2 EV, 0 EV and +2 EV). I merged them together to get a higher range of light. Shooting right against the sun would give me either underexposed foreground or overexposed sky and I didn’t want either of that. With these three photos I got every area of the photo properly exposed.

I started with HDR post-processing only recently and my source of knowledge comes from the famous HDR Tutorial from Trey Ratcliff. I promise I’ll try to learn from my mistakes so my photos get better and better:).

Hopefully I’ll have some time during the weekend to process some more photos from today and then I’ll post them here as well. See you soon:).
