I went out on a photowalk again recently with my friend Jimmy, this time specifically to capture some High Dynamic Range (HDR) images. Having experimented with it in the past in front of our houses, we thought it was time to go out and capture some more interesting images. Most of the HDR images below were stiched together using at least 2 and up to 7 HDR images to create the final image you’re looking at. Taking into account that a single HDR image is created with at least 3 normal images, that means that in some cases up to 21 images were used to produce a single HDR image.
One of the things that I like about HDR images is that you can get a LOT more detail in the skies. Sometimes even details that you don’t notice while you’re at the scene. Because of the detailed skies, the images look a lot more dramatic especially when using very wide angles.
And here are some shots of Jimmy in action:
The next time Jimmy is going to walk a little bit into the river with his tripod to get the really good shots. 😀
And below is an image of me taken by Jimmy.
Yes, that’s an Alienware cap.
