HDR Stop Motion Tour of Georgia

By Anthony Thurston on August 16th 2013

HDR has become sort of a faux pas in the photography field, most photographers cringe when it is mentioned. This is has a lot to do with the crazy over processed looking HDR images that have saturated the internet, but when done right it is hard to deny that HDR has a place in photography.

I came across this awesome stop motion tour of Georgia, which happened to be shot using HDR techniques. I was pretty skeptical before watching it expecting some crazy over processed world, but what I found was quite the opposite. They still went a little farther than I may have gone on the processing, but overall I really like the look of this video. I think that it works well and is not so strong as to turn you away.

Just think if someone used the great techniques that we teach you in our HDR DVD to put together a stop motion video like this. I think that could be one of the prettiest stop motion videos ever. Again, with HDR its all about the processing… do it right and its gorgeous, go too far and your shot is ruined. You can learn more about our HDR DVD and purchase it from our store for only $59.

What did you think of the stop motion video above? Did they go too far with the HDR or was it within acceptable limits? Let us know in a comment below.

    As a photograph, I think most of the HDR presented here is a bit overdone. However, in the context of the video it works quite well and I would be pleased to have produced this.
