Reasons Why You Should Shoot HDR Images at the Lowest Native ISO Setting – From the HDR Photography Workshop Series
In previous tutorials, we discussed what the optimal shutter speed and aperture setting should be when we are shooting HDR photography. Now, we are going to discuss the optimal ISO setting. In HDR photography, we are combing multiple exposures to create one final HDR image. This process of combining exposures automatically creates certain challenges, one being the overall grain in the final HDR image. When you shoot at your camera’s lowest native ISO, you will still see a little bit of grain in your images. Because of this, always keep your ISO at the lowest native ISO on your camera whenever possible. For Canon users, the lowest native ISO is 100. For Nikon users, the lowest native ISO is around 160. In this article, we will discuss reasons why the optimal ISO setting in HDR photography is the lowest native ISO on your camera. In addition, we will also explain what native ISO means.
What is the Optimal Aperture Setting in HDR Photography? – From the HDR Photography Workshop Series
In a previous article, we talked about what the optimal shutter speed is when shooting HDR photography. Now, we are going to discuss the optimal aperture setting in HDR photography. When shooting HDR images, we want to capture as much detail as possible. Each camera lens will have an aperture “sweet spot,” where you can get the most detail and sharpness. However, the lens’s “sweet spot” may not always be the optimal aperture setting when shooting HDR images. In this article, we will discuss what exactly a “sweet spot” is, as well as the general rule of thumb for the optimal aperture setting when shooting HDR photography.
Pixel-Level Auto-ISO For One-Shot HDRs? Another (Mobile Device) Concept
Mobile device camera developers are at it again, apparently. They have developed a sensor technology for mobile device phones, that I desperately would love to see in professional DSLRs!
How To Create An HDR Image Using Simple Photoshop Layering
Most of today’s latest and greatest cameras have incredible amounts of dynamic range, however that doesn’t mean you should just go blasting away at your shadows with recovery sliders and brushes. The best image quality from a camera still comes from proper exposures. So if you have a scene that is almost manageable within a single capture, but you’d still like to reduce noise in shadow areas or improve your highlight preservation, you can do so without having to set up more than just two photos with separate exposures.
How to Process HDR Photography Live Google Hangout
Every Wednesday night at 8PM Pacific Standard Time (with a few exceptions), we hold a Live Google Hangout!
Tonight, January, 16, 2012, join Post Production Pye as he explains Processing HDR Photographs live on Google +. Be sure to follow us on the SLR Lounge Google Plus Page to join in! Why participate? This is essentially a free workshop where you have the chance to ask questions and learn from your peers. Think of it as a study group or even a classroom.
