Day 236- Homework

Inspired by Scott Kelby’s seminar yesterday, I set out today to take some bracketed photos to practice HDR.  Of course, Scott’s photos were shot in Paris- and mine were taken in Benicia- but it was all about the techniques, right? So next time I’m in Paris, I’ll be ready!

I’ve dabbled in HDR before, using Photomatix and Scott’s preset for Photoshop, but this time I did a little finishing work in Photoshop and Lightroom.  My eye isn’t trained yet, so I spent a long time with the sliders trying to decide what looked best.

 

 

This one isn’t HDR, but was edited with Color Efex Pro, one of the freebies we got for attending.

  1. Wow! I’m impressed. These are all nice shots and the HDR effect is very subtle. What Paris? These are picture postcard perfect!
