    Damien Parker from LifeStyleHDR.com approached me regarding this image, and how I would go about enhancing it using my HDR workflow. This video demonstrates how I would go about enhancing this image. As I have said before, there is more than one way to do it, and this is strictly how I would do it. This is a fast paced video intended for individuals who are already familiar with HDR phtoography, Photomatix, Photoshop, Nik Color Efex, and Imagenomics Noiseware. For those who are not entirely familiar with my general process, I would recommend watching https://vimeo.com/62064585 as a primer to familiarise yourselves with the tools being use.

        This video was created as a presentation for the Caulfield Photographic Society here in Melbourne. My older HDR tutorial was beginning to look dated, and it was time to give it a refresh, with all the new developments in photography and software. This video addresses: * What HDR imaging is; * The tools that one needs to create an HDR image; * The process to create multiple exposures from a single RAW image; * The process to create a tone-mapped HDR image; * The process to post-process the tone-mapped HDR image in Photoshop using plugi-ins from Topaz Labs, Nik Software, and Imagenomics; * Some details on discount codes for Photomatx Pro and Topaz Labs. The music used in this video is Creative Commons, sourced from Jamendo, by the respective composers as annotated in the video.

          This is the first attempt to make kind of a timelapse, I dont like it a lot but anyway is not very bad to be the very first real test. There are two reasons which make me dislike a little the timelapse, the first one is that I made a mistake when shooting because all the pictures were a little overexposed in the sea, but fortunately I was shooting in RAW so I could fix it a bit. This overexposure is what made me think of post-processing the pictures with photomatix. The second mistake was using a ND8 filter to reduce the amount of light and give the flowing effect to the waves, but as it turns out, the effect is not very beautiful in a time lapse. Technical info: Camera - Nikon D3000 Lens - 18 - 55 mm Number of pictures - 161 Interval between two pictures - 6 sec Software used - DSLR Remote (Android) + IR cable Post-processing - Photomatix + Photoshop + After effects All of this could not be possible without Miguel Angel de Furtos' help whose website is the following: http://madebyfrutos.wordpress.com/ Thank you friend.

            MUSIC: "Air Prelude" by Kevin Macleod Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ A short and creepy montage of scenes shot around the ever-photogenic island of Manhattan -- filmed entirely in high-dynamic range and comprised of some HDR Timelapse footage I shot, along with a collection of slow-motion and normal 24fps footage processed from Red Epic-X RAW video that I recently captured and then exported as -2,0+2 TIFF stacks to be tone mapped in Photomatix using a batch processing workflow. Please note that none of this was shot using HDRx -- only normal exposures from the camera post-converted into HDR using the traditional faux-HDR method of pushing and pulling the RAW file to create bracketed images. While HDRx is a powerful tool with a lot of benefits for shooting realistic looking extended dynamic range, I chose to steer clear of it this time in an effort to avoid the motion artifacts that come with it. Especially in light of the fact that I imagine those slight artifacts would have been particularly problematic when working with a more "surreal" method of HDR tone-mapping, as opposed to the more subdued and natural proprietary algorithm Red uses. Also, in this case, the goal was to show the added "pop" you get with HDR video when tone-mapped using a Photomatix detail compressing workflow, while trying to avoid going too far over the top and completely "cracking out" the image. Please note that my method admittedly has several drawbacks -- namely the grain from the pushed footage is a little excessive at times (a lot at others), and additionally, the push/pull limitations of the RAW file still won't allow me to capture the full dynamic range of an extreme lighting location like Times Square the way I can with DSLR bracketing of many more stops. Thus, billboards are still blown out in some of the shots -- just not as blown out as they would have been in traditional video footage. Additionally, unfortunately in an attempt to mask some of the excessive noise, I took some artistic liberties with noise reduction, and the overall sharpness suffers a bit in several shots. There are also some flickering issues, some related to the high-frame rates I shot at for certain scenes, and others related more to the processing of the HDR itself, since preventing the ugly halos associated with bad HDR is even more tricky with moving footage. I think I did my best under the circumstances, but there are a few shots where halos rear their ugly heads. To top it off, some of the high-frame rate footage was shot at a higher compression rate (and a few normal 24fps shots where I goofed), and thus the tone-mapped image really brings out some of the artifacts there too. I tried to keep that footage to a minimal, but there were certain shots that I liked compositionally that I chose to include anyway. Nevertheless, the idea here is to give you an idea of what can be captured with a workflow similar to this, as well as to hint at what might be possible once in-camera HDR technology improves to the point of capturing at least three exposures simultaneously without the added detriment of having to push and pull in post, which as stated before, adds quite a bit of grain. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy...

              Shot over 2 days and compiled over 18 months (work life got busy!) I introduce my first complete time-lapse. Inspired by the many amazing time-lapses out there I thought New York was the perfect place to start my new addiction. I learnt a load of lessons on this such as get a more sturdy tripod and don't change your mind half way through shooting a shot.

                  Autumn 2012 It was the best 5 weeks in Thailand that it could have been. From the beaches of Ko Chang up to mountains of Pai, I loved each single place and met some interesting characters along the way, that I am happy to call friends today. I enjoyed making this time-lapse video so much, even with the challenges on the way - broken intervalometer in Ko Chang, night mist fogging my camera and lense during the night time-lapses in Pai, forgotten parts of tripod, etc. Shot with Canon 600D, HDR edit: Photomatix 4.2.3 Music: Eddie Vedder - Guaranteed, Soundtrack from the movie Into the wild I do not own copyright to the music. (just love the song:) Enjoy and as always constructive feedback is very welcome:) D

                      Hello everyone, I've made a tutorial for those who have been wondering how I got the level of detail and sharpness into some of my recent zoo photos. You can see the collection located in the travel section here: http://photoreallabs.com/the-san-diego-zoo/ This video tutorial covers the basics for creating HDR images that focus on only one part of an image such as "Geoffrey the Giraffe" here. Rather than focusing on how the HDR affects the entire image, we focus just on the subject and then bring it to Photoshop for masking. In this example, the Giraffe is the only HDR affected image we want and in order to discard the HDR treated background that came along for the ride, we mask out and substitute it for a slightly darker and more natural backdrop from a lower exposed version of the same file. Watch the video to get the full scope of how you can do this with your own images and stay tuned for the next episode! Please leave a comment below if you would like to see me cover a certain topic of if you just have some general feedback. Thank you for watching and catch us on the next episode! www.shoottheplanet.net "Cheers!" ~Indi
