    • Optimizing Contrast in a Photo


      from Photofocus Video Channel Added

      For this image, I really wanted to bring out the contrast. At the same time, I also wanted to take control over color and tone. Enter HDR and Camera Raw. Here's the workflow. Merge the images in Photomatix Pro. Invoke the Contrast Optimizer method for a more subtle HDR approach. This is part of the new version 5 beta (get the free trial). Finish the image using the Finishing Touch options. Save a 16-bit TIFF image and choose Open saved image with Photoshop choice. Convert the layer to a smart object. Run Camera Raw as a filter. Take advantage of options like clarity, toning, sharpening, and post crop vignette.

        Hal Schmitt from LIGHT Photographic Workshops (www.Lightworkshops.com) shows his high dynamic range (HDR) prep preset creation in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. This technique will zero out the default settings in Lightroom's Develop module helping you to create better and sharper HDRs with HDR Soft's Photomatix Pro. Thanks for the question during the Google + hangout with Photo Focus and HDR Soft. Email additional questions to hal@lightworkshops.com

          • HDR Waterfall


            from Photofocus Video Channel Added

            On a reent trip to Costa Rica, I set out to capture a great waterfall image. The problem is that no one exposure would do the job. I could capture the sky, and the trees were muddy. If I captured the trees, the sky blew out. The Solution Solving this problem was pretty easy. It was a combination of production and post. I put the camera on my tripod and attached a remote to minimize vibration. These are "should do" and not "must do" steps. Photomatix is very forgiving here with alignment options. I set the camera to ƒ/22 to get a LONG exposure (smooth water and smooth clouds plus great depth of field). I choose Exposure bracketing. I captured seven exposures that showed the full range of the scene. I then took the image into post. With a quick trip through Photomatix Pro, I merged them together, solved the ghosting issues, and gave a great end result. The image I created is a 16-bit TIFF file that I can open up in Photoshop or Lightroom and apply additional options like Lens Correction or selective adjustments. Here's how I did it.

            • Canon 6D Raw Timelapse Test


              from Justin Barlup Added 992 1 1

              First Test with Canon 6D doing timelapse. I used Photomatix Pro and Finalcut Pro X. This was done with just a slider and yard stick and I moved it every quarter inch per 5 seconds using the EOS utility WIFI app to click the shutter. I didn't use Magic Lantern, just in camera RAW. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

                In this tutorial I show you how to take make HDR images look even better. I take a three exposure bracket processed in Photomatix Pro and export a 16-bit TIFF file. This can then be opened in Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom for additional finesse. Enhancements include negative clarity, a graduated filter, and a post-crop vignette.

                • Córdoba en HDR. Timelapse por Deblur Comunicación


                  from deBlur Comunicación Added 30.6K 163 28

                  https://www.facebook.com/DeblurComunicacion https://twitter.com/DeblurES Os presentamos el vídeo que hemos hecho sobre Córdoba, pero visto desde el prisma del HDR. Lo cual le confiere a las imágenes un look completamente irreal. El HDR es una técnica para procesar imágenes que busca abarcar el mayor rango de niveles de exposición en todas las zonas. Esto se consigue mediante la mezcla de varias fotos de la misma imagen con diferentes exposiciones. Cada fotograma del vídeo se ha realizado mezclando 3 fotografías con el programa Photomatix Pro y luego montadas en Adobe Premiere CS6. En algunos de los planos se ha utilizado los plugins GBDeflicker (para eliminar parpadeos) y Twixtor Pro (para poner a cámara lenta). Para esta pieza que dura dos minutos hemos realizado la friolera de 12.000 fotografías (más o menos) con nuestra revivida Canon 350D que se ha ganado una merecida jubilación. El movimiento se ha conseguido con un Slider IGUS motorizado de 125cm. Hemos tardado varios meses en realizarlo ya que este año ha sido el más lluvioso de los últimos 60 años y encontrar días buenos ha sido difícil. Córdoba, Andalucía, España Esperamos que os guste. And now in english. We introduce the video we made about Cordoba, but seen through the prism of HDR. Which gives a look to the images completely unrealistic. The HDR is an image processing technique that seeks to cover the widest range of exposure levels in all areas. This is achieved by blending several photos of the same image with different exposures. Each frame of the video was made by mixing 3 pictures with Photomatix Pro program and then mixed in Adobe Premiere CS6. In some of the shots was used GBDeflicker (to eliminate flicker) and Twixtor Pro (for slow motion). For this piece that lasts two minutes we made a whopping 12,000 photographs (more or less) with our revived Canon 350D (Rebel XT) which has earned a well-deserved retirement. The movement has been achieved with a motorized IGUS Slider 125cm. It took several months to do it because this year has been the wettest of the past 60 years and finding good days have been difficult. Cordoba, Andalusia, Spain. Hope you like.

                  • HDR Raw Timelapse experiment #1


                    from Boeriewood Added 19 0 0

                    Tested Canon 5D MK2 and Vello intervalometer with this quick timelapse. Shot as RAW and HDR. Used Photomatix Pro for slapping together and then After Effects to render final. Shot through my bedroom window. I really like the possibilities of this and hope I can experiment more with this concept.
