Experiments with HDR

Posted on Updated on

I posted a week or so ago about HDR. I had a chance over the weekend on the camping trip to get some more pictures. These pictures were all taken with a cheap point-and-shoot (Fuji FinePix A610) and converted to HDR in Photomatix.

Using the method I did to take HDR photos, I needed to steady the camera for about 10-15 seconds–however long it took for me to take 3 pictures of the same scene. Unfortunately, I did not have a tripod here at school. Somebody’s trash solved my problem, though! While at the campground, I found a bolt laying on the ground that was a bolt on one side and a wood screw on the other. The bolt was the same size as a tripod mount! So I made a monopod out of my walking stick and used that for the pictures. +1 for innovation. 

I’ve created a Flickr account with my favorite pictures that I’ve taken. You can click this link to view the images in their original sizes, download, them, or scoff at my amateurishness.
