Adventures of an Amateur Photographer

Updated on January 2, 2017

HDR brings the best in me as a photographer :))

HDR -High Dynamic photography- have strong effects on people. Some like them very much and others hate them.

I loved HDR from the first moment. After coming from a photo hunt, I add HDR effects to my nature and travel photos. Especially clouds, water seem more estetic in HDR photos.

P.S. I took this photo in Nişantası-İstanbul

A journey in nature

I took this photo while walking in Kaz Daglari (Mount Ida ) in the Aegean coast of Turkey.

The path goes to a lovely restaurant called the secret Garden.

HDR in City - The old and the new

I took this photo in Wien, Stefan's doom is a georgeous Gothic Catedral, its reflection to the modern building is seen in my photo.

HDR made the reflections stronger and made the picture look better.

Istanbul is more magical with HDR

HDR Photography - How to create HDR Photos

To begin using HDR photography, you need a few simple things.

1.A digital camera, preferably a DSLR but a good point and shoot will do the job. Remember, you need to be able to change the shutter speed manually. The focus can stay auto but if you can set it on manual do so

2.A tripod; to function correctly, HDR needs to take different pictures of the same scene. If you do not want any motion flow, take pictures of stationary objects.

3.Latest edition of Photoshop

Cat Photo

I took this picture in a very sunny day at noon. As the cat is in the shadow, I failed to shoot with right exposure.

HDR corrected this mistake:))

HDR Photo makes me more creative

A photo taken in the lovely garden of Sabanci Art Museum Emirgan Istanbul.

The original of the photo was very attractive as the location is very beautiful. y changing the light values and applying HDR mode I made this scene more artistic. Now the clouds have a dramatic air and that made the picture more expressive.

Do you like HDR Photos?

      @RinchenChodron: Thanks:)) HDR means "High Dynamic Range". Your final picture is a combination of the lighest and the darkest images. You take many pictures using exposure bracketing and than combine them into one picture.

      Nice pics! I do a lot of HDR too....there are occasions (locations, conditions) when it's the only way to get a decent picture. Well done!

      And I believe that good photos won't need any single word to explain what it means. With just a look, you know what it wants you to think of it.
