The Nikonians On Location #51 - HDR-1

The first episode of at least two on HDR - High Dynamic Range - this time dealing with the concept of dynamic range and the principles of capturing HDR. Martin Joergensen covers setting up the camera and shoots the first few frames in his home, after which he ventures into the dark Copenhagen night to capture some night HDR's.

Show Notes: January 26, 2009
This program covers the theory and shooting side of HDR, and the next episode will focus on the software side - combining and post processing bracketed series and HDR-images. Before the next time you might want to get a hold of an HDR-program. Martin will mention Photomatix and Picturenaut, but there are many other programs out there, which can do the job. More on that next time.

The sound file:

  1. (High) Dynamic Range
  2. Setting up the camera
  3. First shots
  4. Outdoors
  5. Bye

Video supplement:
The first examples of bracketed shots and the combination of them into tone mapped HDR-images. We see both some natural looking pictures as well as some more typical cartoonish HDR's.
