This was from one of my earlier missions, but I liked it the most of my mission videos and I thought it would fit well here. Enjoy!

HDR is just plain awesome ... but it is also a bit time consuming ... I just don't have the time to get great shots like that.

That is a really cool video, especially considering it's all "still" shots.
Did you use Adobe Premier for the video production?

Is that where you take 3 shots of the same thing at different exposures?
I can do that with my camera (bracketing) but haven't experimented with it very much.
^^ Yes HDR is exactly that Doug.

High Dynamic Range - is pretty much were you set a tripod and camera up. And change the EV Settings (Exposure Values) on the camera.

3 pics is the average ... but if you want some more contrast or even sometimes more detail. Some people even do up to 5 pics.

If some of you are scratching your head of how a camera does this ... you need to first have a camera with a bit of manual control. SLRs for instance.

Then you set the Shutter speed and Aperture constant and adjust the EV settings. You need at least a shot at Normal (0 EV) and one shot at -3 EV and one shot at +3 EV.

Then with some nice software ... merge them together.

That works for basic ... then a bit of tweaking in the software and VOILA ... High Quality HDR

I don't do this much ... becuase it takes time ... and my photography is always on the go and the studio. ... sadly.

Thanks for the info!
I'll have to play with that a bit more then.
Manual settings are no problem on my camera, and as mentioned,
I can set it to "bracket" and it will take 3 pictures within a second at 3 different exposures that I set up.

I'm sure my PhotoShop-CS would work for the post processing, but I take it you have to mask off the areas you don't want from each image?
Gotta be a tutorial online somewhere....
MarkKleis; Any help?

Here you go Doug ... and it explains how it works in more detail too.

Photoshop has a good Automated way of doing it.

Thank you very much!
Gonna have to play around with it a bit.
Hey Doug ... what type of Camera are you shooting with??

Nice man.
