    Default HDR and Panorama Tutorial

    Hi

    Have searched thru this forum for a nice proper step by step guide (from the actual shot to the PP itself). But drew up a blank (yes i knoe there HDR know-to-do threads) but im still very confused

    Perhaps someone can make a Proper Step by Step Tutorial for complete Newbs like me???

    Cool website!
    The first step already made me chuckle "Step 1: Get your Apple on (but it also works if you refuse to wear a black turtleneck and use a PC instead)"

    If I'm not wrong, you got to change it to 8-bit before you can save as a JPEG.

    Shoot with low ISO. Shoot with raw if possible.

    Here's a simple tutorial- im no pro myself though

    some guidelines for good HDR shots.
    1) find a place with good amount of contrast. - e.g sunset/sunrise are good examples. nightshots are another good example.
    2) place ur camera on a tripod, take at least 3 photos with different photos :-1ev, 0ev, +1ev. For good HDR i recommand at least 5-9 shots. make sure ur camera stays in the same position
    3) bring back home, merge it with Photomatix or Photoshop.

    Photomatix is pretty simple to use, as for photoshop u need to use the automate function->merge to HDR
    im refering to photoshop cs3 for this instance cos thats the one I have
    you will realise that merge from photoshop is not that terrific.
    to make the HDR stand out, you would need to play with the curves to bring out the highlights, shadows, background,etc,etc

    hopes this helps

    i highly recommand photomatix =)

    Posting one of my better HDR tries



    Shot from a single Raw+Jpeg file

    than used PhotoMatix and Noise Ninja 2 to do the edit

    didn't use 3 or more shots cos I dun have a tripod yet, would be too difficult get nice shots

    You can always use a platform, like a parapet, table, railing etc.

    Thats what i always do :P

    dun really look that hdr yet...

    u are using d90...u can try to use auto-bracket plus shoot continous. hopefully can remove some movement....but then again...a tripod/pilliar/table or watever is still the best

    Since HDR is a common topic, why dont the mods make it a sticky?

    does photomatix accept canon raw files (.CR2)?
    i tired opening the raw with it and it turns out all purplurish.
    i'm wondering if the 3 different exposures have to be shot in jpeg format.

    Yes, photomatix can accept .CR2 files.
