Piers at play

Ever loaded up a picture and you wanted to play with it. I bet we all have to some degree. Looking at my original picture I thought how it would come out on matt paper, but wanted more texture. With no plan or idea and working in P/S 6 I did the following. Filter/oil paint Stylization4_Cleanliness 2...

Charles; Duck:
Glad we can all laugh, even though there is a serious side to my post.
The question now is..How do I get Charles and Duck to fight!!!

Just thought of a postscript to this.
The two of you go off and do a three exposure in hdr.
Then take the -2 and +2 and process them...hehe

Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

"" I went back to my first trial of HDR which is 5 exposures (-2, -1, 0, +1. +2) I merged only the two extremes. The result differed from the merge of all five, mostly in the smoothness of the transition of shadow to highlight. I'll re-do and go with only the -1 and +1 images as they are more aligne...

Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

Interesting set of responses. I am yet to use my latest camera Canon 1dxMkii for hdr, but I know the old one Canon 1ds Mkii has an exposure range of 10 1/3 stops extrapolated. I know that if inside a building and bright sun through any window, I cannot get detail from outside with detail inside. I h...

HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

Posted an article about this subject some time ago, but I thought it fun to return. Yes I know that depending on whom you listened to and your own style of working you will take as a minimum 3 to 5 shots at perhaps 1 or 2 stops latitude difference. Or perhaps finding your black area and exposing for...

Re: Which is the best book to learn photography?

" I have no favorite. The "best" is the one you can grok and learn from. As mentioned, it does not have to be a book. It can be books or videos or mentoring or formal classes, whatever works since everyone learns a little differently. " I think that paragraph says it quite succinctly in a fluid way....

Re: doodling

I love Borad's wackyness. It surpasses most of what I have seen for creative abilities and artistic style..
Will have to ask him, one of these days, how he went from original to finished item... :) :) :)
