Fun with High Dynamic Range (HDR)

So...Brook and I took a 2 hour mini course with Paul McDermott of PMDPhotography at SFU last Tuesday. We learned how to bracket photos (take 3 or more photos with varying exposures) and create a High Dynamic Range (HDR) photo using our cameras and a photoshop program called Photomatix. Here are some photos that I took that evening.
The first one is of inside the cafeteria where we met afterwards to do up the photoshop work. The ceiling is amazing!

Tunnel with heavy duty HDR & SFU South view

I really like how the background looks like a mural from The Wizard Of Oz. That's Brook peering into the red doorway.

Fun with HDR

Brook and I took a mini course at the SFU campus last Tuesday and learned how to create High Dynamic Range (HDR) photos using our camera, tripod, and a photoshop program called Photomatix. Here are some of the photos I took. Thank you Paul McDermott from PMDPhotography for showing us this fun and surprisingly easy technique! What you do is take 3 or more photos that vary in exposure, of exactly the same shot (bracket)...and merge them together using the photoshop program! Super cool!

The Chapmans. (My 100th Post !! )

The babies of the Chapman family. Watson is the regal yellow lab. Murphy is the black one laying down. They are both watching mom's next move.

The lovely and always ready to pose Allie.

Laurie & Bob Chapman.

A wee bit of bonding time...

Ahem... I meant a wee bit of Zombie time.

A pensive moment with Justin.

Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay.....

Brook and I went to Steveston a few weeks ago. We walked the docks madly clicking our cameras for a good hour. There are so many shapes and colours, lines and textures. Here are some of Brook's shots. His post is "Sitting on a knot on the bay". 

Fishing lures.

Anchor chains

Some rustic textures

Some tools fo the trade.
