About

I have been taking photographs both regular and bracketed for HDR for about 2-3 years. I am currently a Canonite using a Canon EOS 40D camera and Canon Lenses.  I have nothing against other brands and the Nikon and its lenses look like a great alternative.   Besides photography, I love hiking, camping and canoeing. I make wooden canoes both of the stripper type and the steambent wood ribs and canvas covered type. I also make wooden snowshoes and Adirondack Pack baskets. I have collected antique woodworking tools for over 30 years mostly for using and possibly because they are so beautiful.

    • On several earlier posts I included the Pre-HDR shot next to the HDR for comparison. They were entitled “Why HDR”. I find regular photographs I take appear washed out and don’t closely resemble the scene as I saw it originally. I think I see things differently with higher contrast and saturation as the HDRs seem more true to life. Everyone sees differently and that is OK with me. I usually take 6 bracketed shots at different exposures so I retain all the originals to play with and compare. I find it interesting how some people find HDR a total turn off and one of my long time friends say that the HDR tone mapped images make them jittery and jumpy. LOL. I don’t mind as we all like different things.

  4. I have to say that I really struggle to appreciate HDR images, although having said that I’ve used it on the odd occasion to ‘bring it in’ so to speak. Nonetheless, I look forward to watching your work pop up in my ‘Reader’.

    • I think its great that everyone sees the world differently and different people like different things. HDR is not suitable to all images and I especially like them for high contrast situations, reflections and some landscapes. They are good for very low light where you don’t wish to or can’t use a flash. I like the fact that I still have the bracketed exposure plain individual images and can use them instead or in combination. Thanks for your comment.
