Architectural photo at Gloucester Cathedral featuring ancient crypt with robot sculpture art installation…It was only possible to get this much detail by using bracketing… It seems that the release of Adobe Lightroom CC has re-kindled the fiery debate regarding single exposures vs bracketing, HDR vs digital blending.
Architectural photo at Gloucester Cathedral featuring organ, choir stalls and mosaic aisle. Sometimes you’re just lucky. Before I entered this area of the church, there had been a choir practicing and they had left the lights on. Thankfully, I was able to get the HDR bracket done just before the warden came to switch them off!
Taking HDR photography in Litchfield Cathedral was a pleasure (see other photos here ). I found that HDR photography was really useful to capture this image because of the high dynamic range. This means it has some super dark areas (shadows) and really bright areas (highlights).
Beijing at it’s best was, whenever the wind blew away the smog leaving crystal blue skies and wispy clouds! Digital travel photography whilst being in China was awesome. As with any major city, you’re never alone as a photographer. It’s even more so the case when you’re visiting the hot tourists spots where everyone goes to get those famous shots.
I’ve included my most used and carried photography gear in this list and pictured. Out of the four lenses I carry, they can probably be ranked in the following order (number 1 being the most used)
1) Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8
2) Nikkor 50mm f1.4
3) Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8
4) Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8
However most of the pictures I publish online come from the 14-24mm and 24-70mm.
This article is a brief introduction to HDR vertorama photography so that you can understand what the main components of this style of photography is. Understanding HDR vertorma photography can be easily broken into two parts, understanding what HDR is and then knowing what a vertorama is.
