HDR ish

I recently got my hands on Photomatix Pro 3. It's a programme used to create HDR images. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, and the idea is to replicate the difference between highlights and shadows the way the human eye sees it.

I took a shot of a car that I shot recently but never used. I processed the RAW file seven times, each time altering the exposure by 1/2 a stop. These images then ranged from 1 1/2 stops under to 1 1/2 stops over. The programme lets you play around.

This is the result. A lot of tweaking is still required, but it's not half bad, I reckon.

Audi S3 Sportback. Great Car.

Another Portraite...of the same guy!


This was 2 or 3 nights after the last shot was taken, same place,same lights, slightly different setup. Brad was ready to go out and find himself a lady friend, which is why he's dressed as he is. We ended up getting some beers and just playing around with the lights again. He never ended up going out.
