HDR Attempt: Garudh the guardian

My inspiration: Trey Ratcliff. This guy is awesome, not just as a photographer but also as a human. He likes to SHARE* his photos, his techniques and his HDR secrets. After spending countless of hours on his website (www.stuckincustoms.com) and trying to understand his philosophy and technique to take/make HDR images, I thought I would start trying my own.

Hopefully, someday, I would be able to capture as stunning photos as Trey does.

This one is at Hiranya Narayan Temple, near Thapathali Kathmandu. I took three exposures, hand held, as I don’t have any tripod (yet). Processed in Photomatix and then edited the tonemapped one in Photoshop.

*Here in Nepal, I know several so called “photographers” who never really like to ‘SHARE’ their technique or tips. They look down on new young guys doing it (and making it) and they frown a lot. Plus, usually on their photos, one will see big semi-transparent “copyright” and they will leave “All Rights Reserved” blah blah notes below the photos. Funny people.

  1. is this possible through normal camera or we need SLR camera for HDR .. i was also watching some of the tutorial by Trey Ratcliff on HDR..since i dont have slr is it possible through normal one..

    • I have no idea if normal (compact)cameras can take multiple exposures/auto bracketing but the new 3G cameras/mirrorless (Fuji x100) can take photos in RAW and can do autobracketing as well.

      • thanx ,… cant we do with JPEG …coz may camera can take multiple exposures but cant take photos in RAW..btw im using Sony cyber shot camera..
