Photographer's Note

I'm not sure how many of you on TE have done much in the way of HDR photography (i think its a rather low # as most members don't enjoy the HDR), but for those that have you'll know how difficult it is to capture people in the photo without ghosting them.

For HDR to work properly, you should take a series of 3 photos with an exposure of -1, 0, +1, or a series of 5 photos at -2, -1, 0, +1, +2. And a tripod is almost a given because each photo has to have the precise same composition.

So when people are introduced into the shot, during the sequence of photos they will move, which causes the integration of the 3 or 5 photos major problems. Often the people will look like ghosts and will be transparent.

With this series of 3 photo's i got very lucky. All the people seem to be realistic, no ghosting. I was even surprised to notice the lady photographing something herself, I didn't notice that at the time because I was so focused on the settings and getting my 3 photo's as quickly as possible.

I guess sometimes you get lucky, personally i am pleased how this one came out, but i totally understand if you don't enjoy the HDR effect at times.

Have a great day!
