    Default #59 - HDR podcast just released

    Hi Members,

    It's a long time in the making but an HDR (high dynamic range) podcast has just been released. It's an interview with Joseph Cartright who is an amazing fashion photographer who is also an HDR instructor. Joseph describes how to create an HDR photo and there are further references to help you learn this incredibe technique.

    Hope you like it,

    Thanks Marko - I enjoyed this on the train down to visit my folks for Christmas. One thing I was particularly interested in was his use of HDR for fashion photography. He hinted that there were ways to do it, but never actually revealed what they were...

    I will ask him about that in the future. I figured conventional HDR is enough for now since it is a very involving process and static scenes are easier to start out with. Thx - Marko

    Default Hdr?

    Hey thanks Marko for the podcast on HDR. Very informative!

    I went from not even knowing what those letters stood for, to where I'm now saying " Hey I could do this." Mind you I have not tried it yet but it gave me a new project. Thanks. Keep 'em coming

    Great work! Very useful. I've listened to it from start to finish several times already. It's encouraged me to get my feet wet with HDR over the holidays.

    Keep up the great podcasts! They are very much appreciated.

    Thanks so much for the compliments...but the thanks on this one mostly go to Joseph Cartright (cartright.com) for being amazingly generous with the sharing of his knowledge in a clear and easy to understand way.

    Still compliments always make me smile.

    thx again everyone!

    Yeah, and you asked some great questions Marko. I've certainly tried the technique out, and definitely had that slight initial letdown - you know, you're out in the field, and you think "Ah, I'll try a few HDR's!" - you pick a nice subject, bracket your exposures, and look forward to giving the ol' HDR thing a try when you get back.

    Once in your computer, you do the HDR process, with the excitement at being able to produce something amazing, only to find that your image looks... well... pants. Really pants.

    But you do it a few times, and you get a feel for the process, and after a few attempts you start to get results that, while not great, certainly hint at "Oh, so *this* is what the HDR thing is about!" This is the stage I've got to, though it certainly hasn't been a focus of mine so far (too much other stuff to learn!).

    So as you say in the podcast, you really do need to work with it for a while before you can start to "get" it.

    Cool beans!

    Absolutley enjoyed this! One of my favorite shots I ever took is in HDR! I love my HDR shots but many never came out - have a suspicion now as to why!

    Just wish my camera had autobracketing!!!!

    Thank you for this podcast!

    Thumbs up

    Hi Marko (and others),

    I found your blog about a week ago and proceded to download all the podcasts that interested me. I've been listening to them all in the car on my way to and from work each day and anywhere else I've driven.

    So firstly, thanks from me for all the effort you are putting in. I have reasonable knowledge but have learnt so much already from your work, we never stop learning.

    Podcast #59 - HDR was a huge help. Firstly, I've been playing with HDR type images for a long time. I would do it 'manually' in Photoshop with several exposures (or even just layer duplicates of the original) and manually manipulate and blend them using layer masks etc.
    When I did finally check out HDR software the results were utter crap and I immediately went back to my way that I've trusted for so long.

    Enter podcast #59 and Joseph's great tips and explanations and I understand now about the amount of stops my monitor can show me and realise that I need to learn more about the software. Very helpful indeed.
