awesome pictures, I really like the first couple. What settings did you use on your camera for them?

Love the look of the racing stripes on the white Camaro. The black Camaro with the blue stripes looks like it's in stealth mode.

Facebook sucks, it compress the images and cause distortion and artifacts, compare that image to this file:

as you can see, the file hosted by my server has much greater detail and quality, if you ever see a image on facebook from us that you like, mr. Ivan, and want a cleaner copy, know that you can shoot me or littlemt a pm and we can email it to you or provide a direct link to my hepcat.com domain server.

On the first 2 images, I used a Sony Alpha 65 SLT, as we don't shoot with or even own a DSLR anymore.

The Sony used a 35mm f/1.8 prime, ISO100 and a shutter speed of 1/80 second, this was the intial exposure, the shot is a 3 shot ev bracketing, so the next shot was overexposed and the final underexposed.

Me, my wife (littleMT) and my son all shoot images together as a family and we use various camera bodys, and point and shoots, we like small cameras for the most part, LittleMT's Sony being the size of a credit card.

When we do HDR we tend to still maintain a realistic look to the image but we can do some surreal wild and funky stuff. The picture Ivan posted was made from 7 exposures, and yet it doesn't come off as a HDR image.

IMO, high dynamic range imaging is mainly to allow a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image allowing for more detail, and not necessarily the surreal unworldly look. (Though we will do some shots in that manner on occasion.)

We love lowlight/nightime photography and as a result use fast primes and some exotic lens, such as the image Ivan posted, which was shot with a tiny Olympus OMD using a fast Leica Summulix f/1.4 prime shot wideopen.

This image was shot with that combo, this one is a 3 ev bracketing HDR shot, with the Leica look.



this shot doesn't scream HDR, in fact, nobody would probably say it is, it is subtle enough to get some more detail and dynamic range.

Here is a more aggressive HDR image we did for a fellow board member.






We also do some black and white HDR images, which you don't really see much of, again of a fellow board member:




I don't tend to stray to far from what the eye see's, though the human eye has a better dynamic range then a cameras sensor, so a touch of hdr can bridge that gap alittle.....

Here is another shot of Ivans 'Sizzle'. The first shot seen in post #9 was shot with a tiny micro 4/3rd's camera, the flagship Olympus Omd E-m5, again using a Leica Summilux f/1.4 prime.

This shot of the Sizzle was taken with the Sony A65, using a 35mm f/1.8 prime, also shot wide open, the sensor on the Sony A65 is a larger APS-C sensor, and a 24 megapixel camera. Shooting wideopen blurred the background nicely, giving us some '3d pop', making for a 'bokehlicious' image, the car is sharp, 3 ev bracketing for a low HDR bringing out details. In this shot you can see me in the bumper using a tripod. We tend to clone stamp this out, but in this case, I liked the detail you see in the reflections, you can see various camaros as well as myself, this detail is a direct result of the lowlevel HDR 3 exposure bracketing.

Looks pretty good!

Why does everyone thrive on doing HDR so often though? I prefer pictures with great camera work, they look far better than HDR's if done correctly... Can't wait to get my DSLR sometime to start playing.

Either way, nice pics!

Thanks for all the information. I just got my first DSLR so I am trying to learn how to use it. I just figured out how to take true HDR pictures using multiple images.

you might have seen this but this was my first attempt and true HDR.
