3 weeks ago

Using RX10 I set cam to Continuous exposure bracketing 5 shots

Here are the 5 shots resized with exif

DSC05296

Make = SONY
Model = DSC-RX10
ISO Speed Ratings = 125
Exposure Time = 1/500"
F Number = F11
Exposure Program = Aperture priority
Exposure Bias Value = -1.3EV
Exposure Mode = Auto bracket
White Balance = Auto white balance
Contrast = Normal
Saturation = Normal
Sharpness = Normal

DSC05297
Make = SONY
Model = DSC-RX10
ISO Speed Ratings = 125
Exposure Time = 1/320"
F Number = F11
Exposure Program = Aperture priority
Exposure Bias Value = -0.7EV
Exposure Mode = Auto bracket
White Balance = Auto white balance
Contrast = Normal
Saturation = Normal
Sharpness = Normal

This would be the BASE Shot

Exposure Time = 1/200"
F Number = F11
Exposure Program = Aperture priority

Exposure Mode = Auto bracket
White Balance = Auto white balance
Contrast = Normal
Saturation = Normal
Sharpness = Normal

DSC05299
Make = SONY

ISO Speed Ratings = 125
Exposure Time = 1/125"
F Number = F11
Exposure Program = Aperture priority

DSC05300

This is what Base photo looks like processed....

These are some examples of blending all 5 shots together to create HDR's

There are infinite ways to tweak these HDR shots. These are just 3. You will notice (at original size) more details in shadow areas on end of log for instance.

I used Mediachance HDR for blending and PS to adjust levels, unsharp mask, resize.

HDR 1

HDR 2

HDR 3
