does pictures need to be taken in .raw?
I don’t have a SLR camera yet. I do have compact digital with EV function… some help?

motleypixel says:

No but dude, have you heard of Magic Jack, as seen on TV…totally rules…much better than other knock-off MagicSFX crap.

Hi, do you know “MagicSFXphoto” (just google it)? There you will find a good free video showing the way to take awesome photographs. It helped Joe to take photos which have a wow-effect any time you take a look at them. Hopefully it will help you as well.

Nice video. Keep ’em coming.

startphotography says:

Nice video. I like creating HDR images by making 3 different exposures of a single RAW file using adobe camera raw, and then I overlap them with Photoshop.

The Sony alpha nex5 has built in HDR and panorama sweep and I think it can do 3D too

To learn how to achieve true HDR photographs with your own camera, please search out Pro Photo Results / HDR on YouTube

the best Hdr tutorial i seen, very powerful and usefull , thanks a lottt

Alll of the information about HDR Photography, provided on the internet, has been intended to assist and teach “Photographers” how to do this process. While it’s easy to teach the shooting aspect, it’s both time consuming and expensive to learn how to do the “proper” post-processing. If you look up Pro Photo Results / HDR Photography (on YouTube), you will finally be able to get the finished post-processing done for you! You do not need to be a professional Photographer to accomplish this.

my iphone 4 does it!

BR5499a says:

Sony a55 will do HDR’s automatically. But, if one uses that auto function, you are stuck with what the camera wants to do.

destin325 says:

Im not sure if bridge and ps are separate but I start off in bridge when doing my hdr. Here is how I do it.

Open the folder with the pics while in bridge—> highlight the thumbnails you want to use for HDR —–> once highlighted (should see small thumbnails opened on the right side) click at the top “tools” and look for “HDR” it will open a side menu box that says (on mine) “merge to HDR Pro”..click that and let it do its thing….play with the menu buttons, enjoy.

Lolpop751 says:

Yes, very easily you can do this, Also this application is probably worse for the professional look.
This application converts your images to JPEG, but photoshop it can remain RAW 🙂

Stevie Gaymon says:

Great

motleypixel says:

I think there are cameras that already do this, but as with all “auto-stuff” there are the geeks out there that like to do things manually. The HDR scene out there is becoming more and more main-stream and not like the “oh wow” thing it was 4 years ago. Trey Ratcliff comes to mind…he lives right here in Austin…that guy got in on the “here’s how to HDR” early and has landed him some nice royalties 🙂 For me, HDR is not that heavily used in my portfolio…just once in a while.

dmana3172 says:

Can’t there just be a camera that would take automatic HDR photo for us so we won’t have to worry about photoshop and all the hassles of doing HDR stuff with it?

motleypixel says:

Thank you!

motleypixel says:

I don’t know…there are ways to do this in Photoshop but I prefer this application.

pyka10 says:

Finally a descent tutorial with a guy who knows what he’s talking about! 🙂 Thanks:)

HDR — The best way to shoot high-quality HDR photography and video with DSLR cameras is the 3D-BS MINI (beam-splitter) Rig. To find out more visit our site – 3D Film Factory (dot) com

motleypixel says:

any version will work…the more current versions will work better (they constantly improve the engine).

grimreaperatta says:

okay, this might sound like a stupid question, but do ihave to get photomatix pro 3? or can i go on with pro 4?

motleypixel says:

IF the 600D can do “in-camera” HDR (wouldn’t doubt it), then the manual should explain how to use it and how it works. Regardless if the camera can auto-HDR, if you can still adjust EV w/o adjusting the apertuer (f-stop), then you can still take varying EV exposures and importing them into any of the many HDR applications available today.

TheUmara11 says:

Hi, I am going to buy Canon 600D in coming few days. I heard we can do HDR photography in SLR camera itself, would you provide any guide for it?

motleypixel says:

Most of the time 3 raws will get you 99% of the way there…I say most of the time because 3 will result in a nice bell-shaped histogram…5 may help but usually very little and 7 I feel is just over-kill…the law of diminishing returns kicks in at 3 images. What do you use to process your RAW’s? If you use an app that can reduce noise i.e. LR 3 then process the RAW’s will a little NR, crop, dust removal, etc. and sync the same changes across all 3, save as 16bit tif use PhotoMatix

kostis007 says:

my camera has an option to shoot 3,5 or 7 raws in a row with a different ev.should i prefer 7 or 5 to 3?is it better?i have almost no idea how to use photoshop and process images at the moment 😛

motleypixel says:

if you can shoot raw and process the noise down some and then save in 16bit tiff and use those, then raw would be better.

kostis007 says:

i tried with raw and i get slightly less noise.
does it make a difference if i use 7 different raws instead of 3?

motleypixel says:

Well maybe…it depends on how extreme you are with regards to noise…also the newer versions of these HDR apps are getting better and better. As you know, RAW images contain more data to manipulate and thus I like to shoot RAW always, then dress them up (remove noise etc.), then save as a 16bit tiff and use the 16bit tiff to generate the HDR composite.

kostis007 says:

is there any difference if i use 3 jpegs instead of 3 raws?
