One of the photography course subjects was night photography. Armed with tripods we strolled down the Jordan area in Amsterdam to shoot some nice pics.
Some months later I joined a Flickr meet Amsterdam trip. With 6 guys (Stewart, Jeroen, Rod, Vit and Arjen) we started walking in the Amstelstation area, after this we took the subway to the Waterloo square and walked to the Rembrandt square where we ended the trip with some beers.
Shot at the new Central Station Bus Terminal during the 3rd Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk, Amsterdam location. The HDR pictures have been created from 3 RAW files and are processed in Photomatix, Photoshop and Lightroom.
I got a lot of questions how I create my HDR’s. When I started creating HDR’s some months ago I was just using 1 jpg or raw image. Fun but not the result I was looking for. After some googling I found a great tutorial written by Trey Ratcliff. I think this guy is one of the best out there. Check out his tutorial and his amazing pics at Stuck in Customs.
This week I bought the book “Practical HDR” by David Nightingale. It gives very good information on how to shoot pictures and transform them to HDR pictures. The discussed products are Photoshop, Photomatix and FDR Tools.
After reading I must say the produced HDR’s do look better!
