HDR photos, bracketed photos, fun with your cameras!

HDR photos, bracketed photos, fun with your cameras! I took my camera and tripod and went out in search of some good subjects for bracketed photos. Please understand not only is this concept new to me, but I am still learning my camera. (Pentax K200D) After reading the post by Mike Hendron about this, I downloaded the trial version of Photomatix Pro and gave it a shot. Unfortunately some of my photos are not usable as I changed one too many settings on the camera and they are too light to use without manipulating them prior to letting Photomatrix do it's magic. Plus it was a very gray day, which didn't help matters any. Long and short, I am still very very happy with what I have learned. Judge for yourself! And by the way, Photomatix Pro couldn't be easier, no joke.  I didn't even have to open the help file in order to use the program. (because this is a trial use of the program, you will notice there is a Photomatix watermark on the photos)

I admit, I used my own photo program (Acdsee) to tweak it after I was done as I already know how to use this program, but all in all, I am very happy with what I have learned in a few short hours.

Thanks Andrea for pointing me to Mike's post on this topic.  This is just what the doctor ordered.  I have been asking around to find out how to do this and here it is!

Well, you've got my attention. I always have problems with Zoey the Cool Cat sitting at the window watching her pet lizard outside.

Russel, LOL, that Zoey the Cool Cat is quite a character. She would look good in HDR, if you can't her sleeping so that she is not moving.... and use a tripod. I think you will be hooked once you try it. :D

Those pictures are quite stunning. Is it cheating, though, to use HDR, fusion, Photomatix, etc.? LOL

I have to head on out to my concert, but I hope you'll keep posting lost of new pictures.
