|Final HDR Image|
Title: Beautiful Buddha Reflection (We shoot here on my Croton Creative Workshop)
Location, Kent, New York
Exposures: 0, -2, -3, +2 EV
The name of the game is to fill the frame. Notice how every inch of this frame is filled with an interesting subject.
I used my Canon 15mm full-frame fish-eye lens on my Canon 5D for this image. Without HDR, the reflection would have been very dark.
When using a fish-eye lens, make sure your camera is level. A slight tilt to the left or right can mess up your image.
Also: Shoot RAW, but to save HDR processing time, convert your HDR images to JPEGs. One technique is to use Image Processor in Photoshop.
