Long Exposure HDR at Bird Rock

December 25, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

This is the second part of my basic how to HDR series and my Christmas present to you. The final processed image is available for a limited amount of time, a week, for you guys to download. All you have to do is click on the final image and it will take you to the gallery this image is in...Merry Chrismas...

Now that is out of the way, let's begin this tutorial. I used the same Sony 2.8F/28-75mm SAM lens to capture the series you see below. These photos are long exposures ranging from 5-130 seconds. In order to do this, you will need to have a clicker, a tripod, and patience but most importantly a camera with a good lens. 

 

I then imported these photos into Adobe Lightroom and used the HDR function to merge them into the image you see below. Merging long exposures is kind of tricky because you can have multiple moving objects in all your images and this might cause an unexpected abnormality in the photo or no photo at all. So keep this in mind when attempting to do this type of digital photography. 

The final image you see below took me four different attempts to get right. I had to wait a week for the conditions to be right for me to get the shot I wanted and it paid off, as you can see. 

Remember to click on the photo below to take you the gallery it is in and download it. It will be available for one week only. It will be moved to my Patreon Gallery once that time period expires. Once again, Merry Christmas everyone and thank you for the never ending support.
