Changing Light

It is interesting to see how much or how little, evaluative range my camera has. I am always attracted to high contrasts of light  and usually the higher light areas get blown out. I could capture more of a range if I tried HDR and got a few exposures of one scene. I will probably try that, but tonight I just wanted to capture the moment as I saw it without fiddling with settings or setting up a tripod. Leaving the feathered friends out of this group of photos as I share what else I saw.Enjoy.

  2. Very nice, I especially like the one with the guy running. The tonal values are wonderful.

    • thanks Donna, I had to do some recovery work in Lightroom after the fact to darken some blown-out areas but I too, was attracted to this scene for this reason.

  3. What camera do you have? If you can shoot in RAW then you can try a bit of HDR with only 1 shot. I do this quite often and it works pretty well.

    • Hi Steve I have a Canon Rebel XS. I can shoot in RAW but there is no HDR function in the camera itself. I have combined three photos into one in the past, then used Corel Paintshot Pro to develop it..

      • If your camera came with Canon Digital Photo Professional, you can edit the RAW file with it, and adjust the exposure and export to 3 or more jpg files of different exposures. Then it’s just as if you took 3 separate bracketed shots.

  5. You captured the moment beautifully without fiddling with the settings. Sometimes the simplest is not only the easiest but also the best. I really love the second to last photo.
