Gone to See Hawaii. Big Island Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan. Day 2: Morning Session.
Image Processing Techniques. A comparison of different HDR (high dynamic range) programs for rendering a series of images 7 images taken at different exposures (+3, +2, +1, 0, -1, -2, -3 EV). The programs compared are Photoshop CS5, Photomatix Pro, and Nik HDR Efex Pro. I should note that I am not able to run the Nik HDR Efex Pro on my desktop computer as it causes Photoshop to crash. I had to use a different computer to process the images using the Nik HDR Efex program. The images were taken with a Nikon D2xs camera and 105 mm f/2.8 VR macro lens.
