p.1 #1 · experimenting with HDR


The birds weren't cooperating, so the rose became the model. Does this look grainy? I decided to play with the HDR. I would love some suggestions for making good floral portraits.

Thanks
Nancy










So dark you can't see the stem

They're beautiful

Never entered my mind to make an HDR of a flower See how narrow minded I am

They both look nice, Nancy. My be some color shift? I see a blue cast on my monitor, especially in the first one. May be some reflection?
You can also try to push the DR even further and see if you like that look. HDR is always a matter of personal taste.
However, this is a very good start and you were able to get some very nice results

Nice Nancy. A little dark perhaps, but it's a nice composition. You got some nice detail in there. Did you try pulling up the shadows? You don't need perfectly lit stems, but generally, you want to see a support structure if possible. I don't get the "floating in space" effect with this one, so that's good, but a little more light underneath would be beneficial. Anyway, nice start!

Hi Nanc, looks a tad dark on my monitor as well.

Depending where your flower is, try bringing a black bkg poster board, hit the flower with some fill flash with the white foam between the flash and flower.

I agree Harsha. I think I over did it here.
That is a fun filter, but it makes for some dark shots.
Thanks for looking.

Lil, I was bored and the birds were not helping, so the flower was the target.

Thank you Greg. I didn't try that with the shadows. I agree about the floating in space part. My first attempt was even darker, but I think making it lighter would be better.
Thanks for the ideas.
