Running experiments entails some time during which one has to be physically present but not mentally. Thus, I get a few moments to learn random facts and study things like the news. Anyway, so today I discovered “high dynamic range” pictures. Basically, the idea is to combine pictures taken at multiple exposures to create a final result with huge dynamic range. So I went through my pictures to see if I had taken any exposure-bracketed photos, and found one good candidate. So here is the result – an HDR (and then sylistically filtered) picture of Jordan and I compared to one of the originals.
Here’s the original
And the HDR/enhanced version (from 3 originals)
The idea with the HDR pictures is that the enhanced dynamic range can be selectively filtered to make the picture look “special” to your eyes. I’ll be on the look out for opportunities to take/make more of these!
Of the block where our little apartment lives:
and of USF from UCSF:
I think the second one is the most artistic. Anyway, I’ve figured out to set the camera up to take multiple exposures automatically, so I’ll look for opportunities to do HDR pictures as I go forward. Look for them!
