A friend of mine is an amazing photographer and recently got into HDR. She showed me how to use this technique and the past week or so I have been learning and practicing. Here are a few of my "practices" on my own photos...

Anyone else into tonemapping/HDR? If so, any critiques and tips are welcomed! I also plan to take a photography class in the near future.

Nicely done for someone starting out.

How many exposures you using? -1 / 0 / 1? If you haven't all ready I can recommend Photomatix for HDR's. Photoshop's not bad, it's just gives you images that need a lot of work after it's rendered them.

2 right now. I know I have a long ways to go. I literally just started playing this past week

I am using Photomatix now....still learning the settings!

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Do you HDR your photos? Do you have any examples? There is an HDR group on Flickr and Im in awe of the work there. I aspire to be able to brag and post my photos in the group!

Very interesting technique. I have never heard of it before.I would like to know more. I enjoy photography and have several good cameras. I haven't experimented much with altering the images. I think because I am experimenting with how different settings on the camera can alter the original image.What is the best program for altering the images in this way?
I found the differences in your pictures to be very striking. By the way nice pictures.

Thanks! fixed!

I am in love with this technique...and I have a long ways to go!
Using Photomatrix is pretty easy....although I am still learning all the settings and trying to master the right ones.
I will be getting a new camera and taking a class....but in the meantime I am working with photos I already have.

If you keep at it there's no doubt you'll improve every week
Photomatix is great, it just takes a while to get the best out of it. There's some decent guides about on youtube, I'll try and find some for you.

Yeah I used to do a lot, I've not got any online though, will have to hunt back through my stuff and upload some!

Add me on Flickr so I can keep up with your progress

Great stuff. I love HDR photography. I use it for portraits, but that's a little more tricky. I hate what it does to most skin tones. But it makes the environment unreal!

Hdr is great for bringing out colours. However there must be cautioned about "over doing" it with fhdr.

I use MediaChance Fhdr for tonemapping and creating the images.

Here is a picture taken at an old motor show, see how the colours are so vivid.



A sunset in our botanical gardens.



A picture taken at the farm, of the fields of cabbage.



I love fhdr photography, and photography in general.

OP, if you have any more questions or anything just ask.

I would suggest taking 3 exposures at different exposures for optimal effect. One about right, one under and one over exposed.

A camera with exposure bracketing is very handy to have if you are gonna do lots of hdr pics.

VVV

Beautiful pics GEL

I really love the cabbage patch shot, that one just stirs something in me.
That is exactly the kind of emotional response that makes a picture great.
Very fine work, color me impressed (and I am a vicious art critic)

I love your photos.
It amazes me how different the feel or mood is when the tone map is applied.

I went to SCAD and the photo department was highly into this sort of work at the time. even though it was at its infancy. One of the students I became friends with is friends with some guy who pioneered this, well maybe not pioneered it, but he was one of the first on the scene to become marketable.
His industrial work is all over the web.
I am trying to remember his name now but 5 years of architecture school has made my brain go blank.

Jascha Hoste is his name, his new stuff looks different then the photos I remember from back in the day though.
