Default High Dynamic Range

Is this a software thing or a camera thing, kinda looks like both.

I have a digital rebel pro and CS3. Can I do HDR.
Sorry the n00b questions.

Both. You use three (or more) bracketed exposures from your camera. One under exposed, one correctly exposed, one over exposed. Then CS3 has a "Merge to HDR" thing that combines the images into the one HDR.

If done right the results can look super cool. Sometimes it looks super realistic and sometimes really surreal. I haven't tried it yet but I have wanted to. Let me know how it works for you.

I have been using Photo shop since 2.5 I think. But it has always been for web work, very little photo work. But yeah Ill check it out. Just need to figure out how to take 3 exposures at once.

Look at this, its neat
http://www.tawbaware.com/maxlyons/gigapixel.htm

That doesn't look like a good candidate to me.

This same guy has examples of "stacked":

and "blended" exposures.

http://www.tawbaware.com/maxlyons/cg...e.pl?gallery=1

They are excellent examples of good situations to use it in.

My first try at HDR anything... Opened up my original RAW, and used CS4 to bracket two stops down, then two up, and one as shot. I then opened up those bracketed exposures in Photomatix Pro and then tweaked it 'til I liked it. So, I guess not the exact right way to do HDR, I guess it's called "Pseudo HDR". Well it still looks killer to me. I don't have a good tripod anymore to be able to do on scene bracketing the right way so I'll have to live with this.

The pic is from a trip I took to AZ earlier this year, the Painted Desert Trading Post off an old abandoned section of Route 66.

I do them on the computer. These are all facebook pics I took that I made HDR. Obviously with CS3 they'd be even nicer, and some are too fake I'd say.








Heres one thats so overdone its more of a painting


and this one became really vivid with HDR
