NIKON D300, Nikon 105 Macro, HDR in Photomatix
After a few rainy days here in Austin, I noticed some wildflowers growing in our garden. The rain had ended and the cloud cover was still overhead. A great time to shoot flowers! I had never shot a flower in HDR…so here was my chance. With a few small sprinkles landing on my camera, I set up my tripod and cable release…took 5 exposures. I tried a few angles and shooting up close and further away. I wanted to show texture of the flower and thought the colors would work well in HDR. So here it is..my first ever attempted flower HDR! A couple drops of water on the edge of the flower added a nice effect. After seeing this finalized shot…flowers are pretty cool as HDR! It was also the first time I used my macro lens to produce an HDR. A day of firsts! Experimentation is what photogrpaphy is all about! Enjoy!
