Freaky Nagoya HDR

November 23, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I was preparing for an upcoming blog piece about Nagoya, Japan, and I came across some images I took from my hotel room.  I had my camera set up on a makeshift tripod (actually I think it was 2 towels and a pillow) to support the camera and I told the camera to take 3 images at different exposure settings.  (-2 EV, 0 and +2 EV) I had always planned to make an HDR image (High Dynamic Range) but had never gotten around to it.  Well I had some time today.

I opened Photoshop (CS5), and selected File, Automate, and Merge into HDR PRo.  After selecting the 3 files, Photoshop does it's magic, and opens HDR Pro.  I selected "Surreal" preset and then moved the sliders until I liked the result.  Good times!  This effect has been overdone as of late, but I think that is because of how fun it is to create these surreal images.  Give it a try!  Here are the original shots:
