I think I’m starting to get the hang of setting up shots for an HDR image. It took a bit to figure out how to bracket my exposure properly and to be honest I’m still working that out. I’ll tend to bracket two stops. The beauty of the 7D is that when you set the shutter to high speed continuous, it fires off so fast there’s very little time to shake. Light also plays a big part. These shots were all taken at, “Magic Hour,” where the light is very golden and warm and pushing well into the 5400K range. Not all of the shots were a success but the majority worked out well enough I’m comfortable posting them here.
Darleen and I were on Oakville Mini’s Mini Escape 2.0 yesterday and the end of the day saw us at this winery out by Niagra for a tasting and Dinner. I of course took it as more of an opportunity to get some cool shots in.
The Winery had an old truck on the property that was used when they owned a Sand and Gravel company. It was a wonderfully rusty ruin and really allowed me to get my HDR freak on.
