Christmas Eve Drumset HDR by GillianIvy Christmas Eve Drumset HDR by GillianIvy
Merry Christmas!

This is my Father-in-Law's drumset, decked out for Christmas. I strung it with lights and hung ornaments on it! ;D HDR, 3 exposures +2, 0, -2. 8 Second shutterspeed. HDR composed in Photoshop. I'm new to the whole HDR thing, but I like how this came out.

I really loved how this came out. I took a lot of the long exposure HDRs, but this one looks the best. The flat bg sets off nicer. Duly noted for future HDR endeavors. And I just mixed via PS's filters rather than the other one I used, some free download thing, I forget the name of. ;P It's so much simpler to me to adjust gamma/detail/etc rather than adjusting presets.

I thought about making a print of this for him (Kevin's Dad), but I'm mad at him at the moment and it is hard to be nice to someone you're mad at. He made my Mom cry. Long story. I haven't talked to him since Christmas night. And we live in the same house, so he's really getting the cold shoulder.

Ooo, nice thought! ;D I love playing with long exposure. Mixing it with HDR is fun. I had no idea it was going to look so awesome. The other tree pictures just have so much going on with all the colors and lights. The plain wall sets up a more distinct and uncluttered backdrop.

I've never gotten the hang of long exposure... they always come out far too bright =(

I did these ones at 8" the 10" setting was too bright. Also, the +/- exposure helped. And tripod! :D I actually take most my photos at a slightly longer exposure because I hate how flashes look. I set it to a delayed flash so I get most of the ambient colors and not solid black bg and over contrasted shadows. Though sometimes I get trace images. I mostly like the outcome. My bf just flips my camera to auto! :O
