HDR Photography – Sunny View in Paris
HDR Photography – Sunny View in Paris: Here’s a photo that I took in Paris, France! I rarely take photos at high noon because of the harsh light, but this scene is a “touristy shot” that I took while hanging out at Galleries Lafayette. They have a really cool rooftop patio with this skyline view. I was actually scouting this location for an evening shot but I quickly learned that they shut everything down before the sun gets anywhere near the horizon! I’ve seen images from this location at night but they were taken during the winter months when the days are a shorter and the sun sets earlier. It’s moments like these that I wish I had Spiderman’s ability to climb walls so that I can capture cool shots anytime I want at any angle… I guess since we’re dreaming, let’s make it Superman, because then I could eliminate the need for a drone! lol Check out the high-quality version here!
Post Processing & Camera Settings.
To capture this image, I used my FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS. I took three bracketed shots EV (-2, 0, +2) and combined them in Photoshop/Luminosity Masks. Next, I used the Creative Flow Lightroom Presets and Brushes to process my middle exposure (0). Finally, I mixed all my “versions” into Photoshop to get the final image!
