HDR Photography – Venetian Floods
HDR Photography “Venetian Floods” – Here’s a shot that I took in Venice, Italy! I took this photo on my way to the Ponte dell’ Accademia bridge. It was a bit of a journey to get to the bridge because the streets were flooded! I know people say that Venice can flood from time to time, but until you’ve experience it first hand, you quickly realize how unprepared you are for the “splish splash show!” Every alleyway I went down was filled with ankle deep water. Luckily, the Venetians are always prepared for the flooding. I bought a pair of plastic bag boots from a random street vendor. I found out that these boots aren’t made for walkin. Well, not for long walks at least, after 15 mins I started to take on water! Despite the soaker, I stopped to take this photo and eventually made it to the bridge 🙂
Post Processing “Venetian Floods” – I took three bracketed shots EV (-2, 0, +2). I used Lightroom on the middle exposure (EV, 0) to create a couple of different creative versions. Next I combined the original three EV (-2, 0, +2) RAW files into the New Aurora HDR and also Photomatix to create two different HDR versions. Finally, I blended all my different “versions” into Photoshop to get the final image!
