I took this panoramic shot of Table Mountain and Cape Town from Milnerton Beach. It just had to be done, the colours in the sky were amazing! (Its actually three photos, stitched together in photoshop)

This is a picture i took of Lions Head and the surrounding cape. It was taken from on top of Table Mountain. That ocean looks very inviting, but its damn cold!

HDR Photos

by on Nov.03, 2006, under photography

Recently I’ve been learing about HDR images. HDR stands for high dynamic range and in order to create HDR images, the technique involves using software to alter a single RAW image or a series of jpeg images with different exposure times by combining them and then adjusting the contrast ratios. The best software to use in my opinion, is either Adobe Photoshop or Photomatix

The result can be a very rich coloured image that almost jumps out at you. The technique can take some practice and because all images are different, the outcome can vary greatly. Usually, compositions with a range of colours work well. Some great tutorials can be found here:

Here is one of my first HDR images, taken looking over Cape Town waterfront with Table Mountain in the background:
