Life through the Lens (17 October 2021)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

This is the river close to home. We had just had a fall of snow and I played around with software trickery.

This particular shot started off as seven images and I processed them into a single HDR image. This was long before the days when even mobile phones had an HDR option, and I thought the processing brought the still-laden sky, in particular, to life.

    • From the photographer’s perspective it is easy, You take the same shot, from the same place, several times. So, to be in the same place each time, you need to use a tripod. Each shot is with a slightly different setting. The software does the rest.

      HDR images resemble closest how the human eye works, but the fun comes when you start playing at the extremes.

    • I never owned anything from Apple, but my Android can. I don’t know how it does it, though, but presumably it is easy enough to program it to take several images in quick succession, then combine them back into one.

      Not only these, but my blog is challenging! Have a look at my previous post. Hoping for a witty comment!

    • It’s a river, and a bridge, running through fields. Everywhere had a light dusting of snow. The HDR processing I did on it brought the clouds to life a bit. It looked like there was a ton of snow still up there, although if memory serves, we escaped it.

      We generally escape most of the worst weather here. It mauybe snows one day a year and generally thaws after a day. It can flood, though. It never got us but has been up to the bottom of the garden. It was the drain in the road that flooded.
