One of my hobbies when i get some time is to get out and about with my camera gear in tow and try and get creative.
I particularly enjoy HDR photography. So what is this i hear you ask, well…
HDR Photography is also known as high dynamic range photography. HDR photography is the process of combining 3 or more exposures of the same image. The idea behind high dynamic range photography is to highlight the best exposure for different parts of the same photograph. HDR photography typically works best in outdoor settings, or settings with a wide range of light ,and texture. Digital cameras however expensive cannot take in all of the range of light and texture variants in the shot. Combining different exposures gives the detail in the darkest through to the brightest parts of your shot.
I process my photographs using specialist HDR software Photomatix pro and then tweek the images in Adobe Photoshop . Playing around with the settings in Photomatix and Photoshop can create some interesting effects , many HDR shots look ‘painted ‘ or even ‘cartoony’ .
Anyway here are some of my efforts.
I think that God delights to see us using our skills and talents as photographers to enjoy and document the wonderful world he has created. One thing that made me think about photo’s is, how many times do you see an old photo of yourself or someone you Know and you say ” wow you look really young there”
Its true we cannot stop time slipping by and we cannot stop getting older , we in this life are truly perishable , but we can however look forward to eternal life with our saviour because of the sacrifice he made for us.
All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made
Remember everytime you look through that camera view finder that everything you see the beauty of your Wife , Children, animals, the beach , the moutains or anything else , that it was all created by our One God , our loving father.
