|you got me wrong jowelle, and I'm not upset.
what I'm telling is this (i'll simplify it very very simply hehe):
my brother says: he won't or doesn't use HDR in broad daylight
what I'm saying: I won't use HDR at ALL, broad daylight man o hinde. personal preference ito and based na rin sa gamit ko ng Photomatix, Adobe Photoshop, filters, and NX
because: there are other ways you can do it where you have more control over how you would want the exposure to be. I don't want to be tied to Photomatix's algorithm (I had my Photomatix days just like everybody else).
1. i'm not lambasting you
2. i'm actually trying to impart something to you. there are other tools like filters and other software where you can have more control. for instance Nikon Capture NX (sorry wala akong alam na equivalent in Canon Raw processing). (Paging Jeff, may Nikon Capture NX ka ba? cool yung control points ano?) where you'll amazing control over VERY selective areas using its control points. Kaya ko sinabi na shotgun approach ang HDR (with Photomatix)
i'm not an expert, im far from it, but I do have "some" experience out there in the field, at baka matawa ka pa kung makita mo gears ko: i'm still using an old D50 and just two lenses. Now, you said you wanted to learn? whats with the "let me be" attitude. Don't be such a spoil sport, read Jeff's reply and maybe you'll LEARN something about constructive discussion.
so what's the bottom lesson: if you can REALLY REALLY avoid it, avoid HDR. the more you become dependent on software to get the right exposure, the less you become adept at judging the quality of light. more often than not having the right tools (i.e. filters) and just waiting it out a bit longer to get the light you wanted would be enough to get your shot of the day.
Btw, newbie pa rin ako sa photography, halos sabay lang tayo nag start. Si Jeff lang yata dito yung into photography longer than WE can remember hahaha. Peace Jeff :)
