Movement in HDR

How do I handle moving subjects in HDR? This is one of the most common questions I hear. All of that and more is answered here on the site inside the HDR Tutorial. Enjoy!

Daily Photo – Work in Tokyo

I set up here for an HDR multi-exposure shot, but then people started running into the office. I thought their running was so nice that I made sure to change my settings around a bit to capture the rush of it all.

I didn’t intend to spend so much time around this office building, but I ended up there for about an hour. There are so many nice lines and compositions with the sort of ultra-modern architecture you get in modern buildings…

  • love those reflections ones eyes rome through out the picture always looking to see something .I like

  • I loved some of the modern architecture in Japan – this building in Shinjuku reminds me of your shot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sheaimages/5963388309/in/set-72157627106713705

    Great, complex lines made more complex by the reflections. Maybe too complex, but it works, and the person entering the building creates a point of interest that pulls it all together.

  • Excellent! The movement is perfect and I really like that splash of orange in the distance. Perfect!

  • Great shot Trey! I love movement in my HDR as well. I’m sure you know, but photomatix does a fantastic job of segregating movement when you begin to tonemap an image. Another way, if you want to avoid layers, or dont have Photoshop, is to tonemap a single RAW file, which of course you know. Keep up the great work!

  • I too love modern architecture. Especially with all the possibilities of reflections and adding an additional layer to the photo. This is one I captured recently… http://justshootingmemories.com/2011/08/23/building-reflections/

  • Cool shot Trey – I like the reflections on the glass… superb!

  • Randy Dietmeyer

    This looks like a still shot from any given episode of White Collar. 🙂

  • Susan

    Love this Trey – great reflections and beautiful building!

  • Patrick

    Unfortunately there is massive CA on the pillar to the right.
    A little bit is ok but this seems too much.

  • GregS

    I like the sharpness and the reflections and the just-right motion blur of the man approaching the building. This is one of my favorites.

  • Thx very much! I’m still at burning man… so only getting a few minutes of internet per day… but still downloading all of these comments and stuff to read offline! 🙂

  • @Patrick – Is that really CA or simply a reflection that has been intensified (more saturated?) by the HDR process?

  • Jeff Adair

    Looks like an Apple store…

  • THanks…

    Yes, as many know, a bit of CA doesn’t bother me…. I really don’t notice and neither do 99% of other people.
