HDR that is with a point ‘n shooter!

We have a local club. Many members have compact cameras and I am sure that they feel at times intimidated by those of us with DSLR cameras. So I try to explore ways to do things with my Coolpix L22 that they can do and encourage them to explore photography with the camera they have.

For this photo, I set the camera to landscape assuming that this mode would set the camera for aperture priority and put the camera on a tripod. Then I adjusted the exposure compensation level to -2 exposures. Shot the picture. Moved the exposure compensation to zero. Shot the picture. Moved the exposure compensation to +2 exposures. Shot the picture. And of course all the time being careful not move the camera too much.

Processed the 3 photos in Photomatix and post processed in PS Camera Raw 7. I’ve posted for comparison the normal exposure. Post processed it also in PS Camera Raw 7 with just about the same settings for the HDR photo. I believe that you can see the non-HDR photo has more contrast.

Anyhow, if you have compact camera and are wanting to explore some other aspects of photography, it can be done. You have to know what your camera can and cannot do.

Happy shooting!
