The Butterfly HDR Effect
September 23, 2013
Another hot day in the forest, another picture. Yes it was hot that day, I remember finishing up my gatorade even before I got home. Well, I got a few good shots and it’s all worth it. I don’t usually bring along my monopod when walking in the woods, simply because I don’t want to lag around too many stuff, but thank goodness I did that day, I don’t know, maybe it’s the heat, I’ve only been walking for 45 mins, but feel so tired, and raising that camera up to my face became a struggle. The monopod helped me stabilized the camera and really ease that weight of my right arm and shoulder. Yes it may seem that the monopod restricted my movement at first but, I’m learning to adjust and work with it. Another good thing in using a monopod is that, it slows me down and make me think about what I’m about to do.
Photo was shot using 3 exposures using the 60d’s autobracketing. Using Photomatix Pro 4 I merged all three exposures and created the HDR photo above.
