Day 14


So Ive been working on this technique "As the Eye Sees" kinda thing. Im slowly getting better at it, and still developing a system for going about it. I hope I can teach a lesson on it.

The idea is to take 3-4 images and paint them together to make an image which is close to what you would actually see when you are there. I don't like using HDR programs for this because I think it doesn't look realistic.

I find myself wanting to do this more and more, the problem is the "seams" where 2 images are blended together. It's very easy to sink 1-2 hours into processing something like this, but there are some tricks.

Day 8 (opening my door to a package) was created using this technique and there were very, very few issues, however - once you start shooting next to trees and organic, moving things (wind) its a whole other ball game.
Canon 5DII , Canon 14mm 2.8 L II 4 exposures all at f4.5. Blended together in PS, then processed with Michael Andrew Paintballer Pro ® Presets
