DIGITAL DARKROOM PT: 2

Homework Week: 4

 

This week Ron taught us how to reduce Digital Noise and HDR.

I had used the digital noise reduction before but not the way Ron suggested and his way I must say, is more logical and very effective. It makes sense just to reduce noise in certain areas only rather than global application of the filter.

Here is my attempt at the homework.

 

NOISE REDUCTION

Following photos of birds of prey were take at high ISO of 1600 so needed some reduction in digital noise. Although Canon 5D is pretty good at pushing up ISO without producing much noise.

HDR
 

Here as Ron correctly pointed out PHOTOMATIX PRO is far superior to Photoshop and I have posted examples of Two different photos. Each was taken with AEB in Raw and then combined to HDR. AS Photomatix renders the final result as a TIFF file I had to convert them to jpeg for web and quality is reduced as result.
