Kent Wedding Photographer in Folkestone

For further photography-related information check out my compendium of tips.

I did a photoshoot at the Quality Burlington Hotel in Folkestone last Sunday and employed the high dynamic range (HDR) technique rather than lighting interiors. The tonal range was so extreme in some of the shots that I put the camera into manual mode and made 5 exposures at -4, -2, 0, +2, +4 stops of exposure, relative to the metered exposure, and then blended the shots using Photomatix Pro.

I used my 16-35mm f/2.8L lens and made some corrections for perspective distortion using the lens correction filter in Photoshop during post-production. I also did some selective levels and contrast adjustments to the shots.

The benefits of this process is beautifully illustrated by the shot of the room with a seaview where details from shadow regions in the room to the reflection of the sun on the sea are all captured.
