This was shot in my brother-in-law’s basement, lit by a single small window high in the wall behind me. That wasn’t much light- even wide open at f/2.8 I was shooting at ISO 6400. This is a standard 3-exposure HDR shot, and the overexposed image was shot at 1/8 second. Did I mention this was hand-held? It took 6 sequences of 3 pictures before I was confident that I got one without too much camera-shake blur. And I was right- I got one and only one usable sequence. Nik Software DFine was used to reduce noise, and then Photomatix to create the HDR image above.
Technical Data: Canon 7D; EF 24mm f/2.8; f/2.8 at 1/8, 1/30, and 1/125; ISO 6400; DFine; Photomatix.
