Here is another image from the Nara Candle Festival. This image actually surprised me quite a lot. At the time, the lighting effects in the trees and surrounding bushes, changed colour about every 10 seconds and at the time, my shutter speed was set at 25 seconds. So while my shutter was open, the landscape changed colour twice, which made each of the images a bit murky. But, in the Panoramic image above, I was using the exact same settings, but once the images were merged together, the colour of the surrounding landscape became a lot more stable.
So, while looking at this image, I noticed that I had taken 8 images in the exact same position and individually, they all looked unappealing and difficult to process to a nice result. Out of curiosity, I selected 8 images and then selected the option to merge them all together as a HDR just to see what would happen. Seeing as they were all a different colour from each other and none of them were particularly good, I thought the end result would be pretty ugly. You never know unless you give it a try.
Surprisingly, the colours of the end result, were stabilised considerably and it suddenly became easy to process into ( I think ) a good result.
So it goes to show, when it comes to photography, you should ALWAYS experiment, even if you think the end result will be ugly, because sometimes, you might actually produce something you never expected. 😮 #pocket_family_member#kings_insects_member#efe_nature_or_nothing_member#macro_globe_member#thiscanberranlife#sofranksocial#igerscanberra#igersaustraliaofficial#wow_australia2018#igerscanberra#pocket_nights#nature_or_nothing#efe_nature_or_nothing#mcsquared_daily#efe_snapshots_daily#great_captures_nature#capitaltoad
I would like to thank @teds_cameras and @canonaustralia for a great evening last night, with wonderful people on top of Mount Ainslie overlooking Canberra at sunset. It was a awesome opportunity to get some great advice on how to improve your Sunset photography and also, to get your hands on the new Canon EOS-R Camera and have some fun. Although I was able to give it a try if I wanted to, I decided not to try the new camera as it is an amazing camera that I will never be able to afford. To me, it’s a little bit like being a huge fan of a Ferrari and taking one for a test drive, only to find it is the absolute perfect car for you, yet you will never, ever be able to buy one.
So I just stuck to my Canon 80D and my GoPro 7 Black. This time lapse was created using my GoPro, consisting of 6,305 images. I was hoping to post this much earlier in the day, but I had a lot of trouble creating it because of old software that did not have enough dedicated memory to be able to make it. After 5-6 hours of swearing a cursing, I finally figured out how to condense a 3 minute time lapse down to a file lasting less than the 1 minute limit on Instagram. 😉 #pocket_family_member#kings_insects_member#efe_nature_or_nothing_member#macro_globe_member#thiscanberranlife#sofranksocial#igerscanberra#igersaustraliaofficial#gopro#goprohero7#capitaltoad
