Photo by Mr Bones - No exposure settings supplied Today, as a followup to our post earlier in the week A Beginners Guide to Capturing Motion in Your Photography I want to post a series of posts from Flickr that all illustrate a variation on the same theme – movement. The following shots are all of moving subjects where the photographer has made the choice to set their camera to capture the movement as blur rather than freezing it. This is in all cases by choosing (or letting the camera choose) a ‘slow’ shutter speed (although by slow you’ll see that the speeds (noted under each image) vary from anything from 1/30 second to up to 40 minutes).

The software I use for all my HDR work is Photomatix Pro by HDRsoft .
welcome to the first of hopefully many tutorials on thinsite. i often get the same questions from different people so in the spirit of sharing i’m going to offer full disclosure on how some of the images on thinsite are created from beginning to end. bitchin’! capturing hdr shots technically, a tripod will make any hdr shot better, but i really hate using a tripod so i’ll often just machine gun it if there’s enough light to handhold three quick shots. in a situation like this there’s no way i could get away with handholding it so out came the tripod and remote. i set my bracket as wide as my camera will go and manually underexposed by a 1 1/3 stops cause in this shot there was only about a half hour left of light and wanted to capture the fact that it was sunset.
Whether making your own lens hood to create custom bokeh, breathing like a sniper to get a blur-free photo, or angling your body to look the best in pictures, we shared some great photography hacks this year.

In this HDR tutorial you’ll find out how to create HDR photos using Qtpfsgui and GIMP (you can use Photoshop as well). Both Qtpfsgui and GIMP are free, open source and available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. With free Qtpfsgui you can get more impressive HDR photos than with paid HDR software competitors.
HDR can make the ugliest, run down, industrialized cities seem appealing and beautiful.
