DIY: Create a HDR time-lapsed movie

So far San Francisco based photographer Chad Richard is one of the very few who create time-lapsed HDR movies. He uses the new Nikon D700 that allows to take up to 8fps full frame images and post-processes / blend the frames into HDR images with Photomatix. Out of the about 1000 resulting HDR images he creates a 15-20 second long time-lapsed video with QuickTime.

Chad Richard has a detailed tutorial of the process on his blog (link below).

    We recently mentioned that one of us will soon be going on a long travel around this planet so we got a professional digital camera to capture some of the impressions and share them later.

    During the research for the latest in Digital Photography we also came across what is now called High-Dynamic-Range (HDR or HDRI) photography and tone mapping.

    There are a few pretty good tutorials on the web how to achieve these effects and software is now also available to substantially reduce the process steps required (If interested we can provide a list of the best links we found).

    But we thought that it might be best to introduce this technique by pointing you to the best HDR images and their creators we found on the web.

    So following this post we will put together a small series of articles for each of the web sites we found the most interesting…
