[BTS] Pfeiffer Beach

This shot, as you can guessed, is an HDR image. Meaning it is a composite image that i created with 9 different shots.

I didn't bring a tripod that day because I didn't expect to be shooting a landscape HDR that day, and I wasn't driving my car which usually has all my gears. But I did bring my landscape lens, 16-35mm f/4.0.

To prepare for this shot, I used an NDR filter to make the sky even darker. Since I am shooting at direct sunlight, even shooting at F/22 and ISO 31 wasn’t enough. I also used a release cable, it serves two functions:

[if !supportLists]1. [endif]Extend the exposure time.

[if !supportLists]2. [endif]Avoid the camera shake from pressing the button

(Another way to do this is by setting the camera on a timer)

Once I got back to my computers, I imported the 9 shots of photos with different exposures, and then combine them using HDR software. After that, it’s just final adjustments with some color correction to create this beautiful shot.
