Experimenting with HDR and Focus Stacking

E-mail

Recently I made a lot of photographs experimenting with HDR and focus stacking techniques. Considering, that I'm not very experienced in that area, I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome.

Those are some of my first HDR experiments. I simply walked around in our cellar and looked for random things to take pictures of. Each of the following pictures were composed out of 9 different exposure times:


The wood saw is my personal favorite of the pictures above.

I stumbled across this drain, we knocked in the ground some years ago. It is now a living biotope for all kinds of mole and strange red roots. Make sure to look at those pictures in full view. They have an incredible amount of detail. I used both HDR and focus stacking techniques on them. The left image is composed out of 25 shots (5 exposures x 5 foci), the right one out of 30 shots (5 exposures x 6 foci):

And finally I made some macro stereo shots with focus stacking (no HDR) of some crystals I had lying around. Those pictures were composed using around 7-15 shots for each eye. You will need red/cyan glasses to watch them properly:

What do you exactly mean by HDR, i am planning to buy a Dslr, what should be ideal match for me, i just need for personal use, please suggest me some good one. To B frank i like Canon 1100D

HDR = High Dynamic Range: You take several pictures with different exposure times and combine them in order to increase details in darker and brighter areas.

I'm sorry, but I'm not able to recommend you a specific camera, since I only used the one of father. Although I plan to buy my own camera, I am not very good informed, yet.
