HDR for photography is fantastic. With it you can get anything from a subtle enhancement of an already great photo to a hyped up surreal acid-trip version of the real world.
Video is just moving photography. I took the Grays lake video and changed it all to still photos in a directroy (45oo stills in fact) I then converted them to HDR in Mediachances’s software Dynamic Photo HDR. I set up a batch to do the same thing to all 4500 pictures. I then imported them back into my editing software and made them back into a movie. I edited out some parts of the original video because it did not all take well to the process. This post represents the effort.
My next step is to shoot a video from the beginning with the idea that I am going to make it HDR. There are just some subjects and shooting styles that will work very well with this technique.
The music for this video is Mellissa Hyman’s “Let Me Keep You”.
The music for the video is Justin Ewart’s “In My Dream”.
Zak Evans, my great CS friend from Utah ordered a box of random stuff from woot.com when I was there in December. I wrote a little post when I was intoxicated that described the ordeal. This is a link to that post…. <-be sure to read this post to get up to speed on THIS post.
This is the video of the hip-hoppin-hippies.
My aunt Florine has lived on the same farm for the last seventy years. She moved there with her husband, (my uncle K.C. (short for Kenneth Chaloupka)) when she was 18 years old. She is 88 and still does daily farm chores. This clip is from last summer when we all paid a visit. Here she talks about one of the tractors that has been on the farm for 60 years.
The trip down the highway 1 (more commonly called Pacific coast highway or PCH) was a fantastic part of my December road trip. The coastline is so beautiful that I was compelled to stop every few miles to shoot video. This is from the PCH near Eureka, California just after dawn on December 9, 2009.
Hi-Def video from Sapphire Beach, St Thomas, USVI.
Video edit that starts with some shots from St Thomas, US Virgin Islands, plays through to some Mardi Gras from last year then ends with more St Thomas and a little bit of Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. It is a year old. It has never been posted here so from that standpoint it is still new!
Look for more HD video in the coming weeks.
