Different Kind of Flower

The glare of reflected sunlight on the swimming pool was blindingly bright. There was a wide dynamic range of lighting levels from the light on the water to the attractive model’s face in shadow.

I knew it would be a challenge to capture this entire dynamic range without blowing out the highlights or losing some of the details of the darker areas in the shadows. So I set my camera to auto-bracket shutter speeds, and used Continuous shooting mode to fire off three shots in rapid succession.

62mm, 3 exposures at shutter speeds of 1/125 of a second, 1/250 of a second; and 1/500 of a second, each exposure at f/8 and ISO 200, hand held; exposures combined using Nik Merge to HDR Efex Pro and hand-layering in Photoshop.
