HDR practice

How long has it been since my last HDR? Can't really remember. The main reason, being that it's very susah and leceh to take bracket shots manually on my D40. Especially when taking more than 5 exposures. Yeppers, I don't go any lower than 5 folks. I found that 5 is the sweet spot. :P But the most that I ever did was 11 exposures!!! That one was one of my first HDR experiments too. It was a very interesting experience and it's what drove me to explore the world of post processing in the first place.

On another note. The Raya mood is fading away fast. For some reason, there're virtually no frickin open houses? woot??! I mean seriously. Where are the open houses? Where's the Hari Raya spirit? I want food dammit!! It's only once a year and I want to stuff myself full with kuihs and ketupat and lemang and rendang and lodeh and all that shit. :'( Open house please :'(

So far I only have one invite. Thanks Sya for inviting me. Although I don't really know how to get to your place tho. hmmm... that could be somewhat of a problem. But no matter. I'll figure it out when the time comes. :D

Another piece of news is the Hari Raya Parkour Jam!! I should make a poster or something. But I'm not good with Illustrator. I don't even have it in fact. lol! bummer. But nevertheless, it's been a while since we had a real jam session. Woohh!! photoshoot time. So here are the details:

Venue: Taman Tasik Titiwangsa
Date: 25th October 2008
Time: TBA

This will be a trial run for the actual event in November. So it should be fun and I hope more people will join in this time instead of just the regulars.

And that about covers it for today. And here's a photo for the night. An HDR I just finished fiddling with. Processed from 5 exposures. And no the teddy's not mine haha!!
