Taipei 101 (interior) for Discover Taipei Magazine

Last Friday I had the assignment to shot the interior of the Taipei 101 building for Discover Taipei Magazine. The editor wanted me to empathize the curves of the building’s interior which are symbolic to its design. In addition, I made an effort to shoot in exposure bracketing and produce HDR photography.

Shooting HDR is very tricky. The basic concept of HDR is to shoot three or more frames of the same subject in different aperture settings and then merge the three images together using a digital editing program such as Photomatics. Interior shots are difficult because the light bounces everywhere. Even when using a tripod I found a lot of noise in the final images. However, the photographs that were successful using HDR are more vivid and have a greater depth of field than those in my regular setting. What do you think?….

    i’ve been hearing a lot about HDR here and there, but I must admit to knowing very little about the process. I’ve seen some amazing HDR pictures. They look quite fantastical. There is a flickr group for HDR you should check out.

    i also just heard about a new Photoshop plug-in that gets rid of low-light noise. i will look into it and let you know if it works!

    PS i love LOVE!

    HDR is cool but it is very tricky Lisa. If you notice most of the gorgeous shots we see on flickr and zooomr are composed and not really that spontaneous. That does not mean that they are not breathtaking photos, but you do really need to consider your light source and use it sparingly.

    Again, interior shots or anything with too much reflection or movement will most likely not work out. Outdoor scenes with few light sources, simple shapes, and texture seem to be the way to go.

    Let me know how thinks work out with your Photoshop plug in!
