Leica D-Lux 4 HDR winter photo

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I bought a D-Lux 4 after reading alot about this camera in forums such as this. I´m quite amazed by this camera! I´v almost replaced my heavy DSLR equipment! I take alot of HDR photos with it. Only thing I miss is to be able to auto bracket the shots in +2, 0, -2 ev (it´s only +-1), but I´v found a way around that. I have a sturdy carbon tripod, and I start with setting the camera on manual and underexpose around -2 ev. The starting point of this photo is f/8, 1/2000. Then I gently nudge the joystick three clicks down on the shutter speed, which is exactly 1 ev. Then I have at least 5 shots with speeds from 1/2000, 1/1000, 1/500, 1/250 and 1/125. I´m very careful so I don´t move the camera. That can be tricky, but mostly I´m satisfied by the results. Check out this photo to see what I came up with this weekend:


I´v tuned the contrast a bit to create deapth and a cold dynamic feel..
