I started photography in February 2012 and I'm still learning how to set up the camera properly according to the current situation and tools like Lightroom.
I own an EOS 550D, using the 18-55 IS II Kit Lens (sometimes with an polarization filter to minimize reflections on windscreens and hoods of cars), the 55-250 IS II (not that satisfied with it) and the 50mm 1.8, which is a pretty nice lens!
Magic Lantern comes in handy in some situations, but I'm sure I'm not using it with its full potential.
here are some of my HDR and normal processed pictures, I'm open to any helpful tips since I definitely need alot more practice.
this pic shows paratroopers of the 263th Airborne Bataillon of the German Army in front of Zweibrücken Castle for their 30th anniversary roll-call after 10 pm, so it was already dark.
It's an ML HDR autmatic created picture, processed with Lightroom and Photomatix, removed a twig, recolored the top hair of the viewer in the lower section of the pic and reshaped one of the soldier's torches on top of the castle with GIMP......I'm satisfied with it because the flags, soldiers and people were moving during the shoot
another HDR, sun was in front of me....has the drawn look which I like with this one
old BMW 3.0 CSi I found sitting at the road.....in Dakar yellow. I highlighted it with Lightrooms brush tool
some shots from an BMW meet at the Hockenheimring
my car :-)
did this one without an ND filter, got some really nasty edges around the trees and the building in the upper left corner, no idea how I can prevent this from happening.....
I really hope some of them are good enough
