Welcome to the tutorial page of Behind The Lenscap. Michiel Buijse has written some photography and editing tutorials for your pleasure. As he’s sharing his knowledge with you, please share this with your friends and keep the train going.
Normally, when you do long exposures without any remote, your camera is limited to 30 secs. Some other brands have a limit of 1 minute. For Long Exposure HDR, you often need more then 30 secs to capture all your brackets. For example: When your basic exposure is 20 secs, your +2 exposure will be 80 secs. To get this exposure, you can put your camera in bulb mode and keep track of the exposure with a stopwatch. Most people will use the stopwatch on their smartphone to do this.
It is well known that Facebook does a huge compression on the photos you upload. Often the quality of your photos will decrease heavily. To prevent this, you need to reduce your picture in a certain way so that it is least affected by the Facebook compression. That’s why I have created an action for Photoshop to make things easier.
