My first HDR attempt(56k stay away)

Here is my first attempt at HDR. They're not the best but I think they came out ok for not having a tripod. I just took pictures if some random stuff laying around on my desk. Let me know what you think.

Don't be too mean but criticism and advice would be appreciated.

All you need is a good camera that you have control of the exposure and Photoshop.

what happens is you take 3 (or more) shots at different Exposure Levels (EV). Then bring them into Photoshop and under the file you should see where it states HDR (High Dynamic Range). There are tweaks in this setting once you do it.

With your wife's camera, focuzed1, you should be able to do this easy.

For the OP, I would recommend a good tripod or set the camera down and use the timer button. That way your hands aren't touching the camera. As steady as people think they are, there will always be a bit of shake from your heart rate.

Or, Breath Slow, then take the photo.

Dude andrev001 those look really sweet. I would have gone outside but it was getting dark so it would not have been worth it.

Thanks for the tip. I have a tripod just not here at school. I just sat the camera down on my desk to take the picture. I'll use the timer on the camera next time too. I noticed in the one that you could tell the camera moved from where it was for the other two pictures.
