Dragon Dance #2

Kobe, Japan


  1. Interesting !
    It looks like a movie.
    I wonder how to take it.

  2. Thanks Anzu, so my newish camera is the Sony Nex-5 D which has a feature where HDR photos are created by taking 3 images at various (bracketed) apertures and stitches them together in-camera. A particularity of this feature is that if the action of the image is fast, and the initial f-stop is low, the subject has moved between each frame, creating this illusion of movement. The same process can be done in a photo lab with negative sandwiching, or in Photoshop. I mostly use Picasa for basic image correction and rarely use photoshop anymore.
