Inside With HDR Contest Winner - Part 1

Do you have an alter life? Stanley Klasz does and in that life he makes remarkable photographs. Klasz is the winner of the 2016 Pinnacle HDR Contest with his elegant image of the shore of Lake Ontario. He’s an Air Traffic Controller who has developed into a skilled and artful photographer on the side (we think he should shoot full time). He’s only been shooting for ten years. We asked Klasz about his shooting style, equipment and the details of his winning image. He had a lot to say.

 

The winning image which is now the main image on our homepage was made on the shore of Lake Ontario near Grimsby, Ontario. Klasz used an exposure of ten minutes, eight seconds at f8. This was a sunrise shot that contained a high dynamic range that he mitigated with the use of filters and in this particular shot multiple exposures. He compositionally placed the sun just outside of the frame to the camera right.

Processing of the image was accomplished with Pinnacle HDR Expose 3 using two base frames, manual alignment and deghosting and manual settings in the operations tab. Further processing was done in Photoshop CC.

Check back on the blog for more on Klasz’s equipment and travels. In the meantime you can see more of Klasz’s work on his website at www.imageklasz.com.
