Fonthill Castle HDR Photography Workshop

The images in todays post are from our recent Romin’ with Roman HDR Photography workshop “From Output to Capture” at Fonthill Castle located in Doysletown, Pennsylvania.

I tonemapped the HDR (high dynamic range) images using Photomatix Pro. I further enhanced them in Photoshop CS5 using various plugin filters including, Adobe Pixel  Bender, Nik Color Efex, Nik Silver Efex and Topaz Labs Adjust & Detail.

The number of exposures for these images varied anywhere from 5 to 9 total frames. I really like the way the images turned out after tone mapping them in Photomatix Pro. But I wanted to create different looks and have some fun getting creative with the various plugin filters.

I am fascinated by this place and look forward to our return workshop visit this fall in October, 2011. For the history of the castle you can visit the Mercer & Fonthill Museum.  If you are interested in joining us or would like additional info, you can visit the workshop page or shoot us an email.
