Canon 550D T2i HDR Tutorial and Some Cool Video Footage

HDR stills with some cool footage from the 4th of July weekend.


I was up in the mountains over the 4th of July and got some cool video footage using my ND filter from Light Craft Workshop and my Canon T2i 550d. One of these days I will have to do a review on the ND filter because it works so well for capturing those great shallow DOF outside shots. I want to get better at HDR with my Canon so in this video I show you another attempt which I think came out pretty good this time. This entire video was shot with the Canon 28-135mm lens – all hand held with no special stabilization rig hardware. The IS and using slow motion can give you really good smooth hand held shots.

If you like you can see how I have progressed in my HDR by watching old versions of my HDR tutorials. I also used the Rode Videomic on the opening of this video, there was a slight breeze but the wind screen on the mic worked well. The bass response of this mic always amazes me even when I have it a good distance from my mouth. No audio processing was used on the audio channel for this video at the beginning.
