Download Multishot-Techniken in der Fotografie: Hochwertige Aufnahmen by Jürgen Gulbins,Rainer Gulbins PDF

By Jürgen Gulbins,Rainer Gulbins

Die Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten einer fotografischen Aufnahme sind limitiert. Die Wiedergabe dessen, was once wir visuell wahrnehmen ist nur sehr begrenzt möglich. Der Tonwertumfang der Szene, der Blickwinkel, die Auflösung oder die Schärfentiefe wie wir sie sehen, können nur teilweise von der Kamera erfasst werden.

Um diese technischen Grenzen unserer Kamera zu überwinden oder zu umgehen, kann guy mehrere Einzelaufnahmen erzeugen und zu einem einzigen hochwertigen Bild verarbeiten. Diese Verfahren werden als Multishot-Techniken bezeichnet.

Diese Multishot-Techniken ermöglichen es – teilweise auch in Kombination, den Tonwertumfang zu erweitern, das Rauschen zu reduzieren, die Tiefenschärfe zu vergrößern oder den Blickwinkel zu erweitern.

Die Autoren setzen für die unterschiedlichen Aufgaben verschiedene Programme ein, darunter Photoshop, Lightroom sowie einige HDR-, landscape- und Focus-Stacking-Programme, erklären die geeigneten Aufnahmetechniken, die Technik der Bildkombination mit Vor- und Nachbearbeitung und illustrieren dies anhand zahlreicher Beispiele. Das abschließende Kapitel zum Postprocessing zeigt einige Methoden, die häufig für die finale Bildoptimierung benötigt werden, sei es zum Anheben des lokalen Bildkontrasts, zum selektiven Abwedeln und Nachbelichten oder zum globalen und selektiven Schärfen. Auch Luminanzmasken werden behandelt.

Das Buch setzt Grundkenntnisse der digitalen Fotografie voraus und eine Kamera, die sich manuell einstellen lässt.
