Copenhagen was the first stop on my recent trip to Scandinavia. I’d lugged my DSLR in my small backpack to take some photographs of this beautiful medieval city. Unfortunately, the weather was a little questionable, which is common for Copenhagen in late April. It even snowed two of the four days I was there (kind of a shock coming from San Diego). The sun still did come out intermittently and allowed me to snap some good photographs.
I’ve been experimenting with HDR photography (high dynamic range). I do this by taking 3 – 5 pictures at different levels of exposure (or stops) and then combine the images together in editing software such as Adobe Lightroom. I’ve include a few HDR images below. I’ll be writing a few posts in the future on how you can do this too (its actually quite easy). Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Note – The featured HDR image above was taken looking down Sølvgade Street from Rosenborg Castle Gardens.
NyhavnHDR Image – Hanging out in Nyhavn, which is undoubtedly the most photographed area of Copenhagen. It’s a little pricey and crowded here, but is still a great spot to grab a beer at one of the outdoor cafes to watch the people and boats stroll by.
Nørre VoldgadeLooking down Nørre Voldgade near Ørstedsparken. Copenhagen is an endless maze of gorgeous streets just like this one.
Amagertorv SquareAmagertorv Square in the Strøget pedestrian zone. A beautiful part of Copenhagen with shopping and cafes, but a little overrun with tourists.
