La Moraga Airport Restaurant

Several years ago, the plain was my favourite transport to go to Málaga. But nowadays, I am using the AVE, high speed train. I shot this picture in one of my usual trips to Málaga, when I arrived inside the departures zone, I saw the natural lighting, the white tones of the beautiful decoration of this restaurant, so I took 3 quick shots with AUTO ISO setting and AV mode in my camera.

This gastrobar was designed by the National Gastronomy Award winner and Michelin Star Dani García. Born in Marbella, he delights passengers with the most Andalusian and Spanish flavours with very attractive prices: Cherry gazpacho, pringá (meat) croquettes, oxtail burger, soft white rolls…. as soon as you see it you will be captivated.

The Barajas Aiport Terminal 4 looks so futuristic and it is a great subject for interior architectural pictures.

Unfortunatelly, I don’t have a camera with low noise at High ISO, so I have several tips to shoot handheld for HDR at extreme light situations to avoid camera movement and have the less noise:

– Set your timer to 2 s.
– Set you camera to take continuously the exposures .
– Support your body on a fixed surface, put the camera on one or in any case, put your arms with the best position to not move your camera during the shooting.
– Set AUTO ISO to have the low ISO for a shutter speed that has not got camera shake.

Besides, during processing I select Photoshop to generate an HDR file. For that, I use HDR Pro, and select 32-bits mode and the de-ghosting tool to 0EV or the more underexposed exposure (usually -2EV). Photoshop is better that Photomatix with the pictures alignement, generates less noise and , from my point of view, has a better ghosting removal tool. Therefore these are the reasons to always use it at the beginning of my HDR workflow.
