Looooooooooong time since this thread has been used. I have recently bought a new computer...faster, stronger, higher. etc, so have installed Photoshop CS5. I've previously done all my work with Paintshop. Photoshop is a completely different animal, and I am having fun learning how to drive it! HDR..High Dynamic Range has been something I have wanted to do, so I found an online tutorial. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy, as they say!
This is the original normal shot.
This is the HDR result.
The first pic is a one-shot. The second pic is a bracket of 3 shots...one under-exposed, one exposed, and one over-exposed. If you have a digital SLR, this can be set. Then follow the directions at http://www.graphicmania.net/how-to-create-hdr-photos-in-photoshop-cs5
HDR is best used for static images, scenic, buildings, etc, but I will try shooting The Babe, providing she can pose long enough without moving, for 3 shots!! The results may, or may not, be posted here!
