08 May Free HDR Tutorial
Free HDR Tutorial for you!
I am not sure if you know this, but I use HDR to process a lot of my photos… I love HDR when it is done right, and my goal is to help you understand how to create a proper HDR image. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, I had many people ask me to show them what I did to get my photos looking the way they do, so I put together a Free HDR Tutorial that takes you through a 3 step HDR process.
Step one is capturing your image, I use auto-bracketing to get the exposures that I need, step two is how to use HDR software to make your HDR image, I use Photomatix Pro and recommend it, I have tried a lot of other software but like Photomatix the most. Step three is to clean it up in Photoshop, unfortunately, HDR software doesn’t do a great job in every aspect of the image, I like to use Photoshop to clean up and finish my images.
Today’s iCandy – Cruising
I have never been on a cruise and in two weeks I am heading out on a 4 night cruise with my wife to see what all the fuss is about! I took this image early one morning from up on the Harbour Bridge…
