Details: HDR (High Dynamic Range) automated software produces results that defy what photographers in the past would have thought possible, but these results are sometimes visually “over the top.” A viable technique to use instead of automated HDR, or sometimes in conjunction with automated HDR, is hand-HDR. Hand-HDR uses layers, layer masks, and the Photoshop Gradient and Brush tools to create composite images from a bracketed sequence that are completely under your control, and can look entirely natural.

In this webinar Harold discussed when to use hand-HDR in place of automated HDR, and when to use the two technologies in conjunction. He shows examples of photographing for hand-HDR in general situations, and also in high-key and low-key situations that are particularly suited for hand-HDR. Finally, time will be spent on the detailed tools used to achieve stunning hand-HDR results.

There will be ample time for Q&A.
