Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Merging an HDR, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- If you'd like increased dynamic range…one way to do that is to merge several exposures together.…Let's take a look at an HDR workflow.…Now, you might be thinking,…"The GoPro doesn't support bracketing."…But if you put the camera in a stationary place…and shoot something like a sunset…in the course of about fifteen to twenty minutes,…the scene can change dramatically,…and if you let that lighting change…and keep the camera stationary…instead just firing it off either using…the remote control or the app,…or putting it into timelapse mode,…it's possible to capture several different exposures.…
Those exposures can then be combined using Photoshop…with the Merge to HDR command…or with third party software like Photomatix from HDR Soft.…I've selected five images…that encompass the fully dynamic range here.…Now, you could choose to edit these in Photoshop…using the Photo, Edit In, Merge to HDR in Photoshop,…and while that works it's not the best results…but since it's built in, let's take a quick look.…You see that it takes the five images,…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
