Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Combining HDR and LDR, part of Shooting and Processing High Dynamic Range Photographs (HDR).
There are times when I just love what HDR techniques do to one part of my image,…and really hate what they do to another part of my image.…There is a way out of this problem though.…You can keep the HDR image and composite it with one of the original…source files that you use to make that HDR. You'll get a result that has HDR in…some parts of the image and just regular R in other parts of the image, so you…get some original source file mixed with a nice HDR result, and that's what…we're going to do in this movie.…
Go to the Exercise Files folder into the Chapter 6 folder and grab images 9933,…9934, and 9935 and do an HDR Merge in Photoshop.…When you get to here, be sure that you're set for a 32-bit image and go ahead…and check Remove ghosts.…There was some wind blowing and my hand was a little shaky when I took this shot, …so I think it's probably not a bad idea to have the ghost removal turned on.…And when you're all done, you'll have this, a 32-bit file in Photoshop.…
And it'll look pretty lousy.…
