Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Comparing methods, part of Up and Running with Photomatix Pro.
…Let's merge five exposures from that same scene and compare it as a fusion method.…This was shot hand held and I'm going to fix the ghost a little bit…because the flames were flickering so they're…definitely going to create some ghosting issues.…Let's also reduce the noise.…Let's look at some of the images here for de-ghosting.…The flames are definitely moving and I can see some ghost issues there.…So let's drag that up a bit.…That's better.…I want to be careful not to go too far to illuminate the HDR effect.…
Let's chose a lower exposure.…That feels better for the flames.…That's really where the problem was, was the flickering flames.…Alright, we'll press Return to open it.…We're probably going to have some ghosting on…the flames but we'll live with that for now.…We can see if it looks good or if it needs to be cleaned up.…Let's go with Exposure Fusion here.…We'll go with the Natural method as well and brighten it up a bit.…Play with the contrast.…Bring out some of the mid-tones.…It's looking pretty good, it's a little bit dark for my liking.…
