Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video HDR that doesn't look like HDR, part of HDR Photography: Shooting and Processing.
As I've mentioned throughout this course, HDR can sometimes be overdone.…In fact HDR has almost become something of an adjective. People will describe an…image is looking very HDR or really HDR-ish.…That has led some people to think that they just don't like HDR and so they stay…away from these techniques, because either they don't like the look of HDR or…they don't mind it but they don't want their images to obviously look processed…or to be thrown into that HDR category.…I want to show you now that it is possible to use HDR techniques to create an…image that doesn't look so obviously HDR.…
So even if you don't think that you're really into HDR, having HDR techniques in…your toolbox is still a good thing because there will be times when you can use…them in a subtle way that gets you a better image than you would get without them…but without taking you into that HDR realm.…We're going to create an image that looks very dramatic but not necessarily in…that kind of overdone, texture-y, HDR way.…
