Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Tone mapping troubles to watch for, part of Shooting and Processing High Dynamic Range Photographs (HDR).
If you're interested in HDR, I'm assuming this because you're a somewhat…experienced photographer.…And as a somewhat experienced photographer, there should be some postproduction…habits that you already have.…Things that you just do without even thinking once you get into your image editor.…For example, worrying about overexposed highlights, checking to be sure you got…the detail that you want in your shadows, paying attention to the overall…contrast in your image and making sure that it's correct.…If you're working in color, checking out your white balance, making sure your…image doesn't have any color cast problems.…
All of these things are the normal work of a good photographer and they all…apply to HDR images also.…But HDR images have their own set of additional concerns on top of those…normal photographic concerns, and we're going to look at those real quick in this movie.…Before we do though I want to show you an image that we're going to be looking…at in a minute in terms of some HDR issues it has.…
