- Sometimes you can get good results…using the camera raw filter…to make multiple exposures of the same image,…allowing you to incorporate a higher dynamic range,…a sort of quick and dirty, or poor man's HDR imaging.…Let's see what I mean.…Firstly, I'm going to come to the layers panel…and unlock the background layer.…Now I need to make a copy of this layer.…I'll do that by pressing command or control + j.…I'm going to name the bottom layer shadows…and the top layer highlights.…
Then I'm going to make them both into small objects.…It's important that we copy them…before we make them into small objects…so that they become separate small objects.…Now I'll turn off the visibility of the highlight layer…and come and apply my camera raw filter.…Here I'm going to make an optimum exposure for the shadows.…I'll increase my exposure.…
I'll open up the shadows at a clarity of 25…and a vibrance of 30, and then click okay.…Now I'll turn on my highlight layer.…Once again, I'll access the camera raw filter.…This time, I'm going to make an exposure for the highlights.…
