www.photoextremist.com This is a quick and dirty method to capturing an image with more dynamic range. Simply take one photograph of the thing that is super bright (in this case, it was the sky with the sun behind the clouds), then take a second photograph of the thing that is super dark (in this case, it was the landscape foreground), then combine the two in Photoshop and BAM – You’ve got a photo that is improved significantly. It’s recommended to use a tripod, Aperture Priority mode, manual focus, and Spot Metering. I shot these in JPEG format because I am lazy and forgot to use RAW. Using RAW would have been a good idea.

Greetings! Have you tried photo sfxart tricks (do a google search)? My work buddy Catalina made some awesome photography with their photography tutorials.

nice. muchas gracias.

Does the new Canon 650D not do all this automatically without photoshop? I think it takes 3 photos when in HDR mode and automaticallt combines them all. Seems much easier!

Really helpful

Yes, I do. The darkroom techniques, such as dodging and burning, and cutting and pasting, have been around since the beginning of photography. In the digital world, it is still in its infancy.

However, ask the average person what HDR is 13 years ago, and you’d have gotten a completely blank stare. Photomatix didn’t exist then, so it all had to be done manually with Photoshop or other editing software like in this video.

acmav289 says:

You do realize the HDR technique is decades and decades old? Not just 13 years…

chazcov08 says:

I was using this technique 13 years ago using the old Photoshop 6. So the answer is, yes. Any Photoshop works.

chazcov08 says:

The benefit from using this technique is that you really avoid that cheesy HDR look that you get when using some of the dedicated HDR software programs. In fact, this is what I was doing 13 years ago before anyone had even heard of HDR.

Bling bling on you’r teeth.

theharvester97 says:

ahh thank you 🙂

PhotoExtremist says:

It might be inside the camera Menu somewhere. You can still do it regardless if you have Spot Metering or not. 1 bright picture, 1 dark.

theharvester97 says:

i dont have the mode you change at 1:06 on my camera does this mean i cant do it ?

Don Kissel says:
