With the rain coming off and on, it gives me more opportunities to practice making some cool High Dynamic Range images
Now that I have my camera dialed in to take bracketed shots, I can get some interesting shots without leaving the property =D Above you see a quick run through a couple Adobe apps.
Here were my steps: Bridge, Merge to HDR Pro, Adobe CameraRAW, then Photoshop 13.1 proper
In Photoshop I spent some time dodging and burning while listening to some loud music =D I just wanted to practice using my Wacom Intuos4. I also got to take advantage of using the Tilt-Shift Blur tools on a Smart Object woo!!!
You can’t truly appreciate the High Dynamic Range without seeing the Normal Dynamic Range. This is what the RAW file looks like when you open it in Adobe CameraRAW.
I also wanted to show how much power there is in a Crop. I think I need to practice this a bit more with my captures.
