N.S.L: WEEK 72 – Adobe Photoshop CS6: Merge to HDR Pro

This is one I’ve been itching to try out for MONTHS!!! High Dynamic Range is gaining popularity especially with Faux HDR or HDR Toning Apps/Filters. I wanted to learn the real way by merging multiple exposures in Adobe Photoshop CS6 to get more detail and a true High Dynamic Range.

My first crack at HDR under really great circumstances. With a Normal Dynamic Range, you would not get all that detail in the “nose” or canister area. I also had some fun with the new blur gallery =D
