HDR processing can be frustrating, the final processed HDR image sometimes disappointing. In this video, professional photographer Steve Niedorf shows you how to make your high dynamic range images more natural and real. In editing, he starts with eight photographs of a condo interior, each taken at different exposures. He uses Lightroom and also HDR Effects Pro 2 from Nik software, which combines the eight images into a single image file that is perfectly exposed from darks to lights. Then, he demonstrates how to make minor adjustments with the retouching tools such as exposure, clarity, highlights, and color saturation. Join pro Steve Niedorf in his studio for tips on improving your HDR processing.
