How do you process an HDR image that includes extremes of light in an old prison? In this how-to editing video, post-production instructor Tony Sweet takes you through the procedure.

He sandwiches the eight exposures into one HDR photograph, moves it into Photomatix. Using the tools, he pushes the contrast way up, then dials up luminosity to bring forth the blacks, and finally adjusts light smoothing for more details. A few tweaks in color settings and the HDR photo is complete. Tony concludes, “The final image holds all the details in the shadows, window and walls. That’s what HDR is all about.”

So get on board with pro instructor, Tony Sweet, as he processes the chaplain’s office in High Dynamic Range post-production.
