How do you go about processing the tower window, given the difficult lighting? In this video, post-production instructor, Tony Sweet, explains, “This is the classic, high dynamic range situation.” The tower window glows with bright, diffused light, while the cell block falls to deep shadows.

You will learn Photomatix software and how Tony goes about tone mapping the image. That includes adjusting the strength, contrast, luminosity, color settings, white point and black point. The goal is to bring out the details.

Tony then transfers the HDR file into Photoshop to fine-tune certain, targeted areas for color and white balance.

Follow along with pro instructor, Tony Sweet, as he goes through the steps to arrive at the final HDR image of the tower window.
