Why I Switched to HDR Pro for Natural Exposure Blending

Dustin Abbott

September 8th, 2014

Natural HDRHDR (High Dynamic Range) photography is a very polarizing photography topic…with good reason. When abused, HDR produces cartoonish images that are, frankly, appalling to photography purists. But a lot of the top landscape photographers have embraced the concept of exposure blending (using multiple exposures) to recreate what the human eye can see in any given situation. Here is a quick video tutorial of why I have switched to using Photoshop’s HDR Pro to achieve quick, natural exposure blending without halos or artifacts.  The great news is that photographers can get both Lightroom and Photoshop at a great price through the Creative Cloud Photography membership.

Gear Used:

Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera (Body Only)
Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Software for Mac and Windows (Boxed Version)
Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud 1-Year Subscription
Alien Skin Exposure 6
