MasterClass! - Adobe Photoshop HDRI Tutorial


HDRI, or High Dynamic Range Imaging, is the latest photographic and software technique sweeping the world. Robert Correll covers how to create artistically-oriented HDR from start to finish using Photomatix and Photoshop CS4. You’ll find out why HDR is a solution to the problem of limited dynamic range, see a workflow developed for the unique requirements of HDR, and learn how to select scenes with high HDR potential. You’ll also learn how to pre-process raw photographs in order to create 32-bit HDR files and then tone map the HDR in Photomatix (or in Photoshop CS4 using the Photomatix plug-in). To conclude, you will see several common HDR problems and how to overcome them in post-processing using Photoshop CS4 to achieve your artistic vision.
