HDR Processing Video

on February 15, 2012

I created a one frame per second screen capture of an HDR image I processed for ipicture365. I wanted to share with my PhotoshopIsland followers. This is a demonstration of how I'm processing HDR images. I went through several processing steps on this image. I wanted to get a sense of how it actually felt when I shot the images. I was excited by the color play between the orange and blue. It's not a process I do exactly the same each time. I'm sharing my process for working with my images and would be happy to know how others process HDR images.

Shot on a Canon 5D with a Canon 24-105mm. As shown in the video, processed in Lightroom, Photomatrix, NIK Color Efex Pro 4 and Photoshop.
