Last weeks tutorial focused on avoiding the nasty halo byproduct of HDR tone mapping.  This week I am tackling how to combat them in post processing.  I use 2 methods to show you how to defeat them.

The first method will use a Curves Adjustment Layer to actually invite the halo in a bit more.  This is not the best way to defeat them as it is more of a, “If You Can’t Beat Em’ Join Em” mentality, but it works.

The second method will cover how you can do a faux HDR with the a single source image to blend them together.

f.64 Academy and f.64 Elite are the brainchildren of Blake Rudis. While he is a landscape photographer he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.


For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
