My newest most favorite feature of Photoshop CS 6.0, drum roll please (oh wait you probably read the title), Camera Raw 7.0!  Adobe has done some serious work on Camera Raw 7.0, on the surface it looks very similar.  However, they have revamped the sliders in the Basic menu that allow for some serious Pseudo HDR manipulation of single Raw images.

You will be amazed by how much dynamic range can be extracted from a single exposure Raw file.  It does help to start out with a wholesome exposure that is not too over exposed or underexposed.  Check out this “before and after”, if you are convinced, check out the video!

Blake Rudis
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.
