So my show is today, it is at The Cashew in Kansas City on 2000 Grand Ave if you are in the area. They have a great reception area that is just immaculate for showing work. I am stoked!
One of the pieces I am showing is a great example of the 4th step in my Creative HDR Process:
- Good Brackets
- Mild Tone Mapping
- Post Processing
- Creative Post Processing
This is one of my favorite pieces, probably because I know everything that went into it from beginning to end. Another reason, I love the highlight blowout rays that help accentuate the explosion tree branches.
This effect is actually pretty easy to accomplish in Photoshop without the use of expensive plug-ins. It requires a few advanced techniques, but if you follow along you will do just fine!
