My 4 step Creative HDR Process as revealed during Topaz Labs Webinar Series

DOWNLOAD THE PRESENTATION

I have also provided the set of brackets I used for the presentation so you can experiment with them as well.  My 4 Step Creative HDR Process goes a little something like this:

  1. Good quality brackets from the camera – Good composition, free of camera shake
  2. Mild tone mapping- Not too dark, light, or stylized… Avoid over saturation!
  3. Post Processing- Noise reduction, color correction, tone curve adjustments, dodge and burn, sharpen, etc.
  4. Creative Post Processing- Dive into the creative realm with masking, vignettes, borders, textures, compositing, etc.

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.
