iHDR Workflow Overview

Heaven's Gate

We get lots of questions about how we blend our images. For photos with an extremely wide dynamic range – like the one you see here – we blend two or more exposures for a finished image. We use a manual technique that we’ve worked together to develop over the years. The process involves creating and refining masks to achieve a natural look. It would take too much time to explain the entire process – our recorded webinars teach the entire process in about 9 hours – but we’ve put together a brief video that shows our basic workflow.

  1. […] My personal favorite style of High Dynamic Range Photography is when you can't tell if was bracketed or not. Often when we go to the beach or walk around the city, everything will look exposed when looking around with our naked eye. This is because our eyes can always adjust on the fly to the dynamic range of what we are looking at. A camera cannot. So if we are able to capture the complete range of a scene with three or more shots so everything looks exposed as it should be, or as we saw it when we were there, then we can combine the photos so our final image can still look photo real without having that gritty nasty bad HDR look. This is what I think good HDR should look like and is usually what I aim for unless I'm going for a unique more surreal artistic look. Jay Patel and his wife Varina have a technique for this they call iHDR. You can read more about it on their post iHDR Workflow Overview. […]
