In this tutorial I show you how to take make HDR images look even better.  I take a three exposure bracket processed in Photomatix Pro and export a 16-bit TIFF file.  This can then be opened in Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom for additional finesse.  Enhancements include negative clarity, a graduated filter, and a post-crop vignette.

  1. I am LOVING working with HDR – in camera (Nikon D5100), with Photomatix/Aperture and now learning about Photomatix Pro/Lightroom with this video. Thank you for sharing this!! My husband and I travel full-time by RV and sailboat, and now that we’re learning about HDR, we’re finding our photography is really taking off!!
