High dynamic range

I’ve got a lot to learn on making high dynamic range images—please send me your tips and questions, so I can share them here with other DL’ers. I do have The HDRI Handbook, which I’ve found a bit difficult to approach for getting started (and it may equivocate too much on the various options). As I learn more, I’ll share it here at diglloyd.com.

My most common application is to to combine 2 or 3 exposures, one for bright highlights, and another for dark shadows and one in-between. The Photoshop tools don’t seem to make this easy; I failed to create an acceptable image using the HDR feature, trying all sorts of variants. Instead, I was successful masking off the highlights using a mask based on the brightness of the highlights—see below. But what I want is a one-click tool that does the dirty work for me—isn’t that what computers are for?


Exposed for shadows (maybe not enough)
