"Black and White HDR with D7000"


US
          

Hi all,

Been checking a lot of books out at the library in anticipation of a summer full of great shooting with my new Nikon D7000. I've been reading a lot about HDR and how to process it, etc.

Here is my first attempt at the process for a black and white portrait, using a single exposure as HDR. Would love to hear any feedback you have.

Happy shooting!

It is a nice image of your son. I couldn't get the before/after mouse over to work on your website, so maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see anything in your HDR image that couldn't have been accomplished with "normal" adjustments to the original, especially if you'd taken the shot in RAW. The only difference that I can see is that the HDR image has slightly less contrasty midtones than the original; there still are blown highlights and black shadows. A "one shot" HDR, in my understanding, is usually best done by starting with a RAW image as one can recover highlights and shadows more readily.

Alan, the images are fairly large, so give the mouse-over a minute to d/l the photo. I suspect you are right about the how/why since I am so new to this stuff
