tonemapping? (hdr with one image) or multiple exposures

do not spend time trying to work with HDR and fashion unless working with an enviorment such as the sky or what not, even in those conditions id suggest compositing the body and background.

In my PERSONAL opinion, using hdr with human tones are pointless. There isnt a 'high dynamic range' in the human flesh as there are between the sky and the earth. If you want the most dynamic range in human tones, the technical use of lights are your best friends. otherwise, tonemap. even if you can get a person to stand still for a second, autobracket, and merge an hdr, itll never be as sharp as a single image.

Jarulex, welcome to RetouchPro! You will not have to post your questions in more than one forum - just post it in the forum where it seems to fit best, and people will usually find it. If they don't - just ask again!
