Re: Hdr humans

The problem with humans is that we are... well... humans: we move, we are never absolutely STILL so that the photos never match perfectly.

That is the reason why you get ghosting.

Re: Hdr humans

Is the dynamic range of your human so great that it requires HDR?

Re: Hdr humans

I apologize, I think my question sounded more cheeky than intended. Thanks for taking it well.

I guess I was questioning if you needed the tonal compression that HDR gives, or could you just composite your lighter exposed human form over the darker background. HDR isn't he only way to combine two exposures, and in your case maybe a traditional composite would be more appropriate.

Having said that, I don't find the degree of softness you have all that objectionable, especially at that exposure. Just looks like shallow depth of field, which adds to the moodiness of the lighing.

Re: Hdr humans

Thanks!!
I might be too picky I did some research and found this this tutorial on how to manually blend exposures as suggested..... its for Photoshop elements but its the same for P.S CS Series.

On the tube.....(you need camera raw)
