Re: Is this HDR?

I don't think people understand that if you are lighting a scene correctly (and correct is open to the individual photographer's interpretation) then you simply don't need HDR because you are controlling the contrast with your lights. It's basic studio lighting and I would always strongly recommend learning that first as it's part of learning photography. HDR is for natural lighting (or when you can't light or modify lighting) when the contrast range exceeds the dynamic range of the capturing imager. And IMHO good HDR shouldn't be recognisable as such in the final low(er) contrast output.
