Joel grimes

I know plenty on how joel grimes work but i cant figure out how he darkens his images without messing the pixels up. I know that he shoot a lot of hdr for his backgrounds but that shouldnt exactly get them darker but the opposite. http://joelgrimes.com/3/GalleryMain....&AKey=P7FJP8B4. This is just an example. Any ideas . Thanks

Re: Joel grimes

He shoots and post-processes his background separately from the model I think.

Re: Joel grimes

Thanks - i know but normally when u do hdr you often endup with a overall more light image . So either he shoot them in camera as pretty dark meaning in the dark/ hours of the day or he pull the curves down pretty hard ...

Re: Joel grimes

From my understanding the background is HDR and the model goes through a Dragan Effect.
