New tutorial video on my website: HDR The Old-Fashioned Way With Don Smith

I’m excited to announce something new for 2012, how-to videos. I’m starting with a two-part series on High Dynamic Range photography where I show you how to blend portions of various bracketed exposures of the same scene.

Motion is the main culprit in preventing even the best of HDR programs to display a realistic scene. I will demonstrate how I deal with this issue in Photoshop utilizing layers and masks. Instead of turning over the process to an HDR program, I’ll teach you how to take control of every aspect of the blend!

In Part 1 of this tutorial, I will show you how you can photograph a high-contrast scene and not only make the motion look realistic, but also how I go about eliminating flare issues.

I’d love to hear any feedback you might have and any ideas for new videos. Eventually, I will be adding some location shoot videos where I will demonstrate various techniques in the field.
