How To Create HDR Photos Without Doing HDR – Fab 012

By Louise

When I first saw HDR (high dynamic range) photos, I was amazed.

But when I figured out how to create them, I was less enthusiastic. It was a bit too complicated to do all the time.

Gary Crabbe, a California-based landscape photographer, showed me the solution to this a few weeks ago when I chatted with him at an event.

Gary explained to me that the dynamic range on a lot of the DSLRs like the Nikon D800 or the D810 were so good as to allow you to simply move 2 sliders in Lightroom to create almost HDR-like images.

They’re not quite the same quality and you do have to up the contrast to compensate a bit, but it’s a quick and easy way to shoot things like sunsets, which are always tough because the brighter sky gets blown out to a white color losing that gorgeous sunset glow and then the foreground turns into a dark mess.

So, let me show you what I managed to do in Lightroom with some sunset shots I took at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve in California last weekend.

If you’re listening to the audio version and want to see the images, then please check out the video and post at:
