This is a tutorial for creating an HDR image by combining a B&W (luminance / lightness / brightness) layer with the original color image layer set to “Color” blend mode.
This is created for intermediate to advanced photographers and Photoshop users. You should be comfortable using a tripod and full manual exposure settings (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, etc.). In Photoshop you should be comfortable using adjustment layers, layer masks, blend modes and levels. It will also require the HDR EFEX 2 Pro Plugin.♦ End
