Cheyenne Canyon Self Portrait

Feb 9, 2010 | Portraits & People

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

y second self portrait processed in HDR using a 4 exposure technique I developed. HDR of people can be tricky, if the subject moves even slightly, an undesirable ghosting effect occurs. When tone mapping multiple exposures of people, the results are far from pleasant. A friend of mine calls this the muddy look, and he nailed it. No one wants to look dirty unless it’s for Halloween. This new 4 exposure technique combines the stunning look of HDR but keeps people from looking nasty. I’ll post a full article on this technique soon, once it’s perfected. Until then let me know what you think, is it too much or not enough?
