Thankfully a few brave souls sent in their versions of the Automobile images I shot for out Shooting Automobiles Tutorial.
The first comes from fellow photographer and great friend Ken L.
Ken reminded me that HDR doesn’t have to be in color at all in fact it can look awesome in B & W. He also reminded me that it may be time to do a tutorial ON B & W conversion methods for those that haven’t ventured there.
Here is Ken’s take on both HDR Processing and B & W
Ken found good tonal balance for the Truck and also has great contrast WITH detail in the mountains which was hard to get.
One thing really cool is. Ken seamlessly MOVED the watermark to the side of the image away from the center that I had placed it. Ken also cropped the image a little more widescreen in aspect ratio for emphasis.
Ken, besides being a great photographer is also a Lightroom Expert so if you have questions about that program , he is the go to guy.
The next set of three images come from Miguel P.
Miguel attacked it from a few different angles which I really like. It shows that there is no one way to do anything and everyone has different styles and tastes which keeps the world from becoming boring. For this exercise Miguel Chose to instead use Nik’s HDR Efex Pro which was a great choice. I will let Miguel own words describe some of the things he did.
This is Miguel’s “Baseline” image
