HDR adaptation in macro

Postby richardlbong » Thu Dec 03, 2009 9:02 am

I took a raw shot of this Graphium agamemnon agamemnon (Tailed Jay) and using the SilkyPix 3 Raw Conversion program, processed it with 3 different exposure settings, one normal, one greatly under to get details in the highlight areas, and one grossly over to get details in the shadowed areas. Using the program Photomatix, I fused these 3 photos together using the average settings and saved the resulting photo in Tiff format. I reopened this in Photoshop CS4 and using the normal processing of resizing, curve and smart sharpening and finally converting to Jpeg format for posting. Here is the final result.


The shot shows a marginally more highlight and shadowed details without lose of details in the standard exposed areas.

Canon 40D, Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro
