There's a lot of information about HDR on the web, and even more HDR images.  In this Quick Tip video, I take you through the basic capture techniques, and then import the images to Adobe Lightroom and use it's built in HDR function to make the HDR image for final editing in Lightroom.  It really couldn't be simpler.  Please note, that my preference for HDR is a natural looking image, not something that glows in the dark or looks like it has had too much exposure to radioactive Cesium.  Personal choice that.

Have you been frustrated with HDR, or avoided it because so many HDRs look a little overcooked?  Does this simple method make sense and will you use it?  Leave a comment on the site, or send me an email directly.
