One Shot HDR

This was a one shot HDR I did manually of a bridal picture I took of Klarissa Adams. It was fun to try and recover a throw away picture and have it turn out like this! If you would like to see the rest of the pictures from this shoot, click here.

To do this, I did a medium exposure image with minimal detail in the sky, and some detail on the subject. In Photoshop, I made a duplicate layer and pulled the levels way down to get the color in the sky and masked it in. Then I made another layer and did the same thing only this time pulled the levels up so the detail in Klarissa would show up. I used other editing methods but those are my little secret=) It was pretty simple and I think the results are breathtaking. What a pretty bride.
