how do you do this? i have been wanting to know forever and havent been able to find any good info on it. i always see people doing that horrible hdr where everything looks completely fake and blahh, there are few doing it the right way like you...




you can do similar HDR style effects, by using your shadow/highlight tool.

you bring out some of the values int he darks, and then darken the values in the highlights,

and it will give the "dynamic range" to the photos.

then sharpen some and desaturate to desired effect.

Most of the people I work with are, shall we say, characters. That is Patrick, front man and brains behind the band Pataphysics. Moments before this, he was reading from this book about "new sin" to a few of our customers. It was like some sort of creepy tent revival. He liked this picture so much that he is gonna bring the rest of the band to work to take some pictures while we work tomorrow.


The best part of it is that we won't get in trouble for fucking around on the clock. Our district manager came in a few moments before I took this picture. The following conversation transpired:


DM: What are you guys doing?

*Everyone stares at the floor. I snap off a shot of him*

Me: I'm just teaching these guys how to use Nikon's on-camera flash commander.

*I scroll through a few pictures for him*

DM: Wow! Where did you learn this stuff?

Me: Here. It's been slow and the store is in good shape, so I just started reading up.

DM: Is this gonna help you sell more product?

Me: Damn right it is!

DM: Well keep up the good work, guys. Nice pictures by the way.



Seriously, this guy is a hard-ass, but he loved these pictures. I was sooooo stoked.
