1 Take sev­eral frames Use a tri­pod and set man­ual (M) mode, then work out an ex­po­sure for the over­all scene. Once done, un­der-ex­pose the scene by al­ter­ing the shut­ter speed in or­der to record de­tail in the bright­est high­lights. Al­ter­na­tively, set aper­ture-pri­or­ity mode and en­able your cam­era’s Brack­et­ing func­tion, then take a se­ries of three or more brack­eted ex­po­sures. 2 Blend the ex­po­sures There are lots of ded­i­cated HDR pro­grams you could use to blend your ex­po­sures. Pho­to­shop fea­tures the ex­cel­lent Merge to HDR Pro com­mand (File > Au­to­mate > Merge to HDR Pro). Se­lect the files you want to blend then use the slid­ers to con­trol shadow and high­light de­tail. Done sub­tley, it can re­sult in re­ally nat­u­ral­look­ing images that don’t look over-pro­cessed.
