HDR Photography – The Snow Dragon
HDR Photography “The Snow Dragon” – Here’s a shot that I took in The Swiss Alps. The reason that I named this photo “The Snow Dragon” is because to me, it looks like there is a Dragon hiding under the snow! I wanted the image to look magical and mysterious to go with the whole dragon theme, so I added a little glow to the highlights in Aurora HDR. The photo doesn’t capture how enormous this mountain was in real life. To give you a little perspective, check out the tiny footprints going up the left side of the peak. You may have to zoom in to find them 🙂
Post Processing “The Snow Dragon” – I took three bracketed shots EV (-2, 0, +2). I used Lightroom on the middle exposure (EV, 0) to create a couple of different creative versions. Next I combined the original three EV (-2, 0, +2) RAW files into the New 2017 Aurora HDR and also Photomatix to create two different HDR versions. Finally, I blended all my different “versions” into Photoshop to get the final image!
