HDR Environmental Portraits | Shot with Natural Light

One of our most notable signature styles is the epic HDR Environmental Portrait. By backlighting our client and preserving shadows we can easily capture HDR in a single image. Utilize your histogram to maximize dynamic range and enable highlight alert to quickly see which highlights are peaking. We typically avoid bracketing to avoid ghosting and hours in post-processing and use these tricks to capture epic HDR image. Our suggestion: only use bracketing as a very last resort and under extreme circumstances to achieve proper HDR effects.
