3 Light HDR Portrait “Alice in Wonderland”

This week Joel shows us that HDR isn’t just for landscapes. Using a continuous 3 light approach, Joel brought out every last detail with a HDR image inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. The image of the “Mad Hatter” has a über-sharp and poppy look that accentuates every last detail, and makes the colors more prominent.
And this week, he brings in fitness model Amy Rose to recreate his HDR portraiture technique with some awesome composite volleyball images, and create some amazing and high detail portraits.

    It is rethinking the whole HDR thing for me, I never liked the color popping tone maps but since CR 7.1 and Lightroom 4.1 have the ability to work “natural” with a high dynamic range image in 32bit, it gives full power to work with all the information and not adding extra noise or crazy color look.

    Great information as always from what I was able to watch. One recurring issue is that since you have switched to your private video player for logged in users, I’ve had problems with the streaming video player getting stuck or crashing. I’ve tried both with HD on and off. I’ve never had that issue when all the videos were on YouTube and I used their player. Just an observation from one of your now frustrated fans.
