When I take images for composing a HDR image later how can I use an ND-Filter. For example I capture 5 images whitout an Filter and then add for the 6 and 7 shot a 10 Stop ND-Filter how can I tell the composing software (in my case Lightroom) that I used a 10 Stop-ND filter for the last two images.

AFAIK Lighroom needs to know the Exposure value of every pixel for composing a HDR image. And the exposure value would be wrong if I use a ND-Filter since the camera "does not know" about the filter and cant write it into metadata.


Lightroom should have somewhere you can type in the EV. If it doesn't, you can use ExifTool to set it.

exiftool -exposurecompensation=-10 image.ext
