I know how to make HDR pictures, and I've seen a huge amount of HDR pictures. I dislike most of them. I heard about Exposure-Fusion, which seems to match my expectations.
There is one photographer that I admire for his indoors work and he masters EF : Andre Govia. But I don't know how to get similar results through the post processing.
Once you have your 7 or 9 (or more) shots with the whole range covered, how to merge them so that the final rendering could be as soft as Govia's ? And what about the vintage look ?
What I see :
- tripod, additional lighting, several shots
- pink hue
- less contrast
- texture overlay
Does anyone recognize some other steps and could explain them ? Do you recommend any dedicated software/plugin for EF ? What is your workflow ? If you could provide picture examples, it would be great ! :)
