I want to combine several exposures into one HDR, but I don't want to use the functions inside of Photoshop (merge to HDR) or Photomatix. I would like to combine these images manually. How is this done? My thoughts...

Three photos on different layers inside of a 32 bit project of After Effects or Photoshop (first +2EV, second 0EV, third -2EV)
- Swith the blending mode to add and adjust the overall exposure down using an adjustment layer
OR
- Adjust the opacity of all layers (100/3 = 33.3; therefore each layer would be 33.33% opaque)
OR
- Is there another blend mode that would allow me to combine these exposures?

Why do you not want to use the built in features of photoshop pr photomatix. The tone mapping features alone in photomatix are worth getting the app.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!
