Best way of blending 2 exposures
on May 20, 2014 at 12:11:40 pm

Hi, I have some photos that I've exposed twice.. one for the sky and another for the ground. I would usually use HDR with at least 3 but do I blend through HDR with 2 or is it better to layer them together in photoshop and blend them another way?

Honestly it really depends on you, what you're trying to accomplish and what you're gonna do with it. If you're just playing around, I'd say just experiment with different things: try masks, layer styles, various filters, etc. If you want to do it as HDR, then try making midtone adjustments and then save and use the midtone one for HDR. I think with 2, I'd try placing one or the other, then drop the second right on top and erase to reveal or remove.

Save early. Save often.

Hello Jonathan, I get the full idea about blending the exposures from your reply now. Thank you.
