Storm Coming in HDR B&W

Storm Coming in HDR B&W

black and white hdr or high dynamic range photographMay weather in the Arizona high country, Yavapai County, Jerome Az.  A storm is brewing and begins it’s trek across the Verde Valley.  I setup the camera in some windy conditions and began making a series of exposures, from under to over exposed, so that I may merge them together in an HDR or High Dynamic Range composite photograph.  I then took that photograph and did a black and white conversion.  I always shoot in camera RAW for these type of subjects then will select the range of exposures that I believe will be the best for the HDR software.  I use HDR Efex Pro to handle the HDR conversion.  It integrates nicely and works right from within the Adobe Bridge.  After selecting the range of images that I wish to process, I simply right click then select open in HDR Efex Pro.  I select the images in the list that I wish to process then I always select “Ghost Reduction Method”.  The last thing I want is an obvious ghosting between shadows and highlights and tend to scream bad hdr processing to me!  To do the B&W Conversion, I typically will rely on the onOne Software’s Perfect Photo Suite 8.  I can make quick and easy preset adjustments or take the conversion in any direction I wish.  There are B&W filters in the effects section as well as the B&W section.
