Ghetto HDR Composing

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography. huh, never heard of that before lol should have gone to school more some what occasionally… well i took was Ad.vertisement Design, 2D Design, and Fundamental Drawing only 😦 recently i just figured out what an HDR photo is. looks really clean!! you guys should check them on google images or where ever!! or is it me that didnt know about this? hahha. well, yea so i tried making one WITHOUT Photoshop CS3. what i used is Illustrator CS2 and Windows Picture Manager. yea, thats the ghetto way of making HDR photo (image).

HDR(ハイダイナミックレンジ)写真。?そんな事聞いた事も無いよww。学校とかもっとちゃんと行っておけば良かった。って言っても大学で受講したのと言えば広告デザイン、2Dデザイン、基礎描写しか行ってないし 😦 最近このHDRを知ったッス。超綺麗なんですけど!!グーグル先生とかヤホーで見てみて!!ん?もしかして知らなかったのって俺だけなの?笑。まぁまぁ。そんなわけで早速試してみたよフォトショップCS3無しで。イラストレターCS2とウィンドウズ・ピクチャー・マネージャーに2つでやってみました。そんな邪道(?)な感じで作ってみた。

here is the original photo i took.


and now apply the ghetto HDR lol


and here it is. un-HDR HDR photo lol i know, something doesnt seem to be right… lol but come on i dont have a Photoshop!! lol how can i make it? hahahaha i did use 3 layers of the same photo with different tones. and i just adjusted the tone again plus the contrast of the image after combining them. i need photoshop… 😦

そしてこれが完成品。HDRっぽくないHDR画像(笑。うん、なんか違うよねこれ…w。でもさぁ、フォトショップ持ってないんだよ!!笑。どぅやって作れと?笑。とりあえず同じ写真でトーンの違うのを3枚使いましたさ。んで3枚を合わした後にもっかいトーンとコントラストを調整して。いや、フォトショップが必要だ… 😦

tried another ghetto HDR process lol heres a shot i took at FD Redbull Championship.


and again… the ghetto process lol



フォトショップが必要です… 😦


  1. Yes you need photoshop 🙂
    I really like your humour in this post ! I enjoyed reading it ! And your photos are actually good, may not be HDR, but I like the movement of the sky that you captured !
    Looking forward to your future posts !

  2. You don’t need Photoshop to create HDR photos. Look at getting Photomatix. It’s really simple to use and doesn’t require PS. The only downside is that if you only use the free trial and don’t upgrade to the actual product, it places a Photomatix watermark on your photos.
