While HDR photography has its fans and its detractors, just about every photographer loves having some control over dynamic range. Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC offer an entirely new approach to HDR imaging with the ability to merge multiple exposures into an all-new Digital Negative (DNG) file. This file gives you even more precise control over shadows, highlights, clarity, and contrast—with minimal changes to your shooting and post-production workflow.

In this course, Rich Harrington shows how to get the most of Lightroom's Photomerge command and its image development and enhancement features to get more control over the dynamic range of your images. Along the way, he provides tips for shooting HDR photos, creating black-and-white versions of images, and combining Lightroom with Photoshop and Photomatix Pro.

Topics include:
  • Shooting strategies for HDR
  • Sorting and organizing HDR images
  • Merging HDR photos
  • Correcting lens issues
  • When to skip auto options
  • Modifying the crop
  • Choosing a custom white balance
  • Using split toning
  • Reducing noise
  • Merging for black and white
  • Combining Lightroom with Photoshop and Photomatix Pro
