This week, I have a pretty well-known tip for the manual HDR types out there.
Back in the days, landscape photographers used the shadow and highlight sliders in Photoshop to get the more details out of their files. This was kind of like making an HDR image before “HDR” existed.
In time, some started layering files with different “exposures” to bring the maximum detail out of a file.
While this is pretty common knowledge for a lot of adept Photoshop users, it’s not a particularly common technique for portrait photos.
