hdr sports-style portraiture
Feb 7, 2014

Has anyone done any? I'm doing some theatrical promo stills and want to emulate the style (the play revolves heavily around high school football). I've got four strobes (AB400s and 800s) and a variety of umbrellas and softboxes. I'm an experienced portrait photographer, but I haven't ever done HDR work of any kind, and don't want to screw it up.

I'm guessing it's just strong lights, mostly equal in power, from each side and maybe a fill at center high. Any tricks I need to keep in mind?

Then there's the processing. I'm sure I could google HDR walkthroughs for Lightroom and photoshop (and I will), but if there's a particular tutorial that you found helpful I'd love a tip towards it.

something like this

or this, where the light is a bit more directional

Thanks guys!
