That question is as vague as the meaning of life. Revision3 created a video intended to give you the answer.
My thoughts on it: There is no secret. Every photo needs something different. Every photo has different processing. There is no truly perfect way to create an HDR photograph. If there is that I am seriously missing something. Watch the video and please comment with your thoughts “the secret to amazing HDR photography“
The video is more of a basic tutorial so I think Revision3 should have chosen a different title, but we all make mistakes.
How to take High Dynamic Range Photos, or HDR, like the pros. This technique creates stunning photos by combining three or more pictures of the same subject, but at different exposures. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make gorgeous photos, we show you how in this HDR tutorial.
