I haven't played around with HDR on this new camera. Decided to give it a go. From five images bracketed. Merged using PhotoMatix.
Did what I could to reduce that halo effect, but the solution eludes me.
Yesterday, Steve and I attended David Tejada's workshop, "Small Strobes, Big Results". It was a good enjoyable day. David and his assistant, Eric really know their craft.
The model is Jennyfer Mariposa. She was far better at this than I.
I should note that in this workshop, David and Eric set the lighting. I simply pulled the trigger.
