Is there a specific lens that does the hdr type effect or is it all photoshoped work? Seems to be quite popular in today's market. I will try to find a photo of what look im going for.

HDR is a post processing activity. There is no way optically to compress dynamic range into one image. It requires separate images exposed for different areas which are then combined.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

This is the look im going for. Any specfic light room edits or presets? Or would using a video light work best?

Like gjl711 said, it's a post processing activity, but you need to have the correct pictures taken prior to doing so. Since you're new to the forum, what is your knowledge of HDR, do you understand all the steps it takes?

Yes I have fiddled around just wasnt sure if there are any specific presets to be used in lightroom for quicker post processing.

It's more important to capture the base frames correctly. Expose for the darkest sections, the brightest sections, and maybe a few in between. It helps if you set WB manually unless your shooting raw and shoot tripod mounted to make frame alignment easier. I haven't used LR to do the merge but I know it has the merge hdr function.

You can create presets based on your shooting and what you want the outcome to be, but since each house is different based on color/lighting/etc... there is no one 'easy mode' button. I created one that does all the general stuff, but then I go in and do the final tweaks.

One CAN set a baseline exposure to


  1. capture the room light illumination suitably,
  2. gel the windows with ND gel to drop that exposure to suit, and
  3. reduce high contrast shows left by the room lights with suitably adjusted electronic flash


...none of it requiring photoshop, Architectural interior photographers did it with film, even the more challenging lattitude of color transparency. So you do NOT 'have to' Photoshop.

HDR techniques change the methodology, ridding the need for Step 2 above. In the days of film, the photographer might need to plan his shoot in that room to occur at a certain time of day, shooting elsewhere in the meanwhile.
Today, the best combination might be to employ both traditional methods supplemented by modern digital techniques, to accomplish an even better result than only-analog or only-digital.

The image you posted is "popular" only b/c it's a quick shoot and batch process in Photomatix. To be honest, though subjective, that's not considered "professional" architectural photography. It gives you exaggerated colors and looks very hazy and fake. If you want to work toward a quality image, take note of architectural magazines and learn to introduce some light if you can. If you're absolutely against adding in some flash, then look into more exposure fusion to give a more realistic look.

I was asked to re-shoot a property in my area due to some bad photos, here's the other "professional", next to mine. You can see how bad the colors were etc...
Mine are still "HDR" and for commercial shoots, that's where I introduce my own extra light, but hopefully a little cleaner/crisp look.

Everyone does it a little differently. I use 2 ambient frames to get a base exposure and I build on it with flashed frames.

The biggest difference I see int eh above exposures is correct white balance vs a very warm white balance. This is arises when you have different light temps.
