Messing around trying to do HDR with dolls.
The set-up gave no indication as to how the finished photo would turn out. I was just winging it. I don't think this set-up was suitable for HDR because it kept wanting to show her dress and hair as gray even after I dropped the overexposed shots. Then the preview kept looking way different than the final output. I finally gave up and let some areas be gray...there was actually light shining through the black backdrop in the fine tonemapped image.
Then I opened it up in Photoshop and there were no light spots on the background at all! In fact...it had that lovely fade to the right. There were some highlights on the top of her boots and I just applied a little gradient over it to dull them down to blend with the existing fade. The only other Photoshopping done was a slight crop and resizing.
The light across her face showed up in the HDR--it didn't look anything like that in the set-up.

I tried Googling it and nothing I've come up with so far actually explains what it is. *_*
After this Bunny the 13th will go Friends Only. I need to learn how to post one of those swanky Friends Only banners folks use.
