In this tutorial, Oliver shows you his technique for blending a 5-shot HDR together with a flash exposure, creating a much more pleasing result than just using flash or HDR alone.

    I’m looking to buy a flash for my camera, maybe even a couple of stand alone flashes too. Any recommendations? Thanks

    • Oliver Pohlmann says:

      Try some of the asian-market flashes available on Amazon – Aperlite, Neweer. If they don’t suit your needs, stick with Canon/Nikon/Sony etc.

  2. great information, I’ve been trying to incorporate a flash with HDR and add the flash shot in the HDR group and then run it through photomatix.
    Did you bounce the flash off of the ceiling or wall or just straight head?

    What camera and flash setting did you use for your flash shot. I always struggle getting a balanced photo with flash. Thank you for these videos, they are wonderful!

    • Oliver Pohlmann says:

      Hi Marina. As a starting point, f/6.3, ISO 320, shutter speed set for a balance between good internal exposure and window exposure (in aperture priority mode start with the exposure meter at 0). Flash between 1/4 and 1/2 power.
