Multi-RAW Processing – Stanford Quad Example

Wow! Earlier this morning I wrote about Harold Davis’ multi-RAW post-processing technique. I’ve just spent some time in Bridge, Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop working on a photo I took on the Stanford campus in late April.

The results are dramatic – as both the color balance in the originally was off along with the exposure. Here’s the original – followed by the 2-pass multi-RAW version. Pretty stunning comparison!



Multi-RAW Processed:


Notice how the right side exposure has been corrected and blended using a Photoshop layer mask gradient with the originally lighter (and properly exposed) left side of the photo.

Many thanks again to Harold for sharing this technique!

    Scott, landed here via Chris Gulker. Like the pics. Tell me though, do you remember which looks more like real life ? They are so different, was it blue or yellow that day ?
