Single RAW, Double Tone Mapping HDR Photography with the Canon PowerShot S95

Tesla-4-Final-BlurBlend+TopazAdjust-1024px

Last weekend, Doug Kaye and I attended Maker Faire Bay Area 2011 and had a blast shooting lots of images. I had both my “big” camera (Canon EOS 5D Mark II) and my “little” camera (Canon PowerShot S95) – shooting in RAW on both.

The image above is one from my little S95 – of a Tesla Coil machine (or some such – no quite sure what to call it!) taken outdoors at the Faire. It was a single image RAW file. To post-process the image, I went through three additional steps – tone mapping, double tone mapping, and then final adjustments/tweaks in PhotoShop.

You can follow each of the steps by viewing each of the four images in this set on Flickr and reading the description where I describe each step.

Hope you find it interesting!
