I always try to make the transition line completely invisible. Therefore - I do some local adjustment (dodging/burning) or use some parts of a different exposed RAW file (if needed) to make one photo with a proper exposure.
Let me explain one simple trick :
- let say you're using 0.6 GND filter (it means 2-f stops)
- in raw development process you develop one photo with no exposure change and another one with +2/3 EV (to compensate the filter change)
- in PS you put the darker layer on the top of the brighter one
- you add layer mask to the darker photo
- you fill the mask with the gradient tool
- you can do some local adjustments with a brush tool (on the layer mask)
I hope I explained it in a clear way :) If not - do not hesitate to ask me.
In some cases using filters is very hard and this is when HDR technique comes in help. I will show some of my results with my next posts.
