Learn Lightroom 5 - Part 15: Create An HDR Like Effect With Lightroom (Training Tutorial)

You can't process multiple bracketed photos into a single HDR image in Lightroom but you can easily process a single image so that it appears to be an HDR image and in this video, I show you how.

Of all the requests I get to do videos on specific subjects, requests on how to shoot HDR are by far the most that fill up my inbox. Admittedly, this technique isn't for everyone but some photographers really like the HDR effect and like to utilize it to obtain a surreal look to their images.

If anyone has a video that they'd like to see, you can email me at [email protected] and I will attempt to make a video that explains what you're seeking.
