Low-Tech HDR: Black Card Mask

Rush Hour (NX)

I’ve been following Ásmundur’s use of multi-exposure HDR for a while, but today I discovered Max Chu’s use of an older, more crafty technique: black card mask. The photo below show’s Ásmundur’s multiple photo technique, but that above is Chu’s. How he do it? Apparently it’s about the same as dodging a photo in the dark room: simply block the light with a card or your hand.

Grounded ...
