Peter’s Musical Glasses : HDR Portrait

Im in New Orleans for a tour stop on my Photoshop CS6 for Photographers tour.  I went to Jackson Square at night to get some Cafe Du Monde and some shooting.  While walking around the square I ran into Peter – a musician that plays musical glasses.  After listening to a couple of songs, I asked if I could make a portrait of him while he worked.

(technical info: HDR portrait – shot with Coolpix A. +2, 0, -2.  Tonemapped in Photomatix.  Splash of Nik Software. Final Edits in Photoshop)


  1. How did you get him to stay so still for the three exposures? This would be an opportunity too for a pseudo HDR? One shot and then change the exposure in Lightroom?

  2. Really cool shot!
