Indiana Dunes country road, USA, HDR with orton effect applied.

The Orton Effect is taken from a Vancouver Photographer, Michael Orton. He used the darkroom and film to create his effect, but photoshop can do the same thing.

You take an image, duplicate it, lighten one by a few stops. Then on the other one you blur (gaussian blur) by about 20%. Then you copy one onto the other and blend them together.

I find I have to lighten it yet again. The only difference is that I’m doing them on HDR iimages and finding I get better results.

    Even though I’m working I made time to comment on your work.

    You’ve become a HDR expert Robyn, stunning!!

  • Well – actually – this was an HDR, however this is the ORTON effect, rather than the HDR.

    Cheers

  • Yeah – you’re not paying attention simply because men can’t multitask!!!! You need to give up work!

    This is very nice. Like the new technique. It gives a nice sense of depth and drama. Looking forward to seeing the next photo in this style.

  • I’ve done a few already but this was the best :)
