    Forgive me for not using the right terms, I hope you can see through the words and offer some guidance.

    I'm trying to 'light-paint' not with a single long exposure but with the flash pointed in a different area for multiple images and then edit them into one image.

    Here is an image I have made -

    I did this by shooting 10-15 shots with the flash pointed in random areas and then auto-align & auto-blend

    I know there is a way to do this with layer masks so I have more control, I've played with the masks to do it and I can't match the effect that CS5.5 does on it's own.

    Any tips or suggestions you can offer would be great.

    An idea of the result I am after would be this shot of my bike shot by someone else for a V2Lab.

    I think this would come in pretty handy for that sort of work:



    The vendor's web site: Oloneo - HDR Software

    By the way, we're not allowed to post photos by others here, only link to them.

    The term you're looking for is "exposure blending."I did something like this with this photo here:[​IMG]Also, I do a tutorial on how to do this using gimp here.The process is a little different with gimp, but the general idea is the same, and should help you quite a bit. Hope this helps.
