Gritty HDR Effect Photoshop Tutorial

In today’s Adobe Photoshop tutorial we’re going to play around with some filters and adjustments to create a gritty HDR style photo effect. This effect works great with street photography, urban images and any pictures that would be enhanced with a grungy mood with harsh contrast and sharp details. Typically, HDR images are created by shooting a range of exposures and combining them in Lightroom or Photoshop, but today’s tutorial will look at some filters that mimic HDR aesthetics and produce an effect that can be applied to standard images.
