The set up was with one table lamp behind the glass. the black background is my tshirt. and to get the red colors i used 1 red tshirt, 1 red bed sheet, 1 red towel. all the reds i could find in my house. sounds tacky but did give me this effect. to reduce the amount of light i took the light shade of its lock and placed it slanted. Took it in JPEG at that time (about 2 years ago), only realised it after I put everything back, so there are some artifacts!
This shot was taken about a year ago, slight adjustments of RAW in PS3.

Well it is not that tough to churn out HDRs, the issue is learning what kind of scenes are suitable for HDRI. Scenes with a large amount of gradient high lights and shadows are perfect for HDRI. Clicks with cloudy skies, reflective surfaces, textured surfaces, multiple light strengths are excellent candidates. Once you get the right scene, again depending on your experience with a particular camera, you got to bracket your shots with the best EV shift suitable for that lighting. then its all while processing, just playing around for a whle with the sliders will give u nice hold over it. And yeah gotta keep trying
Thanks for the remarks, I find many of our friends here are not fans of surreal HDRs, I personally love them! Here is one more of the surreal kinds. It was clicked a while ago, with the Sony DSC H50.
