if it aint HDR, then its lighting effects used during the shoot and then post production with like unsharp mask and whatever else in photoshop.

check out http://www.davehillphoto.com/

you've probably seen his work, he uses a specific lighting set up, i forget the name, but also HDR and post production effects

It might be HDR but probably not. That treatment takes like 5 min to do

definitley not hdr.
Lighting effects are obvious. the shadows show it.
in PS. Overlay, Contrasting, Hard Light.
Maybe a Hard Grunge brushing on low opacity. Some lines are visible over the image. idk. i would guess he used a filter on it.

I use to think the same thing but if you're shooting RAW then technically it is true. The exposure compensation is only applied in camera after you take the shot. If you do this manually yourself after the shot has been taken its still HDR.

But like i said before these pics are just PS and topaz adjust.

It looks like the Lucis Art filter that you can buy for Photoshop. A lot of mixtape designers use it.

Because HDR's require multiple exposures (I don't consider 1 shot RAW "HDR"s to be real HDR's because if the information is not in the photo to begin with (i.e. blown out highlights) it will not be there when doing a 1 shot "HDR").

It is next to impossible to get as many exposures as you need with the person in the exact same position and with the exact same expression each time.

bracket shots. as long as the model isn't mid air it will work. i've seen many 'true' hdr shots with people as the subject.
but as you said i have seen some with ghosting due to movement

just use camera raw/photoshop and save 3 versions with different exposure levels?

These HDR's are fucking awful.

A perfect example of technology preceding taste.
