High Dynamic Range 0 images Created 4 Jan 2011
HDR (High Dynamic Range) has become one of my favorite techniques for capturing truly unique images. For those who are not familiar with this technology, The process involves shooting the same image as a series of different exposures. Up to nine images within a set can faithfully capture all the exposure values of a scene, from highlights through shadows. The HDR software allows me to merge the various exposures into a single image. The finished shot contains selected tonal values- bright, mid and dark, all properly exposed, from the multiple exposures. In a throwback to the days of film processing, the charm is that you've got to wait for the final computer process to see the real magic take place. The anticipation makes the resulting image all the more rewarding. Of course, you don't have to wait. Enjoy!
