HDR Photography (High Dynamic Range) is when you take the same exact picture in several different exposures and then merge them together. I use the HDR technique for two different reasons….
1. because I want to create a really dynamic, different picture
2. if I have a bad lighting issue when photographing an interior and I need to be able to correctly expose the outside as well as the inside.
These next images were created because we wanted something different for the cover of a rental magazine.
A few tips I have found helpful when creating an HDR image…..
1.) make sure to use your tripod so that every image is the exact same, just a different exposure. otherwise you will have “ghosting” in your final image
2.) Ideally you should take at least 5 different exposures, I usually do at least 2 stops between each
3.) Use the lowest ISO possible to cut down on the noise in the final image
Below are the rest of the pictures that are possibilities for the brochure cover that are not HDR…… which is your favorite?
