I was talking to myself about dabbling in High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) photography but for the longest time I was not know how it worked.
For those who do not know, HDR imaging creates a beautiful dynamic photograph that blends the brights, darks and colours together in a splendid product.
Often, a single photograph does not pick up the true image we see with our eyes. When we look across the horizon at a sunset, we are able to register the whole landscape with many degrees of shadows, highlights and colours.
When we try to capture the same sunset on a digital image, the end result is often disappointing. Without HDR imaging, photographers are pretty much limited to either a silhouette of the landscape with a dominant sun and sky (left) or an over-exposed sky with distinguishable features of the surrounding environment (right).
HDR imaging is perfect for creating truly amazing landscape photographs and I can’t wait to make more.
