High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography is the process of shooting several images of a scene at various exposures, then merging them into one file. This produces photographs that are crisp and detailed, from highlights to mid-tones to shadows, full of drama and expressiveness. It’s an effect that is similar to how we perceive scenes with our own eyes, although it can also produce impactful hyper-real images.
HDR Photography is a comprehensive guide, written in a clear and jargon-free style, to understanding the techniques of shooting and post-processing HDR images. Step-by-step case studies clearly explain the theory and practice of shooting and processing HDR images, with hints and tips that help to avoid the pitfalls of this engrossing genre of photography.
