HDR Imaging techniques can often cause dramatic results

HDR Imaging techniques can often cause dramatic results

high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of exposures (the range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows.

Confused? Don’t be. In simple terms, HDR is a photograph made up of several or many different photographs all taken at different exposures. No other setting on your camera need be changed, simply set up a good shot with your tripod and take 3 to 4 pictures of the same object at different exposures.

Where HDR becomes HDRI is in the processing of your picture. Adobe Photoshop CS3 comes with an HDR/Tonemapping tool pre-installed and there are a few great programs out there on the market that blend your collected photos into one tonemapped/HDR photograph.

The above shot is one by Green i Design’s resident photographer as an example of how you can play with HDRI for a truely dramatic, bold effect.
