Do’s & Don’ts of HDR Photography?

HDR stands for High-dynamic-range imaging or HDRI this is a set of methods used in photography to capture a greater range between light and dark areas of an image than many of the standard digital imaging methods are capable of producing.

Non-HDR cameras take pictures at one exposure level with a limited contrast range which results in loss of detail especially in bright or dark areas of a picture. HDR compensates for the loss of detail by taking multiple pictures at different exposure levels and putting them together to produce a picture that is representative in both dark and bright areas.
