Experiments with HDR photography

Posted by Mark Sztainbok on April 11, 2008

While in Edinburgh, I decided to experiment with HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography a little.

In order to create an HDR photo, 3 photos are taken: one which is underexposed, one which is overexposed and one which is normally exposed (the exposure bracketing function of most DSLR’s is useful to create these images).

The 3 images are then combined using software such as Photomatix Pro, to create a 32-bit image which is then tone mapped to create the HDR image.

The images below were created using an exposure bracket of ±2. The original 3 images used to create each image as well as larger images of the HDR images below can be seen on my Flickr site.
