So I’m super excited to try out this method of photography calld High Dynamic Range (or HDR) Photography. It’s really a cool technology and the pictures turn out wonderful (with proper technique). So here’s a layman’s explanation of HDR:

Have you ever tried to take a picture of your family/friends against a beautiful sunset only to have the sunset look great and your family/friend be a silhouette? The alternative scenario is when your family/friends look great in the picture but your sunset looks more like a nuclear explosion? HDR solves this problem by combining these two (or more) photographs into one exposure; the result is that you have one exposure that captures both the details of the bright objects in the photo as well as the details of the darker objects. That was a pretty non-technical explanation of this method but if you want more verbage, you can check out Wikipedia’s explanation of HDR.

I can’t wait for this weekend to try it out!
