Recently I’ve started shooting photos in order to try out a new post processing method known as HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography. It’s not that new, it’s just new to me. It’s been used by many photographers such as Dave Hill and Trey Ratcliff.
High Dynamic Range allows you to to show a very wide range of exposure or intensity levels in a photograph. You need to use software such as Photomatix or Photoshop to process your files but the result can be amazing. It allows you see more details in shadowy areas of an image as well as bringing back detail into over exposed areas of an image by combining 3 or more different exposures of the same photo. This is usually done by bracketing the exposure of your photos when shooting and then combing and adjusting the separate exposures in post production.
The photos on in this post were taken in and around Kirkland and Seattle, WA as well as Las Vegas, NV.
