HDR Field Museum

20, originally uploaded by gonzalezhanson2.

An HDR is composed of two or more separate exposures, taken at different exposure levels to capture the dynamic range that the eye can see but the camera cannot. the images are then merged with software that is capable of doing it. There are many packages that can merge images.

You can also do a simulated HDR, by processing a RAW file in different ways and then merging them. I’ve also been able to get a similar surrealistic look by using som alternative processing techniques.

HDR is when you take multible images and layer them on top of each other, each exposed different. for example, lets say you three exposures, the first being under-exposed, the second is exposed properly, and the third is overexposed, when you layer them you will have detail in the highlights (thank you underexposure) and detail in the shadows (thank you overexposed)…theres tutorials about right up there ^ under the ‘learn’ menu.

I took this photo at the Chicago photowalk 2008. Photomatix 3.0, Photoshop CS3 and Lightroom 2.0 were used to accomplish this effect.
