The whole process of HDR photography is shooting a series of ‘exposure bracketed’
images and them combining all together to give a far greater dynamic range of tones than the
camera sensor is capable of capturing in one frame.
The technique is fairly simple.
– Make sure you shoot on a tripod
– Shoot manual white balance to keep colour temperature consistent
– Shoot manual focus to avoid any overlay issues when merging bracketed images together
– Consider the dynamic range of images that cannot be captured in a single frame.
– Bracket exposures by shooting manual exposure, or use the exposure comp control on your camera (if shooting aperture priority). Manual exposure and using a histogram will give you better
results and more control.
