HDR Photography - My First Attempts
HDR Photography is also known as high dynamic range photography. HDR photography is the process of combining 3 or more exposures of the same image. The idea behind high dynamic range photography is to highlight the best exposure for different parts of the same photograph. HDR photography typically works best in outdoor settings, or settings with a wide range of light and color.
The 1st photos in this post were taken at the West Hylebos Wetlands in Federal Way, Washington. The last photos were taken at Alder Lake near Elbe, Washington.
To all my "Plein Air" artist friends - using an HDR photo reference is pretty close to working on location!
I'm still learning how to create these HDR photos, and I'm having a blast doing i! I'd love to know what you think! Make sure you click on the photos for a better view!
