HDR is High Dynamic Range. It is a process where several exposures of the same scene are ‘blended’ together to restore the details that were lost by shadows and highlights in an image. There are a lot of mixed emotions about HDR, but to me, I find it to be very pleasing to the eye and I love the colour and details I can capture by using this technique. Not all of my photo’s are HDR, but a lot are.

Watch the video to see how I take multiple exposures so I can create a HDR image… I am using my D800 and you will see what settings I use and how easy it is to set up a D800 for auto bracketing.
Photomatix is a leader in HDR software, unfortunately, no HDR software has got it 100% right, I show you how to maximize your results from this step getting your image ready for the final touches…
