High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI or HDR) is a way to "see" the most tonal range in an image. HDR takes a series of different exposures of the same scene and combines them in post processing to create a properly exposed image. HDR allows for a greater range in the lightest and darkest areas of an image. It allows you to view areas of an image that you wouldn't be able to see in a single image.

With software, we can combine a number of images into a new image giving a full-tonal range. The new image is closer to what the human eye saw when the images were photographed. Includes a discussion and demonstration of Adobe Photoshop HDR, NIK HDR eFex Pro 2, and HDRsoft Photomatix, just a few of the many software solutions on the market.

Photographers, today, are in two groups: those who use HDR and those who want to learn to use HDR. Be in the first group!
