This summer I have a few goals, one of them is to learn HDR photography. I love to take pictures so this will be fun.
What is HDR? High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography is the process of taking several images at different shutter speeds and combining them into a single photo that contains no washed out or underexposed areas. The result is a surreal, almost too perfectly lit photograph that contains a high level of detail throughout the image.
Below are some pictures that blew me away when I first saw them. The seconded one is my desk top on my laptop.
