HDR High Dynamic Range
HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE IMAGING Session One>>>>
Many of you most likely know what this HDR stuff is all about, it has become more of the norm now-a-day's than ever before. HDR software now available through many software venues not to mention it's even being built into your point and shoot camera and many of the up-scaled semi-professional cameras.
So, with no further adieu I will give you the abridged version of What Is HDR & how does it works. This will be one of two or three blogs in the next three weeks so keep coming back.
Back in the DAY (I remember quite clearly) when FILM was the norm and digital was just a sparkle in the Eye of the inventor, Film cameras and now digital cameras captured a very limited tonal range. In a single shot it’s often impossible to get the full scope of details in scenes that contain extreme swings between light and dark. We are forced to choose where we want to retain detail; in the intensity of a sunset or its shadowy surroundings; in the interior of a dimly lit room or the radiance of the world outside its window (like in our industry of Virtual Tours). It’s usually a game of favoring one or the other, but almost never both. High Dynamic Range Imaging is designed to change all that.
The difference between the brightest and darkest areas of a scene is known as its dynamic range. Until now, we’ve been limited to working on Low Dynamic Range (LDR) images in Photoshop. LDR images are limited to a brightness range that is typical of what a camera or scanner can capture in a single pass, which is much more limited than what your eyes experience in an average day.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) images are designed to contain the full brightness range of a scene no matter how wide that range might be. That means that a single HDR image is capable of containing detail in something as dazzling as a photograph in the Living Room Looking out at the Sierra Mountain Range or the sun at high noon while at the same time retaining detail in the inky depths of a cave! This is only possible by taking multiple exposures (3 to 9 images) of a scene and sandwiching those images into a single HDR image.
EXPOSING FOR HDR >>>>>
HDR imaging is essential when a scene contains a wider dynamic range than your camera can capture in a single shot. In those cases, you can capture the full brightness range by taking multiple exposures of the same scene (also known as bracketing). See the results of LDR vs HDR
See you next time when we get into the nuts and bolts.
