High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photo for my Digital Imaging class as a part of my minor in Graphic Communication Technology. 

HDR photos are a composite image of the same scene taken at (usually) three different exposures: underexposed, overexposed and properly exposed. The images are then merged together in Photoshop. Most cameras cannot capture all the tonal values in a scene, thus HDR is used to “fill in the blanks” so to speak. For example in this picture, the window is blown out in both the default and overexposed images. However, combining it with an underexposed image allows for the contents outside the window to be seen in the final product.
