HDR mantle


HDR mantle
Originally uploaded by rstrohmh.
So I'm experimenting with HDR (aka. high dynamic range) imaging.
Basically you shoot three (or more) shots of the same subject at three very different exposures. Then you pool all the pixel data to create a single image with a ridiculous amount of color/light data per pixel, far more than a monitor can display. Then you pull it back down to reality, and pick and choose which chunks of color data to keep, allowing you to get full detail in both the brightest and darkest sections of an image, which you simply can't do with a single image on either film or digital.
