It’s hard to track down the history behind High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography, but the idea has always been the same: to allow a greater range of luminance between the lightest and darkest areas of an image. So, specifically, this technique was originally used to take photos of indoor scenes with windows or highly contrasted scenes, like seascapes. It’s only in the past 20-30 years that it’s been used in a more artistic way (like mine!).
I learned about HDR photography roughly two years ago on a trip to Paris (an amazing place to learn!!). I’ve dabbled in it for a little while, but it’s only now that I realize how interested I am in the technique. For this Photo Monday, I wanted to share my latest experiments with HDR.
Enough with words. Here are the photos:
The King Car — View Large On Black.
Gotham Lofts Entrance — View Large On Black
Toronto under construction — View Large On Black
As before, there were some photos that didn’t make the cut, so make sure you check them all out on flickr: Photo Monday #7.
Have a great week gang!
