If you have ever photographed a high contrast scene, you know that selecting the correct exposure means compromising either the bright highlights or the dark shadows without being able to capture either end of the scale for maximum visual effect. Enter HDRI as a solution to the problem!

High dynamic range imaging (HDRI for short) is a set of techniques that allow a far greater dynamic range of exposure than normal digital imaging techniques. The aim is to accurately represent the wide spectrum of intensity levels found in everyday scenes, ranging from direct sunlight to deepest shadows, by means of multiple exposures layered together. An HDR image offers the advantage of much greater dynamic range making it possible to capture both the brightest and darkest parts of an image without sacrificing one for the other.

In this tutorial you will learn how to capture HDR images on your digital camera. You will find out how to process these images in Photoshop and PhotoMatix to create stunning prints. Many examples will be shown, and appropriate subjects for HDRI techniques will be discussed.

Come and find out how you can make stunning HDR images yourself!
