Believe me, no one wants their photos to look just…weird. Which unfortunately is what many HDR images look like, but not all, thankfully.
Before heading out and bracketing your exposures full steam ahead, it's important to layout what the foundations of HDR photography are and to understand some of these HDR photography tips.
HDR imaging is a process where the photographer takes multiple exposures of the same image with different exposure values (a range of bracketed images) and blends them together.
Most of the time, it is three exposures (one underexposed, one correctly exposed and one overexposed) or five exposures (two underexposed, one correctly exposed and two overexposed). These are then merged using software to create the final photograph.
