Westfield HDR photography

West Front v3

This week we looked at HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography. Unlike our eyes, cameras cannot capture a dynamic wide range of colours ( light to dark). At default cameras pick a middle range which drops the brightest and darkest colours. With HDR photography we take a minimum of 3 photos one at the default middle range, 1 with over-exposure and 1 with under-exposure. This allows us to capture the full information and by merging the 3 photos we create a single superior photo. Today’s lesson the students looked at the HDR methods, advantages and drawbacks then went outside to have a go at HDR photography. These shots are taken by the Westfield students.
