52 Week HDR Project Home

Welcome.

As I start to work on a 52 week HDR photo project, I thought I should update my blog to feature the progress.

So, what is HDR? High-dynamic-range (HDR) photography is a technique that allows a photographer to reproduce a greater range of light and tones in an image than a standard photograph can capture. This technique can be used to better match what the viewer sees (detail in the shadows and highlights) and can also be used to create images that become surreal in their colors and tones.

I plan to use this 52 week project to refresh my passion for photography, and improve my skills. I’m sure I’ll fumble around some as I figure out my path on this project, so hang in there with me. However it goes, it should be an interesting journey.

If you see one (or more) of my images in this project that you would like to own a print of, please let me know. I use a great photo printer who offers a lot of options (photo paper options, canvas wraps, etc.).

  1. Does your camera have a setting for this or do you manually change your exposure for the pictures? I have this ability on my camera but have not used it yet. Now I am excited to try it out!

    1. Kristina, my camera has auto-bracketing built-in (get it all set properly, frame the image, then hold the shutter release until all the bracketed images have been captured), and is a big part of why I chose it. You can also do it manually with almost any camera as long as they have the ability to do some manual settings. I’ll sit down and do a post on my camera, the reasons I chose it, how I use it and the software I use.
