Our eyes can see a much greater dynamic range of tones in a scene than our digital cameras can capture. A way to capture what we see is to take multiple exposures of a scene by bracketing -taking one correct exposure and the one or more over-exposed shots and one or more under-exposed shots to capture the range of light in the scene. You can then merge these photos in a dedicated program such as Photomatix Pro by HDRsoft, or Nikâ€™s HDR Efex Pro. Other options include Photoshop and Topaz Adjust. We will review the in-camera process and the as well as the various methods to merge the images to find the one that works best for your photographic style.
