High-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI or HDR) is a set of techniques used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than possible using standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. HDR images can represent more accurately the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, from direct sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures of the same subject matter.
Lets face it, last week was damn cold in central PA. Sometimes it’s hard to tell these things looking outside from your nice warm living room. So mabey a visual que is in order. This image was taken in Ravensburg State Park. Under the best of circumstances the park only sees direct sunlight for a few hours a day. Mix this with my schedule and the weather and the end result is a hard subject to photograph. 2 days ago the high temp was -3 degrees and today’s temp is 33 with highs in the mid 50s tomorrow with rain….
So I went the route of dragging out a heavy video camera tripod for extra stability and some extra patience to make sure I got the shots right the first time. Enjoy!
