HDR Photography is high involvement in the sense that you need to know how to use image-editing software to create an outstanding image. You will need to use the merged luminance in your photo and further enhance it. This means that you need to develop the eye for good and bad use of contrast and color.
If you want to put an HDR on a paper or on display, you must convert the wide-intensity range in the image to the lower range supported by the display. One old-mapping method is the manual dodge and burn technique familiar to photographers. This technique is where you manually select different tonal ranges for different regions of image using a dodging or burning tool. Another solution is to use an automated tone mapping filter to reduce the dynamic range of an HDR image.
Overall, HDR photography can be very exciting because of the prospect of creating a scene that will look very different because of the play of the light or the merging of luminance values in the scene. The best part is, even beginners with a point and shoot camera can do it effortlessly. So the next time you shoot a scene, try to get several exposures of the same shot and do your very own HDR impression.]]>
