HDR Photography

What is High Dynamic Range or HDR photography? 

Simply put, a high dynamic range photograph uses multiple images of different exposures to capture the full range of tones within the scene.

Why create HDR photos?

High Dynamic Range (HDR) photos might be the most fun for me to create. I like to see my photographs come to life when they have a large span of tones and beautiful pop of color.


Most HDR images can usually be identified by their color-saturated 'crunchy' qualities. I aim for my photos to fall somewhere in the middle of that end of the spectrum and the accurate end. When photographing for this kind of image, I usually capture anywhere from three to five separate images. However, there are computer programs out there that can create the "HDR look" from a single image alone. Any underwater image shown in this portfolio is of the single-image variety.

Any print from the HDR Photography Collection is available at the Gallery Store for purchase. Here are some items that you might also be interested in:
