HDR Photography – All about HDR HDR Photography About HDR Photography HDR is a great, fun, new way to take photos and capture the world around you. A sample HDR Image that shows off the sort of vibrancy and sense of living texture you can achieve with this technique. How to HDR photography “Anyone can do this!” What is HDR Photography? HDR is short for High Dynamic Range. An HDR image is commonly made by taking three photos of the same scene, each at different shutter speeds. I would say that about 75% of my images use the technique, and if you are new to it, then you may notice a slightly different “look and feel” to the photographs.

Tourisme equitable et solidaire, tourisme durable, et ecotourisme avec Rencontres au bout du monde A Brief History of Type Part Four: Modern (Didone) In the previous installment of this series, we took a closer look at Transitional style typefaces, so-called because they mark a transition from the former Old Style types—epitomized by Baskerville—and the subject of today’s brief history, the Moderns, also known as Didone (the terms Modern and Didone are used synonymously throughout this article).
