I have also learned a great deal more about the subject, so I decided it was time for an update. What is HDR and why do we need it? I n this tutorial we will take a look at HDR photography. A camera is capable of capturing a limited amount of tones in a single photo (we call this dynamic Range, the range of tones that can hold detail between pure black and pure white).
