We’re heading out this weekend for a business retreat – and to have a change of scenery. The Rockies are beautiful anytime of the year, so we thought we’d head up to a few of our favorite places and try are hand at a new technique – HDR photography, or High Dynamic Range technique.
HDR creates amazing images – almost surreal – that gives you a sense of being in a different time and place.
HDR is created through tone mapping using bracketed exposures. To create one image, you end up taking a series of images – one at the correct exposure, a variety under and over exposed – and combine them into one dynamic image. The highlights and shadows are all represented, giving it the surreal look.

I pulled just a couple here to show you what other photographers have captured. If you’ve experimented with HDR, I’d love to see your work.
