Photography podcast #107 features an Interview with Canadian Nature photographer Royce Howland. In this podcast we talk specifically about how to get realistic colours using the HDR process. HDR (high dynamic range) is a process that allows us to capture details in the highlighs and the shadows of our images by shooting multiple frames of the same image at different exposures and then blending them in software.
Many HDR images that we see on the web have really wonky and unrealistic colours. We pass no judgement on these types of images but this podcast is dedicated to getting realistic colours using the HDR process. We summarize the process from why we do this, to capture, to gear, to using the software to create the images. We also discuss the differences between the HDR process and using graduated neutral density filters.
