A Beginners Guide to HDR Travel Photography
This guest post is by Sean Ogle who I first met in Bangkok last year where we were able to experience the fun which is songkran on Khao San Road. Sean blogs at Location180.com, a blog aimed at helping others create businesses they can run from anywhere in the world and also runs DailyHDR.com and HDRSoftware.com. He is an avid photographer, world traveler, and beer connoisseur. The photo of him to the left was taken by me in Bangkok.
How many times have you been on a trip, seen something spectacular, and rushed to take your camera out to capture the moment? If you’re like me, this probably happens a lot.
Now, out of all of those memorable moments, how often does your resulting photo actually capture the scene exactly as you remember it?
Probably not many.
Enter HDR Photography
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range – which probably doesn’t mean a whole lot to many of you. Essentially there are limitations with traditional technology that only allow your camera to expose for certain aspects of a given scene.
