Hot For You Rose
After my last post (where I mentioned HDR) I got a lot of emails, mostly asking what the heck HDR is! Here is a fairly short synopsis, with pictures. The basic idea is that it combines 3 photos, with 3 different exposures, into ONE, so (in theory) you get the best of all 3. Often when I take pictures outside, either the sky is white or the shadows are black, or both! HDR "fixes" the problem (FYI, there is software for this that is FAR better than what you get with the HDR setting on an iphone). But it can also sometimes remove all the contrast. Which is why I was curious whether other people have had luck with it. But it's maybe a little new yet? That's ok. I'll try it out myself soon and let you you guys know what I think. Meanwhile, here's a rose.
