# 1 Reason to Shoot HDR

HDR Rocks.
Lots has been said about HDR (High Dynamic Range photography) on the internet. Seems some folks have a love-hate relationship with HDR: they love to hate it. :-)

Me? I love to love HDR for a very important reason – which is the #1 reason I shoot lots of HDR images: HDR lets me (and you) capture scenes as they look to our eyes.

Average Exposure.
For example, directly above is the average exposure of the scene in the Colony Hotel in Delray Beach, Florida.

Three exposures used to create HDR image.
Sure, HDR images can be overdone, or over cooked as some like to say. I have actually been accused of doing just that. See the image below. But heck, I was just having some fun and trying to be creative – which is what photography is all about. Right?

Hey, if you like HDR photography, as well as travel, flash, nature, nighttime and people photography, I'm running my Florida Photo Caravan again next January. After that, I am running short classes in Delary Beach: Digital Delary. Shoot me an email to get on the list for info: ricksammon@me.com.

Type Florida Photo Caravan in my blog's Search Window to see pictures from this year's photo caravan!
