What is HDR photography?
The human eye possesses a unique characteristic: it can perceive at a given time a much wider range of tones, colors and luminosity than what cameras are capable of capturing today. It means that a single photo will never be able to render what your eyes saw thru the lens in the first place, especially when confronted with a scene with a very large range of luminosity, typically a scene featuring a bright sun and deep black shadows.
High Dynamic Range -HDR- is a technique that allows capturing a larger dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of a photographed scene by merging multiple exposures of said scene. One of Oloneo HDRengine's major characteristics is to merge differently exposed pictures into a HDR image, then give you the ability to easily and deeply re-expose your image in order to recover lost details in overexposed and underexposed areas of your photo.
Three reasons to get into HDR photography
Take pictures that were simply impossible to capture before
Before HDR techniques were invented, a scene that contained a large range of luminosity between its darkest and lightest areas could not be captured accurately since you had to choose one single exposure value for the whole scene. Thanks to HDRengine, it is now a very easy and fast process to create and deeply re-expose an HDR image in order to recover details, tones and colors in overexposed and underexposed areas of your photo.
Edit and improve your pictures like a professional photographer
Many professional photographers and advanced amateurs also use HDR tools to edit single photos. This technique allows them to improve images in a very subtle way that no other applications can achieve. The unique brightness, contrast, saturation and white balance controls that can be found in HDRengine are exactly what you will need to edit and enhance single images.
Express yourself using HDR as a new photography style
HDR is also a completely new style in digital photography, allowing photographers to create stunning, unique images. Check out the many presets offered by HDRengine to see why HDR offers an almost unlimited range of styles, from the most realistic look to the utmost creative tone mapping style.
