HDR Photographs

The solution to the limitations of single-exposure photography is the second type of photography, called HDR photography. HDR stands for “High Dynamic Range.” Think of your eye as an HDR camera. Look at the corner of a window. You can see both what’s outside of the window and the detail of the window frame and furniture on the inside. As previously described, a camera without a flash can expose the outside correctly, and the inside would be dark, or it can expose correctly for the inside, and the outside would be very bright, if not completely washed out.
