Full Moon

I snapped this HDR photo about a year or two ago right after purchasing my new camera.

For those of you not familiar with HDR, it stands for High Dynamic Range and is the process of combining three or more exposures of the same image. The idea behind high dynamic range photography is to highlight the best exposure for different parts of the same photograph.That’s what I did here. One photo high-exposure image to capture the clouds, one mid-exposure image to capture the correct outline of the moon and one-low-exposure image to capture the subtle details within the moon.

I hope to try out this method some more come this summer. We’ll see how it turns out during the daytime.
