EOS_1213-5
Bettyhill, North-Scotland

High Dynamic Range (HDR) shooting is an effective tool when dealing with very light and very dark sections in a photo like in back light landscape photography. Using this feature the camera captures three images of different exposure in a row. The camera then calculates an “average” picture out of the underexposed, standard exposed and overexposed picture.

While it might be helpful to use a tripod when taking HDR shots, for this wide-angle shot I just held the camera very calm.

Below you can see the three “base-pictures” that led to the shot on the top:

EOS_1212-6
underexposure
EOS_1210-4-2
standard exposure
EOS_1211-5-2
overexposure

BTW: The photo was taken in Bettyhill which is in the north of Scotland. I used a Canon EOS 5DSR and an EF 24-70 mm f/4L IS USM at 26 mm. The calculated image had 1/30 sec. exposure with f/7.1 and ISO 100.
