Using the Interior Spaces Well
HDR photography is great with interior spaces – if larger, the results are going to be even better. The perfect place to fit this example is a large church –spacious, huge, and picturesque. Such interior spaces have very dull, ambient light that could only cross through the doors and windows. In short, the exposure of such spaces is highly compromised. Even at its best, the camera cannot click a high quality picture in a dark room and will get stuck.
In fact, photography becomes even more challenging in a dark room because the areas where the light does not hit needs to be brighten up, whereas the lighted areas should be adjusted according to the lighting in the remaining room. Since the camera cannot determine this on its own, the results are not up to the mark.
HDR is the only technique that can fix this problem. When followed the right HDR technique, the room can instantly become more vibrant and bright without washing out the scene. In addition to fixing the brightness in a dark room, HDR also makes sure that the light coming from the doors or windows does not overpower the photo.
In simple words, when different sets of pictures are clicked, the best of each bracketed image contributes to the final high quality, balanced picture.
As far as interior spaces are concerned, HDR can help you achieve:
– Flexibility: HDR is suitable in situations where a better exposure is to be achieved in a scene with extra lighting. This specifically applies to large buildings –where it is not possible to adjust light on your own –large interiors, cityscapes, and landscapes.
– Color: With the help of a dynamic range of a scene, HDR can help adjust the true colors to the final image. The original picture could be way too bright or too dull. This is the perfect solution to achieve a high quality picture with balanced color.
– After HDR Processing: It is sometimes very important that you edit a tone mapped processed image to finalize the product. Even after you are done with tone mapping and bracketing, the areas with direct light can give out a very bright look. You can always use an under-exposed bracket to tone down the brightness of the image even more. However, you cannot avail this option if there are no brackets.
