High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI)

HDRI allows us to create an image with a dynamic range that is equal to or beyond human vision. In other words, we capture images that show details in the darkest dark areas, the brightest bright ones, and tones between them. We start with three or more images and merge them using specialized software. The resulting image cannot be shown on a typical computer monitor, but you can adjust the image interactively to display the entire range.

We reprocess the image to give the most descriptive results, such as the single image shown here. While somewhat subjective, the result is a hyper-real image with more information than any of the individual source images.
