We at Afulki Photographs recently transitioned from lighting our real estate images with many hidden speed-lights to using High Dynamic Range (HDR) techniques. This has allowed us to cover more of the property in less time and with less disruption to the home owners. Hiding lights used to be the greater part of the time taken during the shoots, now however we can spend time finding better and more interesting shots.
For those who don’t know what HDR is, simply put it’s a way of combining multiple images, taken with different exposures by varying the shutter speed while keeping everything else the same. Then using software to stack or overlay the images allowing for the dark areas and light areas to be exposed correctly.
