Dynamic Range

In Photography by Jerad HillLeave a Comment

Dynamic range is the ratio between the maximum and minimum luminance of a photo. A photograph that is said to have a high dynamic range will preserve more detail in highlight and lowlight areas.


While digital photo sensors have a significantly lower dynamic range than the human eye, there are techniques to overcome this limitation. High dynamic range (or HDR) photography achieve photos with a higher dynamic range by combining multiple exposures to retain detail in lighter and darker areas.
