Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video HDR, part of Nikon D5100 Essential Training.
As we've discussed, your eye can see a much wider dynamic range than your camera…can.

Your camera has a built-in HDR feature that does a pretty good job of creating…HDRs in the camera, and you can learn all about HDR in my Shooting and Processing…High Dynamic Range Photographs course.…You configure HDR from the Shooting menu.…Scroll down until you find HDR, (high dynamic range).…Go into that menu, and you have a few options.…
