Starting in the next chapter, we're going to dive into multi-shot tone mapping…HDR, the kind of HDR that most people think of when they think HDR.…But before we start merging and mapping images, I want to take a moment to…discuss organization.…If you're out shooting multi-shot HDR, you will inherently be coming back with…a tremendous number of images and it's very easy to get overwhelmed after you've…dumped them all onto your computer.…For every scene that you've shot, you'll have at least three images depending on…how much you were bracketing and if you were doing the correct job of a…photographer and working your shots, shooting it from lots of different angles,…trying and experimenting in lots of different ways, then you'll have three shots…for each one of those experiments.…
So it's very easy to open up those images that you've just downloaded and go,…oh boy, this is a whole a lot of data and not even know where to start and kind…of get discouraged.…Also, it's easy to lose track of which images go together to create a single HDR set.…
