Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an HDR image, part of Photoshop: Creating Composites (2012).
When the senior photographing includes a dynamic range or the range of dark …shadows to bright highlights that's beyond the capabilities of your camera to …capture in a single image, a composite image represents a great solution. …You could simply blend two exposures one for the foreground and one for the sky, …for example. And then, create a layer mask, to blend …those two together. But in many cases, a high dynamic range …image, or an HDR image, is a great way to approach this scene. …It gives you a lot of flexibility and helps ensure that you're able to retain …maximum detail in your final image. Here I have a scene where there's some …very dark shadows in the cliff wall and of course some bright highlights in the …clouds and so I captured several exposures.…
One relatively bright that includes a reasonable amount of detail down in the shadows. …One that you might consider just an average exposure and then an exposure …that was intended to retain as much highlight detail as possible. …
