Thanks to mobile apps like Instagram, HDR photography has become extremely popular. HDR, a.k.a. High-dynamic-range, photography captures a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image. This process creates an unrealistic effect that amazes you every time. The two main sources of HDR images are computer renderings and merging of multiple low-dynamic-range or standard-dynamic-range images.
Photoshop allows you to mimic those effects with just one image. With the software, photographers can play around with contrast and lighting effects to create a desired outcome. There are also many premium and free HDR Photoshop actions that you can download. Once you have them installed, you can apply desired actions with a single click. This technique saves you a great amount of time and creates beautiful results in just a few seconds.
Today we’ve gathered seventy jaw-dropping HDR photographs for your inspiration. Every single photo was hand-picked to assure quality. Trust me, we don’t want to waste your valuable time with ugly photos. Without further ado, we hope you’ll enjoy these breath taking pictures!
