When you have captured some photo, you’ve generally observed that it doesn’t look like what I saw with my eyes when I captured the photo.” Because the current camera isn’t good at capturing the entire range of light in the scene.
You saw when you captured a photo where either brightness or darkness is high, your image couldn’t maintain itself. Then HDR is used to eliminate high brightness or darkness and make the image evenly. HDR Mode will improve many outdoor and landscape scenes. Because these settings often have both dark and light areas, you will often lose details. Turn on HDR to compensate.
What is HDR Mode in Photography?
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is used in Photography. You can use this mode to take photos without losing details in bright and dark areas. The camera automatically takes several photos (3 different photos) with various exposure values and then merges them into one photo that why your phone takes a little longer time when you turn HDR mode on.
Where we should use HDR Mode?
Sunrise, sunset, or similar scenes :
We all know that lighting is one of the most important aspects of a good photo, but too much lighting on someone’s face—like harsh sunlight—can cause dark shadows, bright glare, and other unflattering characteristics. HDR mode can even that all out and make your subject look better.
Night scenes or low light scenes :
If your photo is looking a little too dark—which often happens if your scene has too much backlight—HDR can brighten up the foreground without washing out the well-lit portions of your photo.
Scenes where either you have a lot of bright light or scenes that have a lot of dark :
Landscapes: Big landscape photos usually have a lot of contrast between the sky and land, which is difficult for your camera to deal with in just one photo. With HDR, you can capture the sky’s detail without making the land look too dark, and vice versa.
