I’ve been playing with tone mapping HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. Basically you take three images of the same scene with different exposure settings, then combine them into one file to retain all the details from each. The resulting HDR image won’t be able to display on your screen because a computer screen can’t display the full range of tones. To solve this problem, you apply a tone map to the file so that it pulls all the details into one finished image. The HDR files are massive and difficult to work with, but the results are weird and sometimes beautiful. Here’s my first real attempt at it. I’ll post more info about the technique after I get a bit better at it 🙂
