(High Dynamic Range) A photographic technique in which several shots are taken of the same high-contrast scene at different exposures. Highlights from the underexposed images and shadows from the overexposed frames are blended together to create a more natural look.
Some of Jakob’s HDR images of Pudong skyscrapers look like artist renditions of future projects. Some look like they were pulled from the pages of a neo-noir graphic novel. And others just look a little too perfect.
Definitely worth checking out. Visit Jakob’s “Visual OverKILL!” set or his “Heavy editing” collection.
