Review : Hydra HDR Creator

Photography blog (and sister site to TotalApps) Seven by Five have a great review of Hydra the latest in High Dynamic Range Photography creator. Hydra is available as a plugin for Aperture, Lightroom and as a stand alone app.

You hear it mentioned regularly by the guys at Photoshop user, and intensively featured again and again in various magazines at different levels of photography, almost to the point where it needs no introduction. However everyday the art that is photography sees more and more users pick up an SLR or semi-SLR camera, often overwhelmed by what is available in the market and what they actually need to know about.

Brands, Lenses, Techniques, Photoshop etc. For those who have only recently began to dip their toe in high end digital photography, or decided to expand their horizons and try out this “HDR” thats been so raved about one must first delve into what HDR stands for. . If you’re still as confused about what this all means as you were a moment ago, not to worry. Dynamic range is the range that a light sensory device can attain when capturing and interpreting detail within the light.

What this means is that whatever the dynamic range of a device is, defines the amount of detail that can be captured within a specific range of light from zero darkness, to so bright its all white. This is why often in cameras when shooting directly into the sunlight either our family is well lit, and the background is completely white, or our backgrounds are relatively well lit with detail, and our subjects are often obscured in darkness.
