Photo Tip: To create an HDR (high dynamic range) image, start by taking multiple photos—usually about three—of the exact same scene or object. Using a tripod will ensure that the camera doesn’t move between shots. This will make aligning the images easier when you get to the editing part.

Each photo should be exposed differently by adjusting shutter speed. Aim to take one underexposed image, one overexposed image, and one right in the middle at the correct exposure for the situation.
