Power Play on HDR

According to Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia online, High Dynamic Range Photography is:

“In image processing, computer graphics, and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of luminances between light and dark areas of a scene than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows.

Keeping this in mind, when we use this powerful tool, we also need to remember that 90%+ of home buyers start their search online. The virtual tour’s thumbnail needs to represent the best possible photo as possible, after all this is the first shot your viewer’s will see of your tour. The color, detail, contrast and brightness of a point-and-shoot photo cannot be compared to the excellent results you get from a HDR photo.

Another fantastic advantage of using HDR photography is this technique can be done without using extra lighting equipment. These images can be produced by using different exposure levels on your camera. No extra equipment to carry and fuss with thus saving time, energy and expense.

So produce spectacular images, but remember reality. Is this a true representation of your subject? Though this process can produce a spectacular image, is this image a true representation of your subject?

Even through this process can produce fantastic luminous pictures, it can be time consuming. Is this the most cost effective way to represent your virtual tour?
