What is HDR + Flash Photography?

HDR (or High Dynamic Range) photography is when a photographer shoots 5-6 identical photos of a scene (from super light to super dark), then blends all the images together in Photoshop.
The idea is to get the widest possible range of tones in a single image.
In theory, it's great idea. But with straight HDR, the photos often come out dull looking, with low contrast and washed out tones (see below).

HDR + Flash Photography
The solution is HDR + Flash photography. With this technique, the photographer still shoots a HDR image, but they also shoot a few extra frames with electronic flash.
If you compare the the two photos, you'll see that HDR + Flash gives you:
Clean, sparkling whites (compare the kitchen islands in both photos)
Rich greens through the windows (compare the windows in both photos)
The welcoming golden glow of the kitchen cupboards (compare the lights in the kitchen cupboards in both photos).
