What is HDR + Flash Photography? 

Want your listing to stand out and sell fast? Choose 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).  

Straight HDR

HDR + Flash 

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).
