Historic downtown Charleston, South Carolina offers wonderful photo opportunities from knurly trees to old architecture. In this video, professional photographer Tony Sweet uses the HDR format to photograph a weathered stone wall. You will learn how to set up the composition, and read the camera’s histogram to capture the darks and lights in your multiple exposures.

Tony makes five exposures of the beautiful stone wall. He carefully studies the histogram to make sure he has covered the shadows, highlights, and mid-range. He also consults the RGB graph in order to capture the reds, greens, and blues. A successful HDR image should cover the complete tonal range.
