Historic Drayton Hall in Charleston, South Carolina offers interesting architectural patterns. In this video, professional shooter Tony Sweet photographs a series of stone antechambers in high dynamic range. You will learn how to create HDR images that capture the full details of these high contrast type of subjects.

Using a 14mm lens and six different, full-stop exposures, Tony frames the stone archway opening onto bright sky, trees, and lawn. He also shoots a lineup of stone vestibules in the vertical and horizontal formats. The processed files assembled in editing solve the problems of dark shadows and bright highlights, and the finished HDR images capture the full tonal range.
