IDR Photography = Real Exposure

by Shubby on August 28, 2011

IDR, which stands for Integrated Dynamic Range, is our term for the technique we use to create realistic and fully exposed 360° panoramas.  It differs from HDR in that with IDR, we create life-like exposure balance, whereas HDR is most often used with artistic license.  Our goal is to represent what the human eye actually sees, so that the image the viewer sees on the computer monitor or in print looks as realistic as possible.

The IDR technique involves, like HDR, blending exposures, but we take the extra time to mask in correctly exposed window scenes and shadow areas.  The graphic below depicts how we mesh correctly exposed views through the windows with a properly exposed interior.
