Jakob Montrasio uses high dynamic range (HDR) imaging because he sees an HDR image as a piece of art, reflecting the mood that he feels the image should have.Montrasio shoots at least three different exposures to get a image with as much colour and brightness information as possible. Editing one photo can take between 30 minutes and 3 hours to achieve the proper glowing and dramatic contrast.
