A Lightroom mobile HDR Experiment

Wispy Shilshole Sunset

While shooting the sunset the other night, I tried out the fairly-new HDR capture mode in Lightroom mobile on my iPhone 7. Consider me impressed! The app snaps three photos and merges them together right there, creating a DNG (Adobe’s “digital negative” format) with lots of image information for editing. I’m generally wary of in-camera HDR processing, because with most cameras you end up with just a JPEG that doesn’t give you as much editing capability later.

The initial shot looked great, and I tweaked it slightly, also in Lightroom mobile on my iPhone. In fact, the only time the image went beyond the phone was when I checked it using the large screen of my MacBook Pro; since I saved the capture to a synced collection, the photo was waiting for me in Lightroom. Be sure to click the photo to view it larger at Flickr.
