In today's challenge, you'll be taking realistic HDR sunset photos — pack your gear and get outside! High Dynamic Range (or HDR) often gets a bad wrap — the concept is usually associated with overly processed, unrealistic images. However, exposure bracketing can be a very useful creative tool to capture a sunset scene in a realistic way. Your eye is actually capable of seeing more dynamic range than your camera, so the goal for this challenge is have our final image represent what we actually saw as much as possible. Watch today's video to learn more!
