Take Two for Better Indoor Photos

Hotel Room
Garnet Ghost Town, Montana
Whenever we photograph in a room with windows during the day, the outdoor view is much brighter than the inside. We can use exposure blending (also called "HDR") to create an image that looks more like what we see. After placing my camera on a tripod, I made two exposures, one for the interior and one for the view out the window. Then I combined the two using Lightroom Classic's Photo Merge to HDR feature.

Interior exposure
4 seconds, f/16, ISO 100

Window exposure
1/4 second, f/16, ISO 100
