Photography and image-making technology is reaching out in many new directions at once and at speed. Digital cameras no longer just provide easier ways to make traditional photos. Chris and Ade investigate emerging and future tech that will help us all make new and exciting photographs and images. Cameras, devices, software, hardware - we aim to cover all angles in the pursuit of The Future of Photography.

LDR, SDR, HDR. Today we start a two-part episode on high dynamic range. First, we need to make sure we all understand what the heck we are discussing! So here is a primer, a bit technical, hopefully useful.

LDR: That horribleness you see in photos where the whole image is close to a single brightness or luminosity level. SDR: What your TV displays - unless you have a modern, probably expensive one. HDR: High Dynamic Range! But what does it actually mean?

We talk about some standards and also add colour into the mix.

Picks of the week: A whiter white, [Proof that HDR isn’t necessary]( ) if you have good stories, 1920s mugshots.

This is an episode of The Future of Photography podcast with Adrian Stock, Eimear King, Jeremiah Chechik, Chris Marquardt
