Is anyone producing HDR underwater content?
What sort of shots/scenarios do you think would actually benefit from HDR? Usually, we don't have a lot of specular highlights or deep shadows underwater, at least not when shooting balanced light scenes where you blend the ambient light with illumination you bring down.
Maybe the reflections off silvery fish?
But I'm curious if there is potential from the technology underwater, and if anyone is doing cool things with it.
I triggered the HDR question because I consume UHD HDR content
For me HDR BT.2020 has two benefits
1. Wider gamut and colour depth compared to REC709 10 bit
2. Higher value of maximum illumination
1. Comes useful even in portrait work but is not specific to HDR though is required for HDR
2. Backlight scenes, caves shot in natural light with black and bright openings, seascapes, sunburst shots
All the scenes in 2 you usually try to avoid or expose to avoid burning highlights with HDR you should be able to shoot and reproduce as is
Well this is what am hoping for based on the scenes that I see give the largest benefit on land
