What Is Multi-Image Blending?

At Vanishing Point Galleries, our style of photography revolves around Multi-Image Blending.  The reason for this is that when a single picture of a scene is taken at only one exposure level, it produces a limited contrast ratio.  This results in the loss of detail in bright or dark areas of a picture, depending on whether the camera had a low or high exposure setting.  The blending of multiple photographs compensates for this loss of detail by taking multiple bracketed photos (a minimum of 3) of the same scene at different exposure levels and stitching them together to create a stunning photo with incredible detail and clarity that could not be achieved by ordinary photography and editing.  Of course, because we are perfectionists, we go above and beyond and typically will blend up to 15 different photographs to get all the details that other real estate photographers would miss.


The result... better color, better contrast, better details, better photographs.



Photographs Taken At Different Exposure Levels

Note that the darker photographs tone down the lights from the window and lamps.  You can see through the window in the darker photos better.  This also allows to see some of the fine grain in wood.  The lighter pictures provide the details on the furniture and room but lose some of the important shadows that create interesting light effects and depth.



Final Photograph after Multi-Image Blending

After combining all 6 photos and using our unique processing technique, you can see that the window still shows clear, the lights are not so overly bright, the colors are more vibrant, yet you can see the details of the room.  Just another beautiful photo!
