The LG G6 has been available for nearly a month now, so that means you’ve had ample time to dabble between it’s normal and wide-angle lenses. If you’re anything like me, you probably abhor the over-sharpening of your shots on your new phone; worry not, for I have found a solution: HDR.
As a photographer, I can be very picky when it comes to just about anything in my line of sight. Good or bad or just “okay,” my critique and opinion, based on my greatest sense, sight, is necessary. In this case, I love my new phone, but this 13MP dual-camera bugs the crap out of me sometimes. That is, when I don’t use it’s HDR feature.
Like today, for instance, I was taking pictures of my Husky and the little HDR pop-up appeared at the corner of the screen which made sense because I was in a shaded area while she stood in the sun. After taking the shot, it seemed near-perfect, so I zoomed in to see if those pesky, over-sharpened pixels we’re visible and to my surprise, they weren’t! They were, in fact, smoothed over in appearance. Then, it hit me: HDR Smoothing!
When you take an HDR shot, a Smoothing effect is applied to the photo to stitch together the two photos originally taken to create one evenly contrasted picture. I have that same option on my DSLR. Despite how long it took for me to put 2 and 2 together, luckily the G6 applies this same effect.
In the HDR section in camera settings, you’ll see an option to keep HDR ‘On’ for every picture you take. I’ve decided to go this route and I hope it helps your photography endeavors. Go ahead and try it out!by
