    Scroll all the way to the bottom to where it says "HDR (HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE)"
    .
    It explains that "HDR blends the best parts of three separate exposures into a single photo." What that means is that HDR takes three pictures and gives you one picture. You do not get those three pictures. You just get one.

    In the normal photo, the detail is just slightly more blurred
    .
    This is because the HDR is a combination of three images. However, many times if we're taking images of people walking or of things that have a lot of movement, we will end up with ghosts.

    The vehicles in this picture were mostly stopped, which is why this picture does not have what they would call ghosts
    .
    This is where there might be a second image of the car because it was moving quickly. HDR is usually fantastic for nature pictures or sky pictures where there are a lot of clouds, and we want to catch that detail.

    Normal photos are usually better for people who are moving and jumping around
    .
    When it comes to that, we're going to want to take burst mode photos of movement. Burst mode photos are discussed in another tutorial, so feel free to search for that to learn more about it.
