    However, we can just use the fingerprint lock by pressing our thumb onto the home button
    .
    This takes us to the home screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    We want to go to our "Settings"
    .
    The icon is a gray and silver box with a series of gears inside of it, and it's labeled "Settings". Press down on that one time.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Now, we are going to scroll down to the "Photos & Camera" option
    .
    It is pretty far down on the list. It has a small, colorful flower or wheel icon.

  6. 6
    When we find it, we'll give it one press
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

  8. 8
    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.

    If we want a second picture, we need to turn on the option to "Keep Normal Photo"

    This option is recommended.

  14. 14
    Then tap on an image to open it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    This first photo is not an HDR image
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    However, the next photo is an "HDR" image, as indicated by "HDR" at the top left corner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Another photo to the left is not an HDR image
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Now, there are two images we're going to show of a car with some refrigerators and junk on top of it driving through town
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Tap on the screen quickly to zoom out from the photo
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Swipe over to the next photo and note the shadows on the image
    .
    We'll zoom the main camera in to take a closer look.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    If we look at the photo of the car, this is the normal photo
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    We'll swipe right to view the HDR photo
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    In the HDR photo, there's more detailed shadow in the yellowish area on the window
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    There's also more light and detail on the back end of the car
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Switch back over to the normal photo
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    The area on the window is kind of blurry
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    If we scroll back to the HDR photo, we'll see that there's more detail on the shadow
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    Scroll back again to the car image, and we'll note that the back area of the car is a little more blurry
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Swipe over to the HDR image, and there's more detail visible, particularly on the roof of the silver car in front
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    We will zoom back out now, and then give a quick tap to the arrow at the top left corner to go back
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    We can now scroll through our album, and we can see all of the images we've taken with the HDR version and the version that is not HDR
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Press the Home button one time to return to the home screen of our phone
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
