This is what HDR was invented for.

I swear this set of pics is at least 15 years ago... maybe it was something similar back then.

I work in digital printing. This issue is a nightmare for local print jobs. Funerals, church directories, brochures. Customers will bring in photos and want us to make copies and you have to decide between seeing just teeth or the outline of heads.

I used to be really nervous discussing it because of optics in today's world. (white guy in a southern state) One day an older black lady who is a regular came in to get copies of a flyer for a community outreach group and the kids were all different races and the photo was take in a room with horrible lighting. No matter what I changed on the settings it wasn't getting better. I tiptoed around pointing out the very obvious because I didn't want to word something in a way that got misunderstood.

The lady looked at the samples and looked up at me and said "Next time they need to take two pictures. One with the white kids and another with the black ones." We both started laughing and I realized how stupid I was for being scared of having a normal conversation. If the photo was of animals or objects of different colors I wouldn't have hesitated to explain the technical issues of printing the photos. I think TV and internet has made us (me) forget that most people are capable of normal conversations about normal things.
