HDR ended up being cooler than I thought it would be. The method to the madness of HDR is that you set your camera to take three shots of the same image, each in a different resolution. So you end up with a high exposure, balanced exposure, and low exposure shot of the same subject. Then we used Photomatix Pro, a specialized editing software, to blend all three images in different combinations until we find one that showcases the image the best. We also edited a single image in Photomatix to see what results that would bring as well.
