HDR Done Right


High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography can be a fantastic way to get those¬†images where¬†your camera can’t capture¬†both the highlights and shadows¬†in a¬†scene. But it is not without its critics, and can be a complicated technique to master. ¬†In this class we will teach you what HDR is, when it’s the best option for a photograph,¬†and the details on how it is done. ¬†Just as importantly, we will teach you when not to HDR, common pitfalls to avoid, and how to produce results that look great… not artificial.

The goal of this class is to make people look at your shots and say “Wow, Great Image!” not “Wow, you sure HDR’ed the heck out of that!”.

Type: Outdoor Photo Workshop

Activity Level:  Low. Light walking for best angles.

Things to Know: 

What to Bring:  Telephoto and wide angle lenses will both be very handy in this workshop. A tripod is virtually a must but there are ways around it if you don’t own a tripod. Knowledge of your cameras exposure bracketing capabilities and manual exposure ahead of time will come in handy.
