In Depth: HDR Photography


By using the HDR method, you can improve the quality of your photos that have vastly different areas of brightness and darkness, without losing quality.

This one-day class is broken into two parts:

  1. Creating photographs: The day begins with a discussion about the basics of HDR photography and how to create them with your camera. Next, we'll step outside the classroom to start learning the HDR process with students creating images designed specifically for HDR.  
  2. Editing photographs: After a lunch break, we'll return to the studio to learn how to work with our photos and create layered HDR images. Through detailed instruction, you will leave knowing how to create stunning HDR images on your own and with an expanded toolkit for future adventures.
