HDR Photography Workshop
High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography offers a collection of great tools for both artistic and realistic rendering of scenes which your camera on its own would be unable to capture in a single shot. Whether you intend to use it to create realistic images of building interiors or surreal art images, this one day class offers you a jump start under the instruction of an experienced HDR photographer.
Dave Wilson has been working with HDR techniques for 5 years and has a 25 year track record in photography. His HDR images have drawn praise from photographers and art lovers alike and have been accepted into juried exhibitions and collections in USA and Europe.
Join us for a full day of HDR photography instruction, shooting, processing and discussion. Starting at 9am, we will go over basic HDR photography theory and discuss how to shoot for HDR before spending a few hours in Austin shooting using those techniques. After lunch, we will return to the classroom and process our raw exposures into final, tone-mapped images.

You will need to bring the following equipment to the class:
This is an advanced intermediate level class. It is also expected that participants be familiar with the operation of their camera and image management software and be comfortable shooting in Aperture Priority or Manual exposure modes. You should have a good basic understanding of exposure-related variables – shutter speed, aperture and sensitivity settings. Knowledge of image editing techniques in Photoshop, Lightroom or Aperture is helpful but not absolutely required. If you don’t feel confident using your camera in Aperture Priority or Manual exposure modes, I would recommend considering some of our other classes such as the Intermediate Photo Series first.
Class is limited to 10 students. Class fills quickly.
