Join instructor Lisa Cuchara, PhD, Cr.Photog., HonNEC, and learn how to capture high dynamic range (HDR) images. The prison has extreme dynamic range with drastic dark areas and bright skylights and windows which only further proves that HDR is about creating awesome images from scenes with high dynamic range. However, even with today's cameras and the awesome RAW post-processing capabilities of ACR (Adobe camera RAW), certain scenes will still yield flat detail-less shadows and blown-out highlights, even with perfect exposure. Some scenes require 3-14 exposures in order to capture the full dynamic range of the shadows and highlights. At a constant aperture different exposures are taken (shutter speed is changed) in order to capture the full range and details of the shadows, mid-tones and highlights. And we will be exploring the prison while learning HDR. This class will additionally demonstrate how to capture panoramic images and even combine the two together to create panoramic high dynamic range (HDR) images. 
You must register thru PPA. You do NOT need to be a PPA member to attend.
