"Exploring High Dynamic Range Photography" with RICK SAMMON

"Exploring High Dynamic Range Photography"


HDR ( High Dynamic Range ) is a revolutionary technique that transforms traditional photographs into eye popping images, revealing a wide range of exposures and tones that bring a scene to life. Overcoming the challenge of photographing details in extreme highlights and shadows is possible through HDR processes such as tone mapping and bracketing exposures.

Come discover the magic of HDR by joining the legendary Rick Sammon as he shares his favorite HDR images, and his personal techniques for creating them. Rick will provide a basic overview of HDR imaging, followed by a demonstration of programs and plug-ins, including Photomatix, Topaz Adjust and Lucis. If you're new to HDR, or would like to hone your existing skills, then this is the perfect inspirational and instructional seminar for you.
