Map and Directions

Nature Photography and High Dynamic Range processing go hand-in-hand. Using a wide angle lens to capture landscape images often produces photographs that exceed the dynamic range of today’s digital cameras. Although the proper use of ND grad filters will greatly reduce the dynamic range, it is often necessary to combine two or more bracketed images in order to accurately capture natural scenes.

Our Intelligent HDR processing technique uses masks and layers in Adobe Photoshop to selectively combine 2 or more images. The resulting natural looking HDR image preserves the “depth” in shadows and details in the highlights. Automated products that combine multiple bracketed shots often produce flat-looking images, because the HDR is applied indiscriminately. Intelligent HDR allows the photographer to precisely control where the blending is applied - without requiring mind-numbing pixel-by-pixel adjustments.

The goal of the seminar is to teach techniques for creating natural-looking high dynamic range images. Students are encouraged to bring laptop computers. We will provide a selection of images for student use during the class. Instructors will be teaching with Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom version 2.2. Most concepts will also be applicable to Photoshop CS, CS2, and CS3.
