HDR for Digital Photographers  

HDR is High Dynamic Range Photography. When you photograph a landscape, the sky is usually washed out. A photograph can’t record a scene with a wide range of shadows and highlights. HDR photography combines several exposures of a scene into a single, optimized, photograph. A tripod is required (such as AmazonBasics 60-Inch Lightweight Tripod with Bag, about $24, Bring your camera's manual if you have one. Make sure the battery is charged and that there's space on the memory card. We'll be visiting Spanish Point during the second class. Admission ($12) is not included. Got a question?

Tu 11/14/2017 - 11/28/2017  Supply List for HDR for Digital Photographers:
• Camera. A Digital SLR camera is best. However, if you have a point-and-shoot camera, it will probably work almost as well. Check to make sure you can 1) Set the camera to record RAW files instead of JPEG files; 2) Vary the exposure by using the exposure compensation feature or can shoot in Manual mode.
• Your camera manual. If you don’t have it, let me know.
• Tripod. Your camera can’t move when you’re taking several photographs of a scene, one after another.
• Memory cards. You’ll need lots of empty memory space, because 1) You’ll be taking several shots of each scene, and 2) You may be saving the photos as raw files, which are larger than JPEG files.
• Memory card reader. You can plug your camera into the computer.

Register early to avoid disappointment as classes will fill up quickly!
