When photographing a high-contrast scene you can find that your pictures just don’t look like the scene you remembered. Even with the perfect exposure there are certain scenes that will always tend to get blown-out highlights, flat shadows, or both. But despite the fact that it’s nearly impossible to find a happy medium in these types of situations, there is a solution.
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. HDR is the difference between the lightest light and darkest dark you can capture in a photo. Once your subject exceeds the camera’s dynamic range, the highlights tend to wash out to white, or the dark's become black blobs. It’s difficult to take a photo that captures both ends of this spectrum but HDR will allow you to bring out a high dynamic range that couldn’t otherwise be achieved in a single photograph.
Sometimes people over process images, and some may look cool, and others not so cool. In this workshop we will be focused on understanding HDR and how to achieve a realistic look. We will be increasing the dynamic range to images shot both during the day and at night. We'll also look see the difference between 16 bit and 32 bit images.
