    This was a great class & it got me to think about HDR in some different ways. While some of the topics towards the end of the class were a bit advanced for me it was still great to see what the possibilities are.

    Hi Harold, I dont have any of the software you have mentioned. Is it ok to install trial version and bring it to the class?

      Hi Anuradha, yes that would be fine. Thanks! HD

    Hi Harold, it's hard to tell from the agenda (at least for me) but will there be actual hands-on shooting? Thanks!

    • Harold D.

      Angela, there will be hands-on shooting. Part of what I teach is best pratices in HDR image aquisition, and the best way to learn this is by doing. However, the real take-away from this workshop is the techniques and perspective you get for processing an HDR sequence. If you've had a look at my "Creating HDR Photos" book you'll have a pretty good idea of the contents---with more chance for personal topics than you get by reading a book of course.
