You’ll be part of small group with plenty of one-on-one time. The workshop is based over two days with a sunset then blue hour shoot followed by and early sunrise shoot. You’ll receive tuition on how to capture extreme scenes like when you shoot into the sun, night-time neon lights and a variety of other scenes that we may come across.
Once we have our sets of images we’ll head into the studio to learn how to blend these images together to create some awesomeness.
What should I bring?
- A Laptop
- Adobe Lightroom
- Adobe Photoshop CS6 or CC
- Photomatix a must have
- A few plugins to that little bit extra. Topaz Adjust, OnOne Perfect Photosuite or Nik Software Collection.
- A Camera that allows you to bracket your exposure. It doesn’t need to be a dSLR. Got questions email us.
- A Tripod. A sturdy tripod will make the world of difference.
- Have something else other than Lightroom and Photoshop. That’s cool we’re down with that just drop us an email so we have an idea of what you are going to use.
So it’s just a HDR workshop?
Ummm yes and no. You see HDR has a bad rep because of things like HDR presets and in camera HDR that create over cooked psychedelic photos. A High Dynamic Range photo is just that, it’s a photo that has an extended dynamic range. It will still have a sense of realism however it won’t be over cooked.
The all important itinerary
Day 1 – Saturday 24th
We’ll kick things off by shooting at a time known as blue hour, which is in the evening. Then we’ll stroll through the city taking shots and capturing all the light possible. We’ll work with both long and shorter shutter speeds and learn how to determine just how much light we need to capture. We’ll walk around for a few hours going to various sites capturing our images.
Day 2 – Sunday 25th
Up early with a sunrise shoot, you’ll learn how to capture the extreme dynamic range that is present during a sunrise. We’ll then capture a few more scenes before heading into the studio where you will learn how to combine the images to create a stunning HDR final result.
