Class Description


  • Setup your camera to capture HDR
  • Use Photoshop, Lightroom and Photomatix to develop images
  • Post-process many details in your images


Taking pictures can often seem like a compromise. Exposing for a region in a picture means sacrificing another area. HDR Photography is a proven technique that can let you make sure that every part of your picture is cared for and developed for its fullest potential. In this 60-minute class RC Concepcion will go over what you need to know of your camera to set up for HDR, teach you how to use Photoshop, Lightroom and Photomatix to develop the HDR file, and teach you tricks in Photoshop for post-processing every bit of detail on your images.


  • Anyone interested in learning how to use HDR


Adobe Photoshop CC 2019, Adobe Lightroom CC 2019, Photomatix Pro 6

It truly doesn't matter if this instructor creates work that looks different from what I like to make. What I got from this course were skills I needed to try something new. (In my case, I watched this before doing some interior photography, knowing I would need to use HDR in Lightroom.) RC teaches you how to set the camera up for bracketing and how HDR software works (in Lightroom, Photoshop, etc.) Apply your own creative aesthetic once you nail down these basics and you'll thank him, too.


Just what I was looking for. Basics of what HDR is and the basic steps to do it. I do not care yet about making it realistic or not. I can get into advanced features later, but I am strongly leaning towards non-natural, more impressionistic, looks.
