Extended Dynamic Range Processing for Nature Photographers

Join award-winning outdoor photographer, Sean Bagshaw, for a day-long workshop in the advanced digital photo processing techniques he uses to help make his high dynamic range landscape, nature and travel photographs possible. This advanced level class will delve into various techniques of extending dynamic range in scenes with challenging high dynamic range light. Note that this is not a class on how to use HDR software. The processes in this class are all based on Photoshop adjustments and layer masking techniques and consistently produce higher quality and more realistic results than current HDR software.
