Hi everyone! I know it’s been quite a while since I posted – it’s been a difficult year for our families. Thank your for your patience and support.
I wanted to give you an early note on a new class that I am developing for this fall on HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE (HDR) IMAGING! It will be offered through both the Milford and North Haven Adult Education programs (2 night program), and will be available as a camera club seminar as well!
Our eyes can see a much greater dynamic range of tones in a scene than our digital cameras can capture. A way to capture what we see is to take multiple exposures of a scene by “bracketing” (taking one “correct” exposure and then one or more over-exposed shots and one or more under-exposed shots to capture the full range of light in the scene). You can then merge these photos in Photoshop, or in a dedicated program such as Photomatix Pro by HDRsoft, or Nik’s HDR Efex Pro. There are also plug-in programs such as Topaz Adjust that can give you a “pseudo-HDR” effect. I will demonstrate the process from capturing the images through processing using all four of these methods.
Registration for the Adult Ed programs is in August – I will let you know when enrollment is open. The North Haven Class will be Mondays, Oct. 29 & Nov. 5, 6:30-8:30 p.m. The Milford Class will be Tuesdays, Nov. 6 & 13 6:30-8:30 p.m. Price and locations will be available in Aug.
I will also be teaching Photoshop Elements classes this year in both Milford and North Haven. Watch for more details soon!
Enjoy the summer – hope to see you at the NECCC Conference next week!
