Nick Roberts of Speeddemon2 Photography will be conducting a workshop "Using HDR Photography to Create Your Own Personal Style" at Outdoor Photo Gear's classroom facility (see map).
In this workshop, Nick will cover the techniques and tools that are needed to center the fantastic world of High Dynamic Range photographs, and how to give those images your own personal style.
Nick will be teaching workshop attendees how to use the powerful NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 software as well as other NIK plugins for Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture 3 to create HDR images that range from Hyper Realistic and Super Saturated to pleasing realistic photos. This small group workshop will be extremely hands on, and each attendee will leave understanding the key elements of processing HDR images to create their own style.
Through the use of shared source images and their own photos, participants will be able to see firsthand "how" and "why" to use the vast power of HDR Efex Pro 2 to express their own unique vision for their photography.
Participants should have a basic understanding of their preferred post processing software (Photoshop, Lightroom or Aperture) and have it installed on their laptop. Bring your own laptop, DSLR and camera manual to each session.
If you have NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 make sure it is installed on your laptop. If you don't have NIK HDR Efex Pro 2, no worries! You can download a free 30 day trial copy at the workshop.
Topics to be covered include:
• mechanics of shooting, importing, processing and displaying HDR images
• discussion of when and where HDR photography is appropriate
• situations where the use of single images can be treated as HDR images
• using HDR with B&W photography to emphasize depth, texture and contrast
• using HDR to create your own style
Class size is limited to 15 people to optimize interaction and hands on training. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Coffee and water will be provided by OPG, as well as a refrigerator for your own beverages and food.
