misc_none 1:00 PM  -  4:00 PM High Dynamic Range Photography Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Professional photographer & photojournalist Len Cook shares his 25+ years of teaching experience in this workshop:

High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging is accessible to anyone with a digital camera of any kind, even a phone camera. The HDR technique uses 3 or more differently-exposed images of the same subject. HDR imaging captures more detail in brighter highlights and in deeper shadows than is possible with a single image.

In this class we will capture an HDR image with our cameras (bring yours along). Some cameras can capture an process an HDR image with no external computer processing! Wow! Fun!

Many photographers want the opportunity to capture images themselves, and then process the final image in their own computers. Attendees are welcome to bring a laptop to the class. I will provide software for you to install and demonstrate its use.  Please note that a camera is required, but a laptop computer is helpful, not required.

We will also discuss the concept of bits per pixel. Understanding this concept is helpful in creating and processing HDR images. We will then look at images with 32 bits per pixel, 16 bits per pixel, and 8 bits per pixel. 8 bits per pixel is the internet standard for photos.

Registration is required. Sign up at the Information Desk, call (510) 795-2627 x7 when the library is open, or email Barbara at btelford-ishida@aclibrary.org.
