Shooting and Processing HDR PANORAMAS
Unmatched detail, unmatched range, make your photos amazing!
Have you ever been in this scenario? You are at a beautiful location, at the right time with that “once in a lifetime” shot in front of you. You seem to be able to capture some of it in your camera, but are missing the full majesty that you are seeing. The fact is, your camera is limited compared to your eyes. You need to find a way around these limitations, don’t you?
HDR enables you to capture every piece of detail, the colors, the textures and the emotion. Take that and turn it into a full sweeping panorama and you have the recipe for breathtaking images that will cause your viewers jaws to drop.
Randy Hufford will be your personal coach, as he reveals the secrets to capturing the full intensity of the scene using these techniques. Take a front row seat, and witness the rare combination of someone who has mastered both the production and post production processes. Join him on location in Hawaii.
