I’m giving a free talk on HDR in Austin and you are all invited

HDR has some passionate fans and strong detractors. Some call it Technicolor Clown Vomit, others think it’s the best thing since sliced bread. My view is somewhere in between. I think of it as a powerful technique to be used at appropriate times. I’m also lazy and want to do HDR in the easiest way possible way while maintaining quality and matching my “vision” of what I want.

My talk on HDR will discuss the capture process, the photography part using the camera as well as the HDR post processing on computer. Along the way, I will talk about HDR Myths and the best times to use this technique.

Of course, I’ll talk about equipment and tell you why the DSLR might not necessarily be the best camera. I’ll also show you a live demonstration of HDR software and the other steps I use to create my realistic HDRs.

Come join me at the September Austin Photographic Society Meeting for this free talk.

Time: Thursday September 25, 2014 from 6:30 – 8:30pm.
Location: Parish Hall, Episcopal Church of the Resurrection

  1. Now that is something I would definitely attend if I could. Your HDRs are right up there with the best. Such a shame that I live almost 5,000 miles away. I wonder if your talk could be adapted into a blog post? Good luck with it anyway.


  2. Could be an opportunity to take the video interest to the next level. Consult with one of your more video-centric fellow photographers on a multiple camera recording of the event (with good, lavaliere-mic audio) and edit in the demo portion after the fact. Use computer screen recording software for the visual combined with the on-site audio.

  3. Great job last night! I still marvel at your minimalist workflow. You make it look so quick and easy. I know it took years of practice and skill to get there and it’s great that you’ve found a way to quickly get your images processed so you can get back to shooting as soon as possible.
