Photography

MAKE WEEK: Nighttime, HDR Photography, and Panoramic Portraiture Workshop

Instructor: Alan Cradick

Learn basic High Dynamic Range photography and the use of multiple images to create stunning portraits. HDR photography is the use of several images at different exposures, combined in a computer to create photographs with a longer tonal range that is possible with a single image. The resulting photograph captures a tonal range nearing that of the human eye. Panoramic portraiture, the Brenizer Effect, is the use of multiple images and wide-open aperture. This technique creates beautiful wide-angle images with the subject in sharp focus surrounded by the soft focus only possible with longer a lens. On Friday evening, participants bring a DSLR and a sturdy tripod. Include an assortment of lenses from wide to short telephoto. Use of a remote triggering device is recommended, but not required. On Saturday, students work on computers (not provided). Participants should have a working knowledge of the post-production software installed on their computer. Any software that is capable of stitching together panoramic photographs will suffice. For HDR, make sure that your software is capable of merging images to HDR. For HDR, a specialty software, Photomatix, is available for free download at: http://www.hdrsoft.com/download.html . This link will be included in the workshop confirmation email. Photographs make excellent gifts!
