Photoshop CC HDR

by Kasia Zmokla

This course covers everything you need to know to create realistic High Dynamic Range (HDR) imagery, using subtle but effective processing techniques that will result with a natural and realistic HDR image. Software required: Photoshop CC.

What you'll learn

When photographing beautiful images, they often end up turning out flat and lifeless. This is because the human eye can see so much more than a single image registered by a camera. Creating HDR imagery can help restore your photos the the beautiful scene you saw with your own eyes. This course, Photoshop CC HDR, will teach you the three steps of creating realistic High Dynamic Range imagery. The first part of this course covers the basic principles of HDR photography, including detailed explanation on proper camera exposure. Next, you'll learn about the technical aspects of shooting for HDR - creating a sequence of photos that will be merged together with the Adobe Camera RAW. Finally, you'll wrap up the course with a hands-on creative learning process, where you'll work with supporting RAW images and focus on post-processing of the final 32-bit file. At the end of this course, you will know how to start shooting for HDR, merge your selected exposures, and finally how to perform Tone Mapping with Adobe Camera RAW. Software required: Photoshop CC.
