We're holding an HDR workshop April 12th, it begins at 10:15 at Huntington Beach State Park at Atalaya. We'll shoot inside Atalaya ( also an abandoned building, if you still need a contest image) then head over to the Waccamaw Library (1:00 to 3:00) to process our photos.
capture HDR images you'll need a tripod, with remote shutter release or a timed shutter release, digital camera (bring your manual) preferable that can shoot bracketed frames, a fairly wide angle lens (15-24 mm) and the usual SD cards and extra
batteries. The shoot should last an hour or so, then we'll grab a quick lunch, then head to the Library for 1:00 PM
I will be demonstrating the Aurora HDR 2018 app, it can be
stand alone or as a plug-in from Lightroom, Photoshop or Elements
But you can use any HDR app to process the HDR images, here are 3 good alternatives, in no particular order:
First is the FREE NIK HDR EfexPro download it free using this link:
Please download and install the NIK HDR software on your laptop, so we're ready
only issue with NIK is it is not a stand alone app, you'll also need Lightroom, Photoshop or Elements installed to use. the NIK apps.
