Online Zoom Presentation: Into the Eye of the Sun - HDR for Natural Looking Images

 Registration is closed for this event
“Mama always told me not to look into the eye of the sun … But mama, that's where the fun is” Bruce Springsteen. Since the beginning of photography, photographers have always been battling the issue of dynamic range and contrast--especially when pointing the camera into the sun such as sunrise and sunset images. But digital has changed all of that. With the introduction of HDR (High Dynamic Range Imagery) photographers can now point into the sun without issue.

Viewpoint is holding this workshop online. We hope you will enjoy this event from a comfortable location.

Please sign up for this workshop as you would any other Viewpoint workshop online. You will receive a Zoom invitation and general instructions 2 days in advance of the workshop. Lewis is looking forward to taking the popular workshop online for your enhanced convenience. 

Lewis will demonstrate how to get realistic looking HDR images using the built in HDR in Lightroom and Camera Raw as well as using the “Merge to 32 bit plug in” from and Photoshop/ACR Merge to HDR.

Instructor Bio:

Lewis Kemper has been photographing the natural beauty of North America, and its park lands for over 29 years specializing in nature and outdoor photography. During his extensive travels, he has been to 47 states from Alaska to Florida. His work has been exhibited and published in magazines, books, and calendars worldwide.
Before moving west, he received a BA in Fine Art Photography from the George Washington University in 1976. The grandeur of the west beckoned and Lewis moved to Yosemite National Park, where he lived for 11 years. From 1978 until 1980, he worked at The Ansel Adams Gallery. Working at the gallery gave him the opportunity to meet, observe and learn from some of the greatest photographers of our time. "The experience of working at The Ansel Adams Gallery was very influential in my development as a photographer", he states.
