The SLR Lounge HDR Photography Workshop is a three-disc, 13-hour tutorial covering all aspects of high dynamic range (HDR) photography from start to finish. Lessons focus on the complete range of stages, from shooting to post-production, and help to develop a set of skills for efficiently producing realistic and captivating imagery. Instructed by Post Production Pye, 140 total videos are provided and organized into a simple and intuitive player for easier following along. Additionally, 25 guided edits are included, allowing you to hone your craft from start to finish.

This workshop is spread out over two DVDs, with 10 hours of tutorials, and also includes a third bonus DVD that contains 10 additional HDR exercises with three more hours of video.

In addition to the video lessons, the following is also included: high resolution RAW and JPEG working files for each of the exercises; three foundation HDR presets for Photomatix; and a sample collection of HDR Develop and Brush Presets from the SLR Lounge Lightroom 4 Preset System that are applicable to HDR photography.

Types of HDR Photography Taught

Bracketed HDR Photography Tutorials
One of the most common types of HDR photography, compositing bracketed exposures enables the ability to render an expanded range of tones and values compared to a single exposure. These tutorials include choosing the right scene type, covering the execution process, and post-production techniques for developing a clean bracketed HDR photograph.
Nighttime HDR Photography Tutorials
Specific to compositing long exposures, typically made at night, these tutorials explain how to acquire the greatest dynamic range in low-light situations. Specific focus is given to controlling motion within the exposure, including water and cars, and how to use these interesting elements to benefit the finalized image.
Single Shot HDR Photography Tutorials
These tutorials show you how to extend the apparent dynamic range and produce exceptional imagery from a single exposure.
Panoramic HDR Photography Tutorials
Focusing on creating expansive panoramic HDR images, these lessons cover how to composite multiple HDR photographs into one seamless wide-field image. Specific focus is given to how to compose, shoot, and post-produce these types of unique images.
Black and White HDR Photography Tutorials
Deviating from the traditional full-color HDR images, these tutorials teach dedicated considerations and techniques for improving the dynamic range of tones in monochrome imagery.
