This old prison was full of photo ops. But Al Capone’s prison cell? Professional photographer and instructor, Tony Sweet, found this old cell to be the ideal subject for a HDR photograph.

You will learn how to handle mixed lighting, from lamp light to window light, from the bottom of the gray scale to the top. Tony uses very long exposures in capturing Al Capone’s cell – six exposures from a stable tripod, from minus three, ranging through aperture priority, and up to plus two. He explains the importance of each photo’s histogram to make sure “we have all our highlights and all our shadows.”

So take a tour of Al Capone’s prison cell with pro photographer, Tony Sweet, as he gives a video lesson in HDR: High Dynamic Range Photography.
