The old prison yard. Outdoor setting. Light sky. Dark stone. Professional photographer and instructor, Tony Sweet, explains, “This is the perfect candidate for an HDR photo, from deep shade to bright sunlight.”

You will learn that fast exposures work best in this type of exterior setting in order to minimize ghosting of the moving clouds. Tony shoots five exposures, the two overexposures bringing in the shadow data, and the two underexposures capturing the highlights. Tony then does an additional five, rapid exposures to freeze the clouds. After rechecking each histogram, Tony is ready to move into HDR processing.

So join pro photographer, Tony Sweet, in the outdoor area of the prison in this HDR photography video.
