A HDR photography session in a deserted prison? Why not! Professional photographer and instructor, Tony Sweet, takes you to an old prison cell block for what he calls “a great HDR venue” because of the dynamic lighting range from bright skylights to dark stone walls.

You will learn to deviate from your normal light reading and why long exposures work best. In these high contrast settings, Tony recommends taking between 4 and 6 exposures for bracketing, two under, two over, and a couple in between. If you need to make adjustments, study the camera’s histogram and make your changes. “The idea is to capture all the detail at either end of the spectrum,” says Tony.

So come along with Tony Sweet and learn how to create HDR images by capturing the cell block.
