How do you capture a scene bathed in mostly dark, natural light? In this Capturing Window Light video, professional photographer and instructor, Tony Sweet, takes you to a shadowy prison cell and uses a long set of exposures for his HDR photograph.

The average, aperture priority setting calls for 15 seconds at 400 ISO. Tony shoots a single photo in this average mode, then brackets two under exposures for the window light data. He concludes the sequence with a 70 second overexposure to capture the shadow details. Tony adds, “I decided to shoot at low angle for dramatic perspective.”

Join pro photographer, Tony Sweet, as he conducts a video session on long exposures to capture a dark prison cell in HDR.
