High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography Class

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography Class

Sunday the 16th of January
Crickley Hill - 2:00pm - 2 hours
Are your skies too bright and shadows too dark? Rather than having to choose between a subject that's too dark, or a sky that's too bright, learn how HDR gives you the best of both. Find out when to use it and when not to. Even if your camera doesn't have HDR, though most now do, even many smartphones, you can find out how you can still get stunning HDR images using Photoshop by taking multiple photographs. Many landscape and architcural photographs are taken using HDR, one of the most powerful tools you can have for outdoor photography.

GROUP
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Gloucester.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Gloucester Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 2 metres away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
