Join Moose in the Eastern Sierras as he introduces the class and goes over the gear he uses.
There are some basic camera settings you want to configure before you start shooting.
Moose gives a walk through of the first shoot, covering everything from composing the scene to how to visualize the steps you'll take during post-production.
Color, pattern, and visual interest.
When you can't use a graduated neutral density filter you can use High Dynamic Range photography techniques to capture the scene the way your eye sees it.
With the aid of technology you can scout your locations before you arrive and once on site determine the best time for the desired quality of light.
There are a number of strategies you can use for pushing your photography forward.
A polarizing filter can be a great asset for removing reflections such as the blue color cast caused by the sky reflecting off objects in your scene.
Moose shares his basic workflow in Adobe Camera Raw.
Another example of a quick camera raw edit.
Beyond the basic workflow you can finish a photo in Camera Raw with the Graduated Filter.
After the basic Camera Raw workflow there are additional techniques available in Photoshop for achieving the photograph you original envisioned.
Moose processes a photo using Nik HDR Efex Pro 2.
One issue for shooting HDR is dealing with ghosting when you have movement, such as wave, in your exposures.
The main reason Moose uses HDR is to create photographs that appear closer to how the scene originally looked to the human eye.
Moose provides an overview of the lessons from the class. Stick around for the outtakes.
