We are pleased to welcome back Gary Coyne to LADIG.
Some time ago (okay, a long time ago) Gary did a presentation on how to get into the HDR photography game. Since then HDR has gotten easier and better, and Gary’s back with update on the state of HDR and the tools, tips, and tricks to make great HDR photos, using Lightroom, Photoshop and Photomatix Pro.
From creating the proto-images used to create HDR to solid techniques that best replicate what we see, Gary will present a variety of tricks and techniques to help you get the best results. Gary will also discuss how to avoid the over-saturation and halo images which give HDR a bad name. Gary’s goal in many of his HDR photos is to make them look not like HDR, but something different…
Gary Coyne has worked with Photoshop since Photoshop 5.0 and has been creating HDR images for over 6 years.
Daniel will show you what you need to know about this new app in his monthly short segment.
