1. Welcome

Instructor Richard Harrington


While HDR photography has its fans and its detractors, just about every photographer loves having some control over dynamic range. Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic CC offer an entirely new approach to HDR imaging with the ability to merge multiple exposures into an all-new Digital Negative (DNG) file. This file gives you even more precise control over shadows, highlights, clarity, and contrast—with minimal changes to your shooting and post-production workflow. In this course, Rich Harrington shows how to get the most of Lightroom's Photomerge command and its image development and enhancement features to get more control over the dynamic range of your images. Along the way, he provides tips for shooting HDR photos, creating black-and-white versions of images, and combining Lightroom with Photoshop and Photomatix Pro. This video is available for FREE. Upgrade now and access all the classes. Anytime. Anywhere.
