High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) is a process where photographers create images with a wide range of brightness between highlights and shadows to obtain more tonal detail. This can be achieved through software technique by using just one RAW file or multiple fiels with different exposures.

In this workshop you will learn to edit a single image with raw convertor and Photoshop layering to maximize details in highlights and shadows. You will be shown techniques of exposure blending from multiple originals in Photoshop and other current HDR applications like NIK HDR Efex Pro. Tone mapping will also be discussed for creating special effects.
