FCC Meeting and Event Calendar
March 2018 Program Meeting
March 9 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Mike Stebritz on HDR Processing
In my presentation, you will learn how to create a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image using a minimum of three images of the same scene taken under different exposures, and how to process the HDR image to reveal its details in highlights and shadows.
HDR images contain more detail in bright and dark areas than ordinary images. However, because of its large dynamic range, an HDR image does not look “correct” when displayed on your monitor.
With Photoshop CC, Photomatix or Lightroom Classic CC, you can process the HDR image for output to a printer, display on your monitor, or digital image for the web or competition.
I have actively been into photography for 43 years. My 1st black/white darkroom was built in 1975. I made the long progression from film/slide photography to digital photography and wet darkrooms to the digital darkroom on my computers in 1995.
During that time, I have taught all phases of photography, had my work published, and the last two years awarded as Photographer of the Year for Denver Photographic Society. I am a two time past president and current Digital Projection Manager and Web Master for Denver Photographic Society. I was president of North Jeffco Camera Club for 7 years until the club folded in 12/2014.
I am also the current President of the Colorado Council of Camera Clubs where I continue to teach various software applications for photography (Adobe Photoshop Elements, Photoshop, Lightroom, HDR techniques, and various software plug-ins) and run numerous photo workshops and basic digital camera operation classes. I am also a member in good standing with the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP).
