Took the class to a golf course model home this afternoon to shoot HDR. Tremendous opportunity to learn high dynamic range shooting in a controlled environment.
The attached kitchen shot is a merge of six exposures. The total dynamic range of the scene was about 12 stops (we learned to measure dynamic range today using our camera's spot meters and manual shooting mode.)
After the real estate shooting we headed down to an incredible beach for some sunset shooting. HDR and slow shutter speed work kept us busy for a couple hours. I won't lie, I like shooting after sunset in Los Osos and Morro Bay but... Shooting here where the water is 75 degrees with 80 degree air temps is incredible.
