Stephen Johnson Tutorial: An HDR Pro Approach
The White House: Dynamic Range, Perspective and Toning
On Labor Day weekend 2010 I was in Washington DC, on a absolutely gorgeous day, wandering through my favorite places, the Air and Space Museum, the Lincoln Memorial, and the White House. Standing among anti-BP Demonstrators I photographed the White House through the iron fence on the north side, looking up, somewhat into the sun and with brightly lit clouds and the building in its own shade. This produced a set of circumstances that were photographically challenging. It wasn't meant to be a serious day of photography, the tripod was in California, my heart was in the sunshine and the wonder of our nation's capitol. But why not try...

Interested in learning more? Perhaps one of our digital photography classes would be of help? We take the imparting of information and the empowerment of our students quite seriously. The digital age has considerably enhanced our ability to teach, and we believe your ability to capture what you see. This program is designed to help you benefit from both of these advances. We hope you can join us on a workshop.
