I am pleased to announce that Part One of a three-part series of articles I have written on HDR (high dynamic range) Photography and Printing has just been published on the Breathing Color website under "The Art of Printmaking" guest blog. To read Part One, "How to Print HDR Photographs (Part One) — Camera Settings and Color Management," click here. Next up will be post-processing and stylizing images, monitor calibration and profiling, more on color management, and the complete printing workflow.
Breathing Color, based in Orange County, California, is a major manufacturer of advanced fine art papers for digital inkjet printing. My relationship with Breathing Color began while I was President of the Central Coast Photography Society, an affiliate of the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art. They were one of the generous sponsors of our 2010 Photomorphosis fine art photography exhibition.
I am very honored to be asked to contribute to this prestigious blog, and already have people asking me about teaching more classes. If you are interested in taking a class on HDR photography or printing, please email me.
HDR stands for high dynamic range and is a newer digital photography technique that allows photographers to capture the entire tonal range present in a scene, from the deepest shadows to the brightest highlights, without sacrificing one for the other, as was the case in traditional film photography.
