Join us in a discussion of one of the most interesting new developments in digital imaging technology, High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging. HDR imaging extends the dynamic range of images to create amazing detail - from the brightest highlight to the darkest shadow - by combining multiple images of various exposures into one. This demonstration will be done using Photomatix Pro version 3.1.3 software that integrates with Photoshop CS4.

After Stan Kohn''''s HDR demonstration, Eric Wethington will introduce some exciting new GPS-enabled cameras. Cameras that will be demonstrated include the Nikon P600 with GPS, and the Pentax K7 with HDR. Time permitting, the Canon 7D and Nikon D300 will be included.
