In this HDR class I will  show you in depth, my workflow (Picasa, Photomatix Pro & Lightroom 3) and SHARE the steps that I use to create my HDR photos as well as tips on how I get consistent results. I even show you how to quickly and easily watermark your images with your name and © symbol. Also included are many sample HDR photos as well as a short “on location” video showing you the HDR shooting technique AND a BONUS video of “What’s in the Bag?” This 112 minute online class is packed with tips and info to help turn you into a bonafide HDR addict in just ONE DAY! No need to spend endless hours in front of your computer viewing tons of tutorials or complicated editing programs to learn how to do HDR! My simple approach is not overly technical, it is intuitive and FUN!

Now you can learn at YOUR OWN PACE and in the privacy of YOUR OWN HOME how to apply HDR to YOUR PHOTOS. In this informal 112 minute online class I walk you through the basic steps of how to apply Photomatix HDR to your photographs. I also share with you the secret to applying HDR to single images and bracketed exposure photographs, as well as showing you the basics of how I “finish” my images in Lightroom and then manage my image files and folders in Picasa. In addition, I talk about organizing your workflow and share tips and tricks that work for me. I believe in keeping my workflow SIMPLE and UNCOMPLICATED – so if you are looking to streamline and SIMPLIFY your workflow or just setting up your workflow then this CLASS is for YOU!

“Inspiration. As a photographer, I am always seeking it. Visual inspiration from the Natural World is a wonderful thing. But to be inspired by another photographers work is always exciting. When I first saw the images created by Cheyenne L. Rouse, I was immediately drawn to her unique interpretation of the world around her. Not only does she capture poignant compositions in subtle details, but she can take an ordinary subject and turn it into magic with her use of high dynamic range ( HDR ) techniques. With this inspiration, the Southwest has become and more interesting place to explore and photograph. For one thing, I can’t pass up a classic old vehicle without stopping to do my own HDR interpretation of it. Thanks Cheyenne.” – G. Brad Lewis/Professional Photographer
