HDR TUTORIAL COURSE OVERVIEW

The course does not just cover HDR, but many other innovative and fun post-processing techniques as well. There are over 11 hours of video instruction across 9 classes covering topics for beginners and moving into intermediate and advanced topics. Over 130 RAW images are included in the best packages that you can use to practice the new techniques you will learn.

Trey feels it is important for you to understand the “thinking process” as well as the “photography process”, so he spends the first part of every session talking about the thinking that goes into everything he does, from composition to critiques.

“While the training on photography and post-processing with Trey are inspiring, and will take your photography to the next level, the lectures in the beginning of each session are even more valuable. To hear from an artist, in his own words, the thought processes behind his work is a mind & eye-opening experience.”

What software will you need? Photoshop CS4 or higher is required and Photomatix Pro is highly recommended (coupon code). Adobe Bridge and Lightroom are used but not required. Please visit our Support page for additional information. The course is risk free, 100% money-back guaranteed.
