Steve Porter’s – HDR Photography Workshop


You will be working directly with Steve Porter, learning HDR photography from start to finish. Your entire approach and eye for photography will change with this workshop. It will seem almost like any subject can be turned into an awesome HDR creation. My unique approach to the use of HDR photography will provide an entirely new artistic look to old photos, to practically anything you have ever shot! Prior to beginning our location shoot on Friday, we will be discussing the entire HDR process, how it works and what to consider in shooting for HDR.


Our group will meet at 3:00 PM Friday afternoon for initial in-class training, discussions and an HDR processing demonstration. Saturday instruction will include time to work on your own images with specific one-on-one guidance from Steve using Lightroom CC 2015.8, Photoshop CC 2017 and Photomatix Pro - so for best results, bring a laptop loaded with current software versions.


The workshop will continue through the lunch timeframe on Saturday until 4:00 PM with lunch provided as our photography discussions and processing instruction continues.

As a licensed commercial pilot, I have been flying Cessnas and taking aerial photos around the southwest for nearly 30 years, and in the process have shot a lot of very cool places from the air and on the ground. As a photography professional, I have traveled the world on a number of international projects including two BYUTV documentary films, a variety of fine art photography publications and an extensive series of children’s educational apps and printed books. I have also produced a number of video productions including music videos, business promotions, inspirational videos and life history films as well as some behind the scenes video work on documentary films. I guess I can say that I have become a digital imagery expert and love to find new ways to maximize my creative potential with this amazing technology. My areas of expertise include night sky photography, light painting, high dynamic range (HDR), landscape, street and editorial photography, drone based still photography & video, Aerial (fixed wing aircraft) photography, motion controlled time lapse work, post processing in Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and a wide variety of other applications.
