#143 Video Screencast from Bart on HDR

As you can see, this is a special edition video episode, thanks to the work of Bart Busschots of bartbusschots.ie. In this video screencast, he’s going to actually demonstrate this HDR photography technique he talked about in the last 2 shows. He’ll start by showing you several photos of the same scene, but taken at different exposures, then he’ll combine (or enfuse) them using Bracketeer, and finally he’ll bring them into iPhoto and show you how he uses the tools in that product combined with his own eye in order to create the final image he was looking for with high dynamic range, or HDR.
