The HDR Book Webcast with Rafael “RC” Concepcion
Join us for a free live webcast on Monday, August 1st at 4pm EDTRC Concepcion will be sitting down to talk about his latest title, The HDR Book, is essentially an HDR workshop between 2 covers. The book has 16 projects – each one designed to show you how the subtle differences presented with each scenario (light, subject, environment, etc.) dictate the post-processing needed to achieve each look. You’ll learn the settings RC used as well as the final steps taken in Photoshop before the image was done. The best part is that you recreate these looks yourself using the exact same raw files that RC used in his book! RC will take your questions during the webcast and of course, there will be good deals and prizes to be had by all. Register for the webcast here.
