A common occurrence when photographing the landscape is that our images don't match what we saw. The brighter areas in an image may be completely overexposed or shadow areas may appear totally black. This is because the dynamic range, or contrast, we encounter in nature is often at the edge of or beyond what our cameras can record in a single exposure. Fortunately, there are many ways to overcome challenges of high dynamic range light, both in the camera and in developing. Sean's presentation will look at different types of natural light, how to evaluate the dynamic range in a scene and several techniques for controlling the dynamic range in your images.
