Shooting HDR images

Follow Karl to Brooklyn Bridge as he explains step by step how to take HDR images in black and white and colour.

You’ll learn how to find great locations and compose your images as well as how to use the technique of HDR to make the most of a scene when weather conditions are less than ideal. The following chapter goes into more detail about the post production and processing for HDR photography.

In this photography class we cover the following:

  • HDR Photography
  • How to photograph HDR images
  • Exposing for HDR photography
  • Useful equipment for HDR photography
  • Using polarizing filters for HDR imagery

NOTE: This photography class is available with English subtitles.


  1. Great Scott, I mean – Great Shot.
    Didn’t realize you could do so much in HDR on such a dreary day.
    Thanks for the tips…

  2. Hahahaha…..I swear Karl, you are so funny at times. I’ve never heard the word “spanner “. You’re so funny.

    1. Ha Ha Gina, in what context did I use it, did I call myself a ‘spanner’ or did I say ‘that threw a spanner in the works’!! I use that word quite a bit I guess, I don’t know why though 🙂

  3. I got to ask, did you run into police and did they ask you for a permit? Or were you off the beaten path enough that you were left alone?

    1. Hi Stephen, I think we were off the path enough here but we’ve been asked before especially if we are filming. We were kicked off the top of Montparnasse tower in Paris (luckily via the elevator) and we’ve been moved on in the USA but generally in the UK no problems. Now we usually apply for permits to save any hassle.

  4. Great shot Karl. What did you use this photo for? Did you sell it or just kept it for your portfolio?

    1. Hi Pau, many of the shoots are simply filmed for the tutorials although sometimes they are sold as ‘stock’ images later although this particular one has not been sold for any purpose.
