Sunrise at the World War II Memorial

in my summer bootcamp 2014. During these classes, I teach people how to shoot in the field and edit in photoshop. Today’s class was centered on HDR, or high dynamic range photography. We discussed when to use HDR, and how it can be done well. Generally, HDR is not always needed, but when a camera cannot capture the full range of tones from very bright to very dark.

As the sunrise had few clouds, I had to be creative in looking for a composition. What I ended up with below did actually not use HDR, but instead a long exposure using a 10 stop ND filter:

This morning, I conducted another class in my series of Washington DC photography classes
