Quality HDR Photography - by Peter Thoeny

Display Event Calendar

The event was held on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM.

HDR photographer Peter Thoeny will introduce you to the world of HDR (high dynamic range) photography. Peter strives to create HDR processed images that tell a story, evoke emotions, have an artistic touch, and look natural. He loves to travel and is fascinated with photography since leaving Switzerland for Japan. He learned to compose when he created charcoal drawings and paintings while visiting Italy and other places in Europe. Currently Peter lives in the Silicon Valley, and is an instructor at the Digital Photo Academy in San Francisco.
