Overview


Building on a professional photographer's on-the-job experience using the high dynamic range (HDR) imaging technique, which captures an astounding range of tones that far exceeds the native abilities of any camera, this guide shows serious photographers how a more sophisticated approach to HDR can produce images that lack visual pretense, stand the test of time, and realistically capture details that would otherwise elude the photographer. It demonstrates the basic procedure for creating an HDR image step-by-step, then explores progressively more complex and refined techniques that can be applied as the scene dictates or the artist’s personal aesthetic requires. Ample image sequences with plenty of screen shots let the reader follow the entire process through from start to finish. Unique techniques are presented for the treatment of special subjects, ranging from landscapes to still lifes and portraits. Ultimately, the handbook demonstrates that HDR imaging is a powerful tool and the professional photographers who take the time to fully master its potential can mean substantial rewards, both creatively and financially.
