    Beautifully illustrated book, with a fatal flaw

    This book is actually a great reference to High Dynamic Range photography, however, it is almost impossible to read! The publisher has selected a very tiny font for the body of the text, and then has laid it out so the font is many times overlaid on a dark background, making it almost totally illegible. What a shame to make such a wonderful book so unapproachable! If you struggle through with a magnifying glass, there is a treasure trove of information though.

    Basic Information

    This book contains basic information and gives solid advice, however it doesn't go far enough. It provides basic information but lacks depth to truly give you insight into the full potential HDR can provide. I'd say it is a good book to start with, just be prepared to buy several more books if your goal is to learn the full potential HDR offers.
