9780134180281: HDR Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots

Creating high dynamic range (HDR) images is a very popular form of photography, but it has also been criticized as being so surreal that images appear too fake. Hence, a movement of creating realistic HDR images has been on the rise.

 

While digital sensors in cameras hold great promise, they still fall short of what our eyes can see in most high-contrast scenes. Luckily for us, Lightroom, Photoshop, and Photomatix provide a more accurate and elegant solution to the age-old problem of producing detail in both the highlight and shadow areas of these scenes for more realistic images.

 

HDR is a two-part process—capturing the right images in camera and then combining those images in post processing software. In this guide designed specifically for beginning and intermediate photographers, pro photographer Tim Cooper will take the reader step by step through the capture process and then provide his tricks and techniques for producing natural-looking HDR images using Lightroom, Photoshop or Photomatix. In addition to being a hot topic for general photographers, learning this particular process is important for aspiring landscape, architecture or interior/real estate photographers where lack of detail in the highlight or shadow areas can be a real problem.

 

Beautifully illustrated with large, compelling photos, this book teaches you how to take control of your photography to get that beautiful and realistic image you want every time you pick up the camera.
