New Book Release: Practical HDRI
In Practical HDRI, well-known expert Jack Howard leads the reader on an exploration into the exciting new frontier of High Dynamic Range Imaging. HDRI is a method to digitally capture, store, and edit the full luminosity range of a scene in ways that are just not possible with a single captured image.
Jack’s illustrated text is easy to understand as he takes one from the initial image capture and into the digital darkroom. Here is where the reader will learn to use this cutting edge photographic technique to achieve spectacular results.
Covered are the most popular and effective HDR programs such as Adobe Photoshop CS3, FDRTools, Dynamic Photo HDR, Photomatix Pro, and more.
• Illustrated step-by-step tutorials
• Basic and advanced workflows
• Post-production optimization for both web and print
• File management
• Advice on cameras and software
• A wealth of HDR images, ranging from subtle to surreal
• Real-world shooting tips from Jack’s personal experiences as both a creative photographer and photojournalist.
HDR imaging for the photographer can be challenging and frustrating for the uninitiated, as it involves both field and computer expertise. However, Jack Howard explains this complex subject matter in a practical way that will not intimidate the beginner, nor bore the experienced photographer. The emphasis is on the creative process and how to make it work for one—rather than the science behind it.
