About the Book
This is a practical handbook designed to give beginners a complete overview on the high dynamic range (HDR) picture making process.
HDR enables us to record more detail and more tone in a processed digital image than we could possibly do using one straight shot. This 80-page book comes packed with great 'how-to' information drawn on years of practical and teaching experience.
'Basic HDR' covers the absolute basics plus a range of more advanced shooting and processing techniques. These include troubleshooting and post-processing strategies using (predominently) Photomatix Pro, but also Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. Written in plain, clear English, this is the perfect introduction to a technique that's considered something of a 'rising star' in photographic circles...
I have been in the publishing business for 18 years but now spend more time teaching through the Centre for Continuing Education at Sydney University and through the Perfect Picture School of Photography (www.ppsop.com). I teach DSLR camera courses, DSLR Video, compopsition, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, Macro, Portraiture and much more... I also lead dedicated photo tours to beautiful parts of the planet such as South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Morocco, Oman, Japan, and Bali. Currently most of my tours are organised through Academy Travel in Sydney. www.academytravel.com.au My blog: robinnicholsworkshops.blogspot.com
