    Hi peeps,
    can anyone recommend a good book on HDR photography?
    I have looked through the book review section and there doesn't appear to be any.
    Thanks
    Mark

    OK I missed that one.
    I searched for HDR and it didn't return any results.
    Thanks

    Seems to me that HDR is very much like sex. You can read up on it but you only get good at it by getting stuck in and experimenting yourself. Have a look at the HDRsoft web site, there's quite a bit of techy stuff on there, plus you can download a trial version of Photomatix Pro to play about with.

    And that includes taking off his vest.

    Hi Mark,
    I'd go with answersonapostcard's suggestion. Just about finished reading it. Very informative - from all the geeky tech stuff to side-by-side comparisons of the main HDR programmes and tips n tricks on making HDR's yourself.
    Good luck,
    Ian

    Quote: from the recommended HDRI Manual - HDR is fast becoming the most talked about aspect of digital photography

    It's also becoming the most over used, as well. A bit like Solarization and Posturization was, when they first became popular with the Camera Club fraternity. You couldn't blink, without out having a Solarized print thrust at you. More often than not, the same print would normally have been destined for the waste bin.

    Use HDR to enhance an already good photograph, but avoid using it for it's own sake.

    You only need to look at some of the efforts in here, to realise that HDR is not a magic wand to creativity.

    Good luck.

    Yes Boyd, I'm looking for a book on harmonica playing; Blues, Folk, Jazz, and Rock.

    Just saw, and heard, your favourite singer on the Jay Leno show; My God, he looks different with that silly beard, and he even sounds different. Hadn't seen him for ages.
