I like HDR. Like the look. Not the Elvis-On-Velvet/Harry Potterish look, but a nice tone-mapped image, that brings texture, color and dynamic range.
RC has release “The HDR Book” some years ago and recently the 2nd edition of it. The inspiration of the post is that I just received mine! Still haven’t got the time to read it, but soon (I’ll “review” it when I’m done).
The book has this air of “the book to solve half your problems, so give me TWO of them” 🙂 It’s being acclaimed and is already a best seller in Amazon.
Another little piece of information about HDR is Trey Ratcliff’s new video. About 10 hours of tutorial video sold in his website, but the 40 minutes Sneak Peek has already a huge amount of information.
Get your prejudice to the side, open your mind and take a look at what HDR can do for your images. Forgive the abusers from the past, for they did not know what they were doing 🙂
