Why Shoot HDR? I LOVE HDR — Free Copies of New Book

TTLBAR

Ipad_Promo_0004_Layer-Comp-5

I just released a new book all about HDR Photography with my buddy Scott Bourne. If you would like to learn more about high dynamic range (HDR) photography, check out my new book for Apple iPad. It’s called “Secrets of HDR.” It’s only $2.99 and covers all the essentials. We’ve written this book with a simple goal. We want to share our love of “tasteful” HDR photography. While there are fans of extreme HDR, we prefer a more subtle approach. We couldn’t find any books on this more realistic approach to HDR so we wrote one!

Free codes are sprinkled into this article. Redeem on the front page of the iTunes Store by cocking the Redeem link in upper right corner). A code can only be used once. First come, first served.



From the intro...

Why Shoot HDR?

While it may seem like a silly question, there are actually several reasons to shoot HDR. We personally don’t ever shoot a landscape or a cityscape without also shooting it in HDR. It solves so many problems and it’s better safe than sorry.

Our personal approach is often far more reserved than some photographers. Generally speaking we prefer HDR photos that are closer to what the eye can see. Our goals are generally tasteful and subtle.

However, how much HDR to use is a personal choice. There are lots of opinions on what’s acceptable and that’s a good thing. The techniques used by all HDR shooters can be adapted to most styles of shooting with both aesthetic and technical benefits.

iPad Only?

The book is only available for iPad owners. This is necessary in order to take advantage of all the interactive features available in iBooks. Our update includes a whole chapter on post-processing with 12 video tutorials. That’s right – this is a book but it contains video training. There are even quizzes so you can make sure you’ve read and understood the material. We’re very excited about this book because it uses all the tools available in Apple’s iBooks Author to create a fully interactive experience. You’ll not only be able to read the text, but you’ll find video, audio, motion graphics and more.
We will continually update the book and the great thing about Apple’s iBooks is that we can push those updates to buyers free of charge.
