Présentation de l'éditeur

When it comes to HDR, only three key ingredients are needed: hardware, software, and post-processing technique. Hardware is simple–there are only a few things you need to set up and shoot an HDR series. Software is vastly improved, making it easier for anyone to create an HDR image. The hard part is the post-processing technique. There are only two options: hours and hours of experimentation or The HDR Book.

Featuring real-world interviews with passionate HDR photographers, this updated edition of the popular The HDR Book, by Rafael “RC” Concepcion, is more than a how-to and different from any other HDR book out there. While other books on HDR tend to lean toward the esoteric or formulaic, this book takes another approach. It's a complete and total HDR workshop that teaches you the one thing that most other books miss— once you've tone mapped your image with HDR software, you're still not finished.

Within the pages of this book, you'll find 10 projects–now updated!–shot with everything from a point-and-shoot to a 37-megapixel, medium-format camera. The projects are designed to show you how the subtle differences in each scenario (lighting, subject, environment, etc.) dictate the post-processing needed to achieve one of the many final looks covered. You'll learn not only the different tone map settings RC used, but you’ll also learn the final steps taken in Photoshop to complete each image. Then, you'll recreate these looks your self using the exact same RAW files that RC used! Plus, you get four bonus images to play with and create your own look. The end result: a more intrinsic understanding of the nuances of HDR that will help you create the images you’ve always wanted.

Best of all, The HDR Book is written using the three top HDR processing programs in the industry today: Photoshop’s HDR Pro, Photomatix Pro, and HDR Efex Pro. No matter which program you use, you'll be able to follow along and create your own stunning looks in no time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Even an experienced HDR shooter can [re-] learn some tricks 27 avril 2014
Par Stephen Kalman - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've been shooting HDR for several years. I have RC's first edition, and books/videos from Trey Ratcliffe and others. I have several HDR software tools.

My style is photo-realistic. If you can see into the shadows but don't realize its a blend of exposures, I've done the job I intended. For the past year or so, I've been using the HDR tools inside Photoshop.I had been using Photomatix, but always struggling with oversaturation and halos so I moved away from it.

RC's second edition made me take another look at that tool. I find I really like it again, which gives me more alternatives, and that's always good. Even better, many of his examples are edited in the same style as mine (tho he does a far, far better job). One of the best features is that he makes his raw images available for download, which gave me the chance to edit as I always do, and then try to reproduce his results using the settings he suggests. That taught me some very interesting combinations of settings. I've made some of them into presets (he suggests doing that and shows how) so I'll only have to tweak rather than start from scratch. Bottom line: Better results in less time.

I was wondering if I should get the second edition, given my experience, my ownership of the first, and that my go-to tool was PS, not PMX. I'm really glad I bought it, and recommend that you do, too.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 3 HDR tone mapping software approaches plus post in Photoshop 14 juin 2011
Par Christine Merchent - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When it comes to reviewing photography/Photoshop books, it really depends on where you are in your development.

This book was spot on for me in my HDR development.

Stong points:
He takes you through HDR step by step. First he tells you how to capture the image, how many shots you need, a tripod, cable release, set bracket to under-even-over, mirror up, and why you should experiment with JPG. Oh my goodness, nobody who is any good admits to shooting, much less using JPG! But apparently the software companies are saying that HDR may do better with JPGs than with Raw. I'm definitely going to try it.

Then he gives numerous examples of things that lend themselves to HDR. Some of it is obvious, anything with really high contrast, and anything you want to have really high contrast. Some things, like the inside of a church, however, are not so obvious.

He uses the top three software tone-maping programs, Photoshop CS5's HDR Pro, Photomatix Pro, and HDR Efex Pro from Nik. In the process, he highlights the strengths and weaknesses of each program in that particular case. He admits to preferring HDR Efex Pro, but he uses all three programs depending on the image.

He has a large section on essential Photoshop techniques, adjustment layers, adjusting brush size, layer masks, New Smart Object Via Copy, (right clicking on the layer in the layer stack). All stuff that I use all the time.

He does a good job of describing his post HDR workflow in Photoshop. If you are a regular consumer of Photoshop User TV (a podcast) it will all look familiar, the famous merge up command, duplicating a layer then using a layer blend mode to darken and create a vignette, things that may seem sophisticated, but are easy to do.

It was such a relief to see that HDR creates a lot of junk in his images too. I thought it was just me, and that I wasn't neurotic enough about keeping my sensor clean. Halos too are a constant problem, and he works around that on occasion by dropping in a sky from one of the original exposures. Yes, it seems obvious now, but I was in the "I'm going to get this HDR to work!" mindset. There's more than one way to do that.

He even has a photo where he HDR tone maps the image twice targeting different areas of the image. Again, that's not something I would have thought of. He also uses Glamour Glow, a filter from Nik a lot on his HDR images. To me that was counter intuitive because HDR is all about detail and texture, but it was an interesting twist.

Weak points:
His before and after images were images he had tone mapped with HDR software compared to the same images with his Photoshop post processing. I think a stronger comparison would have been a single exposure image with the camera set on matrix metering compared to his final image.

Some of his images just didn't wow me. Unfortunately, the cover image in particular. But that doesn't diminish what I learned from the book. The book to me taught me technique. It's my vision used in combination with these skills that will make or break my images.

Then when you go to the companion website to the book, as of this writing, all the content isn't up. I wanted to see the video he describes where he talks about shooting for the basement (making sure your underexposed shot appears to have no detail). This is a foreign concept to me, so I'm eager to learn more about it.

The strengths of this book far outweigh the shortcomings. It's easy to read, understand, and emulate his techniques. I like it enough I will probably buy one copy for home, and one for the office.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book those looking too create realistic HDR photos 24 juin 2014
Par Tony - Publié sur

First of all, I have been a huge fan of HDR photography for some time, and I have been shooting HDR photography my self for some time now.

RC did a great job on this book, it is well written and designed for both beginners and experienced photographers. This book will help you too learn HDR or fine tune your HDR skills.

I also like that the fact that this book covers everything from photographing your subjects too post processing your images with the latest software. RC goes into depth about how he photographs and processes. He will go into depth about post processing as well. Step by step, showing you how he got the final result with different processing methods. The post processing chapters are where you will benefit the most, as you will gets the best tips, and information for creating realistic HDR images. He will cover Adobe Photoshop, HDR Pro, Lightroom, and photomatix. All great tools in creating beautiful images. I would highly recommend this book too both beginner and experienced photographers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Beautifully Illustrated 'How-To' Approach to HDR 3 mai 2014
Par KJKvam - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was worried that since I already had his first book this one might not offer that much more on the topic. I’m glad I was wrong. In this book RC spends the bulk of the book going through how he does HDR taking you step by step through a variety of different projects. Better yet he gives you links to his project files so you can download them yourself and work through his same steps or try your own versions to see which style you like best.

In the eight projects he shows you how and why he tone mapped the images in Photomatix and then takes you through his finishing the project in Photoshop. The book is so beautifully illustrated that I found myself just following along with his photos and then later downloaded the files and tried working through a couple of them.

Besides the big projects he also covers some of the more currently popular uses of HDR such as HDR in Black & White, Double Tone-Mapping and HDR from a Single File.

As I said, the book is so beautifully illustrated with his photos you’ll be inspired try HDR on more subjects than you might have thought to try it on, at least I was.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Unremarkable 13 décembre 2014

For a complete new enthusiasts to HDR, RC's book is ok, but to anyone with any experience with HDR, RC's book is unremarkable. I gave it three stars for his explanation of how not to do HDR when photographing residential interiors, otherwise, I would have given the book no higher than two stars because the other info was very, very basic such as, it is good to use a tripod, and set your camera on continuous.

HDR is a process of experimentation. You will need Photomatix 5.x, along with whatever image processing application you are comfortable with. And, time.
