In keeping with the #HDR #Photography work for this week (my new book is out. Please consider getting it here: http://bit.ly/rchdrbook2 ) I wanted to post a detail shot I did when I was out in Nelson, Nevada this past year. HDR works great for small items as a lot of the details and tonality can really pop out. Enjoy!!
Just wanted to thank everyone for getting The #HDR Book of to a great first day! Totally appreciated. If you havent already considered it- head on over to Amazon and check it out!
I brought my copy home to read last week and I gotta tell you --- he totally rocked it! RC wrote a blog post about it today -- if you've got a sec, here's the link: http://bit.ly/1tzjE4G
Have you guys seen the new #Twitter profile page? I really like the look - does reming me a lot of Google+ . Added a profile header of a picture I did in St. Lucia at Jade Mountain. Click on it big... 3000px Wide!!
Figured hey.. twitter update and #Earthday in one shot. #mybeautifulearth
It's absolutely beautiful outside today so I'm on the deck (along with Peaches) where I'm working on my review of 's new HDR book. I was super lucky to get a preview of the HDR book (second edition) last week before it was available and RC absolutely killed it.
If you don't want to wait for my full review that's totally cool. It's available on Amazon.com now so you can get your copy here:
If you're into HDR photography this new book is a great resource and it's packed with some incredible images. So go buy your copy now and later tonight you can read my full review while you're waiting for your copy to arrive.
During my visit to Tampa I was lucky to get a preview of 's new HDR Book. He had three brand new copies on his desk ahead of the official release and it was really cool to see something before most people could. A few days ago I wrapped up my personal review of RC's new book and now it's up on Sony Alpha Lab.
It's no secret that I'm a big fan of RC's work but when I review anything I set friendships aside and just focus on what's in front of me. This book really delivers the goods and I'm happy I could give it a very positive review.
You can check my full review out here:
Congrats RC -- you totally crushed it on this new edition. Here's the link to the book on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1f5wraV
This is a shot of the #Twitter profile page with the new banner pic. Want to learn how to change it? Check out this link here: http://techcrunch.com/2014/04/22/how-to-get-new-twitter-profile/?utm_campaign=fb&ncid=fb
The thing I haven't figured out is how to set the page the public sees. Take a look at Scott's page then take a look at Terry whites page. Yours looks like Terry's and everyone else on your team looks like Scott's (different picture's but same landing page)
Oh Happy Day!!! The book that i’ve been working- The HDR Book 2nd Edition on is finally in stock and available to order! This has been a labor of love for me, and I am very thankful that the folks over at #Peachpit for jumping in back with me on another run into the world of #HDR. The first book did extremely well – but (as with anything software related) software changes, photoshop changes, technique changes.
I figured this would be a good spot for me to give you a couple of points on this book for those who may be considering it. For those of you who have the first edition – I wanted to share how this book could also help:
A Step By Step Process in My HDR Workflow
This book takes you through a series of images and shows you how I come up with the HDR look that I love. We explore ten different projects and take you through step by step until the project is completed.
You Can Download the Files for Yourself
All of the projects in the book are yours for you to download. From single image HDR files to HDR Panoramics. You can download the full resolution RAW files for you to work along with me. You are free to do whatever you wish with these files. I would appreciate you telling someone where you got them – perhaps theyd want to learn from the book too!
HDR is Not Hard. Post Processing is the Pain
This book does cover the process of making an HDR file – but I got to be honest. Making an HDR file is easy. There are a couple of things you need to consider – but its really easy. The harder part of all of it is really how to post process the file. With the post processing skills you can take an HDR file and turn it into a great HDR file.
Using Photoshop CC and Photomatix 5
One of the things that I wanted to do in the book is focus on just the programs that I use to make images. In the first version, I covered all three pieces of software – HDR Efex Pro, HDR Pro from Photoshop, and Photomatix. As these pieces of software were revised, i found myself gravitating towards the look of #Photomatix . So much so – that its what I decided to cover in the book. Photomatix is the software almost everyong using HDR uses – so we can really make this a more focused release. The book does also use post processing plugins from people like and the companion website features videos on how to take it to the next level using plugins from +onone and .
Where to Order the Book From?
The book is now in stock available at Amazon. You can use this link: http://bit.ly/rchdrbook2
