4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as some reviews would have you believe 13 July 2012
Although this was originally an older book than 'The HDR Book' published by Peachpit Press which I reviewed elsewhere, it has been recently revised. I have not yet seen this revision but have read the older version. It is, I think, a much better and more usable book than another on this topic also published by Wiley. The issue with many of such books is that they will each reveal a personal approach and A's, B's and C's methods may be quite different although aiming to provide a similar, if not exactly identical, result. Sometimes, an author can be a little too self-centric and it could make their book just too personal.

Since this book was first written in 2008-9, Photoshop CS5 was released and introduced a few systemic changes. We now have CS6 and a few more changes and the book will therefore be a little behind the software it utilises. It is Photoshop which is usually recommended for the processing of the multiple images that HDR requires as it offers not only the layer tools but a variety of others so that the images may be modified to best effect for each of the (usually) three layers needed.

The process is complex but not impossible to learn and the book takes the reader through the entire process. Consequently, it is written for those who may either never previously tried HDR techniques or have tried it and need to have it better explained or need ideas, suggestions or other assistance.

I cannot claim that this is the best of those available, and there are others apart than those previously mentioned, but I know these three better than any other. It is about as good as 'The HDR Book' although they are quite different and you may want to examine one or both in person before deciding. You may then prefer one to the other.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid HDR Book 12 Aug 2013
By Jay Chatzkel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Learning HDR is relatively simple and not simple, at the same time. Simple with the available software - NIK for example, not simple in making the image not formulaic. Carr's book deals with both and gives a photographer the tools to know HDR and how you can make become more than an interesting treatment.

4.0 out of 5 stars HDR 25 Jan 2012
By Henry Bulger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
IT is class structured chapter by chapter with assignments and the end of each chapter. I gave it 4stars because I felt in the begining it was to slow getting started. Then they said it would not work well for close up work. However, afetr you get into it they do make reference how it can enhance your close--up work. Other tyhan that it is a good book.
