New from Rocky Nook: Practical HDRI, 2nd Edition by Jack Howard

Practical HDRI, 2nd Edition by Jack Howard

Rocky Nook announces the release of the new book, Practical HDRI, 2nd Edition by professional photographer Jack Howard. It’s all about High Dynamic Range Imaging using Photoshop CS5 and other tools.

HDRI is a multi-shot technique used to digitally capture, store, and edit the full luminosity range of a scene in ways not possible in a single captured image. Full luminosity? It means you get all those details in the brightest and darkest parts of your photograph, not washed out in the bright areas, not totally black in the shadows.

The new edition covers the HDR process from image capture through post-processing for web and print. Practical HDRI, 2nd Edition is richly illustrated with step-by-step tutorials for creating professional results using the leading HDR software, including the latest versions of Photoshop CS5, Photomatix Pro, FDRTools, Dynamic Photo HDR, and HDR PhotoStudio.

Howard instructs from experience as a photographer and a writer, with an emphasis on making the HDR process work for you.

Topics include:

  • Step-by-step tutorials
  • Basic and advanced workflows and workarounds
  • Web and print optimization
  • File management, keywording
  • Advice on cameras, gear, and software
