Do you want the best HDR Photography Workshop out there? This is it! This was my first SLR Lounge purchase, and it took me a little time to get into the groove, but once I did I was amazed by how much useful information I could pull out of this workshop. Pye does a phenomenal job explaining the fundamentals of HDR photography, walking you through camera settings and teaching you an impressive array of HDR processing techniques. The workshop even helped me improve my post-processing workflow! If you're interested in learning about HDR Photography, you don't even have to think about it... just buy this workshop.

A great tutorial! This helped me to optimize my HDR workflow. And also I was able to identify some serious mistakes, I was making until I saw this tutorial. Very good information at a very affordable price! :-)

I'm just halfway into the videos (Antelope Canyon) and I'm trying to reprocess some of my old shots (mainly using the single-shot HDR technique). My old processing looks aweful. This techniques really help you get natural results. I'm traveling to southwest US in November and I'm really looking forward to test some of these tricks. An incredible way to spend $80. I'll post some images to http://photo.jasonfweb.com in a few days if you want to see some real world user examples!

Where was this when I got into HDR? :( I Need to get this and start working in Lightroom instead of my crude and bulky Photomatrix software!

I pre-bought this book, sight unseen. I have all of the HDR books on the market and by far this is the best one out there. It contains all the basic information and goes beyond by offering composition and technical suggestions. As an instructor of HDR, I would highly recommend this book as a textbook. The published images are outstanding and it is very easy to read. Almost all of the pages are "dog-eared" from references. You cannot go wrong with this book. Excellent!!!

The series was a great learning experience and I look forward to putting these techniques to use in the camera and post processing. Thanks. Question: At Bryce canyon in the panorama shoot he said they shot from the hip and not on a tripod. Would someone email me an answer to how and why you would hand hold a panoramic shot with slow shutter speeds.
