Forget What You Know & Think About HDR Photography

Learn how to create beautiful and realistic high dynamic range photographs without having them look over-processed and gaudy.

Welcome to the new standard in mastering professional HDR photography techniques. Forget what you currently know and think about HDR photography, the SLR Lounge HDR Photography Workshop Collection has been designed from the ground up to educate photographers on how to create beautiful and realistic high dynamic range photographs. Whether you are a professional photographer or an avid enthusiast, this 13 hour workshop on DVD will guide you through every step of creating amazing HDR photographs from prep to post.

The HDR Workshop Collection is instructed by our very own Post Production Pye and includes 140 total videos organized into a simple and intuitive player. Not only will you learn the ins and outs of HDR photography techniques, you will have the opportunity to work through up to 25 full HDR images from start to finish.

Note: The digital downloads include large exercise files and HD video files which add up to several gigabytes. For those with slower internet connections, this may require long download times. In these situations, we suggest that you let the downloads run overnight or you simply purchase the physical edition.

Types of HDR Photography Taught

Bracketed HDR Photography Tutorials – We teach you the best ways to get clean bracketed HDRs, from choosing the right scene all the way through to the execution and post production.


Night Time HDR Photography Tutorials – HDRs can be done at night as well; and we teach you how to make the most out of the dynamic range in low light scenes. At these slow shutters, you’ll be able to capture the motion in the water, the cars, and other interesting aspects.

Single Shot HDR Photography Tutorials – You do not necessarily need multiple images to create a stunning HDR image. We teach you how to get HDR images from just one single exposure.


Panoramic HDR Photography Tutorials – Multiple HDRs can be combined to create panoramic HDR composites. We teach you how to compose, shoot, and post produce these images.

Black and White HDR Photography Tutorials – Of course, HDRs can also be turned into stunning Black and White images. We teach you the considerations and the techniques to do this.


Recommended Software for HDR

The HDR Photography Workshop on DVD focuses on teaching techniques rather than the specifics of software. Below is the software that we will be using throughout the DVD, but keep in mind that the “alternatives” are also great options that will work just fine in most situations. In either case, if you are more familiar with one of the “alternative” software options, those will be the better choice since you can follow the techniques and processes at a good speed.

  • Recommended RAW Processing – Lightroom 4 and up (5, 6, CC and up)
  • RAW Processing Alternatives – Lightroom 3, Adobe Camera RAW, Aperture, Capture One
  • Recommended HDR Processing (SLRLOUNGEHDR for 15% off) – Photomatix Pro 4
  • HDR Processing Alternatives – NIK HDR EFEX
  • Recommended Layering & Retouch – Photoshop CS6
  • Layering & Retouch Alternatives – Prior versions of Photoshop, Photoshop Elements

    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.

  2. Christian Boecker

    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! :-)

  3. Deborah Parrish

    What great folks! I bought this by mistake but realized I’ve always been interested in HDR, so took a chance. What a good decision! So much great information. I’m thrilled to learn more.

  4. Brandon Dewey

    This is a great workshop DVD. If you every want to lean or learn more about HDR Photography this is the DVD workshop for you! I would highly recommend this to a friend.

  5. Jason Fontana

    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 https://photo.jasonfweb.com in a few days if you want to see some real world user examples!

  6. Wendell Fernandes

    Great product though!

  7. Peter Hartland

    I purchased this sometime ago & watched it a few times always gaining more & more tips. It is great now making a HDR image & nobody can tell it is HDR just a great image. Thanks

  8. Dick Raymond

    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!

  9. Scott Nguyen

    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!!!

  10. ed bickham

    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.
