A Plea for HDR

This is an article I ran across on Facebook. I don't know Alexandre Buisse, and until now I have not seen his work, but he does some wonderful stuff. If your shooting and processing HDR or even considering doing some, I strongly suggest that you read his article.

I have just finished Joe McNally's new book "Life Guide to Digital Photography: Everything You Need to Shoot Like A Pro". I can tell you, it's amazing. There are gems on every page. You can order it from Amazon.

The "Candid Frame" Podcast

Ibarionex Perello, photographer, teacher, writer and host of this very informative podcast that is nothing short of habit forming. His interviews with the likes of Joe McNally, Jay Maisel, David (the Strobist) Hobby just to name a few are insightful and educational. I download them for free to my itouch but you can also listen to them online. I'm sure you'll find them a very valuable resource.

Trey Ratcliff has a new downloadable version of his HDR Tutorial DVD set. . .

The Stuck In Customs crew has come out with a downloadable version of their very informative and successful HDR Tutorial. There are now 3 versions, Basic, Premium and now the downloadable. I can tell you that there is a ton of great information in the Premium set. From what I see on their site, this is a scaled down version. Even so, at the new price point of $99 I feel that their is still a great deal to be learned. Check it out here.
