It’s Day 6 of Two Worlds in HDR . . . leading up to International HDR Day, on June 26th. Click here for more information (prizes, etc.) on International HDR Day.

Trey Ratcliff’s tip for today’s image: An Evening Stroll Around the Cabin – HDR can help capture the true mood of a warm cabin in the wild like nothing else

Rick Sammon’s tip for today’s image: Add a touch of Topaz Adjust to your Photomatix images and create artistic images. In HDR, you have a choice of Artistic or Realistic – and everything in between :-)

Rick’s NJ HDR Day: July 18!

Here’s a quick video I did on HDR imaging. Enjoy!

If you are totally new to HDR, you’ll need an HDR program to process your images, such as Photomatix.

You can get a 15% discount when purchasing Photomatix, make sure to use this code upon checkout: “DigitalPhotoExperience”.

Topaz Adjust can also help in expanding the dynamic range of an image, although it’s not a true HDR program. You can order Topaz adjust here. (Make sure to use the discount code “juanpons” for an extra 15% off).

Good luck to you all!

    In preparation for International HDR day, I’ve put together a blog post and tutorial for Sony NEX users wanting to use the built-in HDR mode tomorrow:

    I hope it’s useful to someone (or interesting for anyone who doesn’t have a NEX but is considering it!)
