- “…I guess if I should describe what this book gave me in one word, it would be “inspiration”. I read it in one go, and it left me wanting to immediately go out there and spend the rest of my life taking HDR photos.” - pg_bremen from Germany
- “I love this book. I think its a great combination of tech and art. I have had friends sit and look at the images who are not into photography and at the same time others who are that sat and read the tutorial. I think its a great book at a very fair price and I can not understand why anyone would not give it 5 stars.” – M. Hull
- “Whether you’re new to HDR photography, or you’re a full time pro, Trey Ratcliff’s book is a must have. Trey’s methods are meticulous and exact, producing exceptional results yet his style of conveying technique and process is laid back and … well, not what you’d expect from a professional photographer. Easy going and inviting are two words that describe the feel of this book as Trey leads you through pages of his own work along with how he got the final shot.” – W Browning
Inside the Book
The rich cover and interiors have been designed by the great French designer Fabien Barral, who also did the graphic design for the website. We have spared no expense in bringing you the highest quality book! More photos of the interior and other tidbits will be revealed in the next few months as we get closer to release.
Besides new and extended descriptions with various tips, the book will also feature several previously unpublished photos.
Because I like to teach by example, the book will feature a ton of photos that I consider to be some excellent examples of “HDR done right”. Whenever possible, I include tips and tricks and discuss the conditions of the shot. Often times, I also talk freely about various subjects that are related and help describe more about the way I think about these things. There are many thoughts and questions around human nature, the arts, science, religion, and more. This style has sprung up from the wonderful congenial and conversational style that has helped make this community so fun and exciting. I thank you all for your involvement, your passion, and your feedback. I appreciate it very much.
