A Sneak Peak at “A World in HDR”

Peachpit, the book publisher for “A World in HDR“, has released the a sneak peak of the book for you guys! I think it looks great so far, and I’m excited for you to see it. You can visit the Peachpit site to take a look at the PDF. One important thing to note is that the PDF is not print-quality. So, the colors and resolution are not “full res”. The final book will be perfect color quality and detail, of course!

P.S. none of the photos below are “zoomable”, except for the “Grassy Roof” one… you can get into the Flickr larger size there. Or, alternatively, you can look at the details on the PDF file.

You can pre-order the book there from Peachpit, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Amazon, or you can pre-order here on the HDR book site on Stuck In Customs.  If you order here, it is a little more expensive, but you also get an autographed copy.  Even better, there is an option to get an signed Limited Edition Numbered print.  The only time I will be offering that is for this pre-order.  Once we stop taking pre-orders, we will no longer offer this print.  Collect it now! 🙂

  • Can’t wait to buy it 🙂
    Greetings from Germany!


  • casusan

    Congratulations Trey! Can’t wait to get the book! Wonderful excerpts from the book – interesting and informative as always! Super photos of course, you’ve picked all the ‘favs’ and then some!

  • I’ve gotten some tweets asking when the book will be out — Peachpit says it will be out before the holidays — so that is great news!

    MY part is done. Now we are just waiting on all the gears to get in motion! 🙂 It will be avail all over – Amazon, Borders, B&N, etc etc — so all that takes a while to coordinate.

    Sebastian – Peachpit is working on a landing page for international orders now.

  • Yes…here in Australia also…hurry up and make it available here!…Great Work

  • Awesome!

    Those three rules of composition are awesome!

  • Andrew

    Trey – will you be offering the autographed version with the additional photo print for international orders? I’ve been checking regularly to see if you are and still no mention of it. At least consider sending it to your fans in Canada hint hint.

    Thanks for everything you have done to promote HDR. I have learned a lot over the past few months.

  • Great work, Trey, so far that looks really good! I like the combination of personal experiences mixed with technical information. I have asked the publisher for a media copy to review the book.

  • Tromat

    Nice !

    Is there a french translation planned ? I can read it in english, but it would be more comfortable for me.

    Thanks for all, HDR is wonderful, and I’m glad I discovered your blog !
    What about, your slow motion (or picture, or something)video tutorial ? I can’t wait 😉

  • Absolutely amazing work! Especially for someone who does this as a “hobby”!!!!!! Can’t wait to pick it up.

  • Patrick

    Well done, Trey!

    I second Andrew here. I would love to be able to have an autographed copy
    shipped over to good old Germany.
    Also when I understood you correctly, it’s a better deal for you when we order it directly
    from you now instead of ordering it from Amazon later.

    Take care,

  • This book is going awaken new forms of creativity for so many photographers Trey, Can’t Wait to See the finished product in my hands. Congratulations Again!

  • I, too, am waiting for the book, Trey. Congratulations on the completion. I’m using it as a gift for my son as he was interested in how you do your photography. Can’t wait to view it myself when it comes in the mail!!!! Thanks for putting together all the info for the printing of it!!!! I’m sure all of those who post on here are really looking forward to having it in their hands, also. Getting excited, lol!!!!!

  • I’m looking forward to get the limited edition of the book in my hands 🙂

  • Looks amazing Trey. Congrats !!! I think you should give a couple of books away to some of your readers 🙂 Just need to find out how… But we sure would love it. LOL Regards

  • Congratulations Trey, I’m very happy for you! Thanks for sharing so much. Good luck on the sales! I’ve got mine ordered!

  • Thanks all – appreciate your nice words.

    Andrew – Except for the few international orders that slipped in before we cut them off (which we are still honoring, of course), we are not doing autographs or prints internationally. Shipping and logistics just turns out to be a big problem… there is no smooth way to make it happen. BUT, if I ever see you in person, I’d be glad to sign the regular book! 🙂

    Tromat – It might be good to ask @Peachpit about that – I know that I sold off international translation rights — but I don’t know which languages are getting done! 🙂

    Patrick – I do have a little Germany trip planned — I’d be happy to sign it if I see you around! 🙂

    Rodney – thanks – and thanks again for that interview – good stuff!

    Gail – hope it makes a good gift!

    Leo – there will be contests right around book-release time for sure!

  • Looks great Trey!

    I noticed a typo on page 19 (pg 7 of the pdf excerpt).

    In this sentence from the photo description:

    As for the coal length, I think I had it cranked all the way to 14mm to take this shot.

    I believe it should be focal length, not coal length. I thought ou might want to get this corrected before final printing. Otherwise, great work. I can’t wait to see the final edition sitting on my coffee table.

  • I preordered even before the “peak.” Now happy I did!

  • Rod Cole

    I can hardly wait to receive my copy. Sounds like it might ship earlier rather than later.

  • One more thing I noticed. On page 33 (pg 14 of the pdf excerpt):
    In this sentence from the page text

    The general public still has no idea what HDR is, and when people first see a printed canvas, they are always wonderfully perplexed as to how such a thing can exist on this mortal coil.

    Should coil be soil. It would seem to make more sense. I don’t mean to be nitpicking, these are just things that I have noticed.

  • Jeff – Whoops – I think you are seeing maybe an earlier PDF that is not going to the printer – but i will let the editor know! – also “Mortal coil” is a term… hehe not sure where it came from, but means “the earth”

  • Not only do you stir the eye but the spirit as well. I eagerly await my autographed copy. Take care and travel safe.

  • Pre-ordered it already , can’t wait to have it in my hands . Thank you Trey !

  • Noah

    Hi Trey,

    I ordered your book almost a month ago and am loving the sneak peak. I love not only the pics but the text alone with it. I can’t wait to get the publish date as ‘before holidays’ could be next week 🙂 .


  • Noah

    Hey, just went to peachpit and it shows a December 9th release. Can’t wait!!!

  • Congrats! I hope that one day I can follow in your footsteps!
    I can’t wait to get the book!

  • Looking forward to this book. From what I’ve seen my favourite pic is the “Magic of Disney”

  • Seems really interesting. Is going to be translated to Spanish?

  • Thanks!

    The publisher is translating into a few languages – at least, they own those rights – so we will see!

  • paul cowell

    Trey – still need your help. I have mailed your business mail address for an update but no reponse as of yet. I would like to know what will happen to my pre-order for the international shipment that i placed on the first day of the book launch – i am concerned that i will not get the signed print ? Please can you have somebody respond. thanks

  • THanks for your note. Your order should not be a problem. We are sending you an email to confirm — thanks for following up! 🙂
