I’ve been creating HDR photographs for about ten years, so I am well-versed in this topic!
There are a number of HDR Software packages available on the market. Some are free and some cost money. I’ve tried the vast majority of these packages. Because this site is considered on of the top HDR Photography websites on the web, companies often send me their packages to test. It’s always been my goal to find the easiest and most robust software. Regular fans of the site know that I only review and recommend software that I actually use. I have two recommendations depending on what computer you use to edit your photos.
I co-developed Aurora HDR
Roughly 18 months ago I partnered with the amazing team at Macphun to develop an entirely new HDR software tool called Aurora HDR. I worked closely with them to include all of the features I felt was missing from Photomatix, Lightroom and other tools in my quiver. Since it’s release over 1.5million people have downloaded it. I’m blown away! Thank you for believing in us!

I have a FREE HDR Tutorial here on StuckInCustoms.com that describes the step by step process. If you’d like to dive deeper, I also have video tutorials for Aurora HDR. The tutorials show how I use the tools for a variety of situations… landscapes, sunrise/sunset, people, motion, etc..
You do not really need a special type of camera, but I do have my HDR Camera recommendations here on the site. There is a bit more explanation there, in addition to a description of my own personal gear.
Below are some sample HDR Photos that I’ve taken.
