It’s Day 5 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: Reflections of Fitz Roy – The light and texture of mountains and sky are sometimes more easily realized with HDR.

Rick Sammon’s tip for today’s image: You snooze you lose. Get up early and stay out late to capture beautiful HDR images. Remember, there is no substitute for great light.

If you are just getting into HDR imaging, or want some ideas, check out our HDR books:

A World in HDR – by Trey

HDR Photography Secrets – by Rick

Also check out Trey’s new Textures tutorial DVD, it’s very cool. Trey will also has an HDR instructional DVD in the works, so make sure to keep an eye on http://stuckincustoms.com.

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!

Explore the light,
