High-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI) is a high dynamic range (HDR) technique used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than what is possible with standard digital imaging or photographic techniques

High-dynamic-range imaging (HDRI) is a high dynamic range (HDR) technique used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than what is possible with standard digital imaging or photographic techniques. The aim is to present a similar range of luminance to that experienced through the human visual system. The human eye, through adaptation of the iris and other methods, adjusts constantly to adapt to a broad range of luminance present in the environment.

I am a great fan of Michael Freeman's books and I own a dozen of them (especially those on composition which I highly recommend: The photographer's eye, The photographer's mind, The photographer's vision) which helped me reengage with digital photography after I stopped my 30-year passion when my last kodachrome roll came back unprocessed because the Kodak lab had closed...
This book is excellent for its content but I was extremely upset by the US publisher. In trying to save some pennies they issued a book in which all formal aspects are wrong: the size is too small, the typeface is too small (especially the captions), the comparative photos are post stamp sized and far too small to make differences visible, the page layout is confusing and the copy has not been proofread. I wish Freeman would re-issue this title with another publisher because I appreciate his style and language.

Arrived quickly and in great condition. This is a new method of Photo editing that I have not quite got the hang of. Apparently you take 3 photos of the same subject one overexposed and one underexposed. This allows you to clarify the darker and brighter. Especially the darker lost items. At least so far. A work in progress. Still reading it.

I'm a fan of Michael Freeman's work, and this book is no exception. Its a good presentation of HDR as it is today and covers enough technical ground to satisfy most Photographers. For a pure novice, some of this info may be intimidating, but ultimately necessary if one wants to excel using HDR. I'm a Photomatix user and I found Michael's presentation of Photomatix to be very helpful. His workflow section is a valuable addition to the book. My only complaint about the book is that many of the comparison photos are just too small to show the effects the author explains in the associated text. Other than this nit, I'm really happy with this book.

I was totally disappointed with this book!... its written for only those who have the mental capacity to
comprehend what was written in it.. So, I guess that puts me in the DUMMY class!...

160 pages of "total confusion"....yes, I guess its gotta be me who's confused!. No, I'm not saying that
the author know nothing about HDR....but, its simply a pretty tough to understand "TEXT BOOK" ..

I guess I expected too much?.....I buy quite a lot from Amazon, but this time I lost out.
AND, the examples are so freakin' SMALL, that its rather difficult to see and read.

I would suggest you don't buy this book, UNLESS YOUR A ROCKET SCIENTIST who can decipher
through the mess!...

The insights from your book are exactly what I needed to move my HDR
photography forward. Really great and I mean that. I'm an IT guy by
trade and it sure helps me to understand more about under the hood and
what reactions from my actions I can expect.

Also the areas of human perception is a major plus.

Thanks for publishing this!

Having already Christian Bloch's and Ferrell McCollough's texts on HDR imaging, I was intrigued by the accolades given to Michael Freeman as a writer by some of the readers here, and I got this book as well.

In fact, this book does not stack up to the both other works on the subject. Author often meanders into philosophical issues of composition, like the "Gestalt theory", instead of analyzing the issues of high dynamic range.

Bad are the example images, in many cases almost in the size of a post stamp. I could not make up any details in many of them, they are often that small. This problem was amplified by the print technology used by the publisher. Do you remember the early color print, in which you could see strange hexagonal patterns of color dots? Well, you can see them here too, and when such artifacts appear on these tiny images, their practical value is close to zero.

Some other critiques here called this book too technical. I am sorry to disagree. On this aspect I am on the very opposite side of the scale: This book is virtually devoid any technical details. It is the "blah blah" type of text, to use the vernacular.

Take rather Ferrell McCollough (not too technical, fantastic photography) or Bloch (technical and very comprehensive, rich in detail). You can skip this book.
