More About the Author
Mr. Harmer, originally from Boise, Idaho, currently lives in Naples, Florida and enjoys photographing the beautiful oceanscapes and wildlife that Florida has to offer.
The author practices a wide range of photographic techniques and subjects, but specializes in HDR and nature photography.
In 2010, Mr. Harmer changed from Canon to Nikon. This allows him to teach photography to students who use either brand. Also, Mr. Harmer favors the consistently superior low-light performance of Nikon cameras.
In his personal life, Mr. Harmer is a full-time law student, husband, father of two children, and a Mormon.
Mr. Harmer's first book, "Improve Your Photography: How budding photographers can get pro results" sold rapidly throughout the world for its ability to explain the basic concepts of photography in a way that is simple to understand.
Subsequent to the first book, the author wrote "Improve Your HDR Photography" and then "Improve Your Wildlife Photography." All of Mr. Harmer's books are written in a casual writing style so as to aid readers in understanding difficult concepts without struggling to understand the author's language.

I did discover that I can highlight the chapter headings and in this way get a sudo table of contents in the list of highlights. Obviousy this seems silly when the publisher should have provided a real table of contents. I hope this will be useful to others in making an informed buying decision. I purchased several books from this series and they all have the same issue.
My only request for a future edition would be for chapters to be properly bookmarked so that I can go back and review them quickly. I especially like the section on HDR for monochrome images and will be returning to it periodically.
I went digital at 2000.
HDR always been interesting aspect for me and while I tried a lot to produce good looking results
I could not achieve it.
I choose this book and read it all thinking that it will help me in the process of HDR in my PC,
Unfortunately I found that this book doesn't touch (not at all) in processing your HDR shots in your favorite
Taking the HDR photos in your camera is the simplest and easiest task, but processing it is a hard long way to go.
In addition, the editing of this book is really interesting,
in the middle of one of the chapters you suddenly fall on credit note and copyrights of the various companies
names that been used in the book.
For me it was very strange how to author didn't noted that he miss edited the book before publishing it and writing
these copyrights in the end of the book or at the begging.
For conclusion :
This book touch only the aspect of taking the photos in the field
this process is easy and doesn't require any special experience in photography.
What this book actually lack is the process in the PC which is hard and require a lot of experience.
It guides you through the sliders and adjustments that can be done with Photomatix Pro to make your images pop, and also gives advice on black & white HDR photography, HDR portraiture, panoramas, landscapes, night photography, daytime HDR, on getting the cleanest images possible and even recommendations for gear.
This is a handy guide for reference when you're on a shoot, and is written in simple easy to follow language and terminology. It could have used more photo examples, but I would have had to view them from a color Kindle App or Kindle Fire (which I don't have as yet), so no great loss there. Your first tries at HDR will no doubt prove to be eye-openers, but keep in mind that the best images are the ones that are not "overdone" and totally fake looking.
This is one of the few guides on HDR available for Kindle, and is certainly a worthwhile investment if you want to improve your photography techniques.

I wish I would have found this book before the semester was over. I am not studying to be a photographer however this knowledge comes in handy I like this book. Somethings you just dont learn in school I never had someone explain HDR photography like this.
Get this book I am sure you will like it. if you are into photography or are a photography student, even professionals.
