Secondly, Davis, through his examples and explanations, helps the photographer to understand how HDR as a technique can be used to enhance one's images regardless of the subject matter. Most HDR books focus on the use of HDR techniques for the enhancement of landscape and urban architecture images. He helps us to understand the traditional subjects for HDR but also teaches us how to enhance unlikely subjects, from portraits to flowers, using his techniques.
Finally, Davis takes the reader on a journey of learning the value of layers and masks to hand-blend images taken in an HDR series of photographs. These skills not only aid the reader in improving post-processing skills in general, but to also create very unique HDR images. Such techniques lead the photographer through the process of creating very realistic images, a skill that is sometimes lost in the myriad of HDR software packages and enhancement filters.
Davis, in two of his previous works, The Photoshop Darkroom and The Photoshop Darkroom 2, lays the foundation for helping the photographer to understand the value of exploring new and unique combinations of techniques. This approach prepares the reader of his HDR book to continue the journey of using interesting and innovative methods to create images based on this popular form of photography.
This book would be a good addition to many photographers' libraries of HDR books.
