What is HDR?

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, is a technique to add vibrancy, and detail to your photos.

With HDR processing, you can see both the very dark and very bright portions of the scene. HDR does this by taking multiple shots of the same scene each with a different shutter speed.

In this course, I'll show you how to use your camera to take the multiple shots needed for HDR, and how to merge them together.

What This Course Will Teach You

You'll discover what subjects are best for HDR; the two step process to create the source images; and how to use free or paid editors to merge into one HDR image.

I've helped more than 468,657 photographers improve their photography with my easy step-by-step courses.

I can improve your photos too!

What's In The Course

This is a free 5 day course on HDR Photography.

We'll start with the basics:

  • the best kinds of scenes for a HDR shot (and which scenes to avoid)
  • how a HDR image is created
  • what settings to use on your camera for the source photos

Then we'll build on that knowledge to further improve your HDR creations by showing you:

  • how to merge the HDR images together using an image editor
  • creating photos with eye-popping color and glorious detail
  • merging with a free online HDR program
  • the common problems associated with HDR, and how to avoid them

This level of detail just can't be achieved unless you create a HDR image

No Jargon - Use ANY Camera!

I've avoided using technical jargon in my courses and ebooks, so you'll get amazing insights; even if you're new to photography. And when I use a term that not everyone would know, I link to a separate article that fully explains the term.

And you can use your current camera! My techniques work for Point and Shoot, Bridge and DSLR cameras!

About David

My name is David Peterson and I have been teaching photographers all around the world since 2005.

My motto is "Help the world take better photos" and I plan to continue to do this by providing free photography tips on my website.

Unlike most other photography teachers, I realize that most people don't need to know the technical details of their camera to take a great shot. So my courses explain every technique in a non-technical way along with lots of examples.

It is my hope that on this website, I can help you come to that same realization too!

I've attended a few courses on photography including the on-line course. But none of it that gave me a straight and layman explanation until I received your secrets of photography. Even with the early few secrets, I have tried and got wonderful and meaningful images that I have been trying all these years. Thanks David for your brilliant and systematic approach.
