Create photos with subtlety, depth and vibrancy.
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.
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 465,599 photographers improve their photography with my easy step-by-step courses.
I can improve your photos too!
This is a free 5 day course on HDR Photography.
We'll start with the basics:
Then we'll build on that knowledge to further improve your HDR creations by showing you:
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!
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!
Your lessons are clear, precise and so easy to understand. The pictures you included really helped to cement the points.

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.
