HDR Tools, Tips and Techniques in Three Hours

Rob Sheppard, editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine, National Geographic contributer and author of over 30 photography books will present a 3-hour webinar covering the ins-and-outs of producing realistic nature HDR (high dynamic range) photographs.

Rob is a laid back, easy-going guy who has a knack for getting his point across in clear, simple English. His years of experience as an award winning photographer combined with his skill as an editor make it possible for him to cut through the clutter and reduce complex topics to easy-to-understand explanations.

Black Rapid, Topaz Labs, MediaChance and Everimaging have donated door prizes for this webinar. In all, we have 18 gifts donated by four companies. Follow the link as we reveal all the cool door prizes you can win in Rob’s HDR webinar and Gloria Hopkins’ webinar on Composition.

Black Rapid

Black Rapid designs the most innovative camera straps since before Henri Cartier-Bresson roamed the streets of Europe in search of the decisive moment. Designed not only for quick deployment but also, maximum comfort, Black Rapid has redefined and refined a basic component of photography. During the webinars, we’ll give away six Black Rapid straps.

Topaz Labs

Regular readers know how enthused I am about Topaz Labs plug-ins for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. Like all products I recommend, I buy my Topaz Labs software at regular prices so I’m not biased when I promote products. I genuinely like and use Topaz Labs software on a daily basis. Topaz Labs has donated copies of Adjust and Detail, two of my favorite plug-ins.


Roman Voska, developer and publisher of MediaChance software is a veritable whirling dervish of software development. He develops more programs in less time than any other programmer. Digital Photo-HDR is one of Roman’s coolest programs. It’s a complete HDR program with great features not found in most other HDR programs. I’ve been using Digital Photo-HDR for nearly five years and it just keeps getting better. Roman has generously donated several licenses to be given away during the webinars.


A relative newcomer to the field of HDR software, Everimaging has staked out a position in the area of fast, realistic HDR tone mapping. If you’ve ever used other HDR programs, you know rendering times can seem interminable. HDR Photo Pro is fast, nine of ten controls work in real-time meaning the changes occur as you make adjustments. Everimaging has contributed four licenses for their pro version, valued at $129 each.

Cool Site of the Week

Rob Sheppard turned me on to this site. It has loads of great information but it’s a bit difficult to navigate. I think the difficulty is due more to sensory overload than bad design. I wanted to watch 3 videos, read 4 articles and view 15 photos, all at the same time. Here’s one article that I found fascinating. I saw some photos created with Helicon Focus software about 2 years ago and was blown away. The photographer was a 17 year-old who had just won a national photography competition.
