! BONUS DVD ONLY WITH THE PRINT EDITION (NOT AVAILABLE WITH eBOOKS) ! In 2007, The HDRI Handbook was the first book to present this revolutionary new field to a larger audience. These days HDRI is a fully mature technology available to everyone.

It has been completely rewritten and is packed with practical hints and tips, background knowledge, reference tools, breathtaking artist portfolios, and inspiring interviews. The book includes dozens of new step-by-step tutorials. Beginners will get a methodically solid introduction and advanced readers will be able to refine their technique to perfection. Topics include: - Understanding the foundation of HDRI - HDR software comparisons and evaluations - Capturing HDR images: today and tomorrow - Tonemapping for creating superior prints - HDR image processing and compositing - Shooting and stitching HDR panoramas - Image-based lighting and CG rendering 2.0 updates include: - New cameras, sensors, and HDR beamsplitter rigs - Open Camera Controller for endless auto-bracketing - Correct RAW pre-processing and ghost removal - Dozens of practical, easy-to-follow tutorials - A structured approach to tonemapping, inspired by Ansel Adams - Set etiquette and tips for capturing HDR panos for visual effects - Seven artist spotlights showing unique perspectives on HDRI - Seven crossword puzzles: a fun way to test yourself !
