Many Thanks

A special thanks to all the readers of my book, you made me number 1. May you capture the full range life has to offer!

I knew that photographers would begin to see HDR as a tool that offers a wide range of looks. Many of us, including me, labeled HDR as too surreal and felt it would be a fad. Well now, photographers are learning that HDR can offer a more conventional look; HDR images can look like a single shot AND offer lower noise in the shadows with captured highlights.

Here is an email I received last week from the publisher of my book:

Ferrell,
Just thought you might like to know that your book is #1 on BookScan, which is the data base that keeps track of all books sold in the US. Your book is outselling every other photography book in the country right now!!!

WooHoo!

  1. Congratulations!
    I even ordered mine from the States, despite living in the UK, as it would arrive more quickly.
    An excellent read and very helpful. There’s still a surprising amount of resistance to HDR, but I suppose that’s inevitable. The more people like you produce realistic images the more photographers will come round to recognising HDR as a valuable tool.
    Good luck for the future.

  2. A well-deserved place honor for you. I have read the book at least 10x and still re-read it every few days. The pictures are wonderful. Thanks very much for covering FDRTools, as well. I took your advice and purchased this in addition to Photomatix.

    Will you publish/post any updates as CS4 arrives (dealing with 32-bit tools, etc)?

    Thanks for the great tutorial, it helped a great deal as I learn this,

    steve
