  • Expanded Guide Book Techniques : Understanding HDR Photography

    This new series of Expanded Guides focuses on photographic techniques not only to give you a comprehensive grounding in the subject but also takes you a step further to enable you to get much more from your photography. Expert advice, with useful hints and tips, is given by professional photographers, using practical examples of techniques for clarity, illustrated in full colour with the aid of clear diagrams and charts. High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography is the process of shooting several images of a scene at various exposures, then merging them into one file. This produces photographs that are crisp and detailed, from highlights to mid-tones to shadows, full of drama and expressiveness. It's an effect that is similar to how we perceive scenes with our own eyes, although it can also produce impactful hyper-real images. HDR Photography is a comprehensive guide, written by a professional photographer in a clear and jargon-free style, to understanding the techniques of shooting and post-processing HDR images. Step-by-step case studies clearly explain the theory and practice of shooting and processing HDR images, with hints and tips that help to avoid the pitfalls of this engrossing genre of photography.

  • Canon 650D - The Expanded Guide

    The Rebel T4i/EOS 650D is the latest in a long line of Rebel/XXXD series of DSLR cameras that began with the Digital Rebel/300D camera of 2003. The Rebel T4i/EOS 650D builds on the strengths of its predecessors, making it the most refined model in the series to date. The camera features some intriguing new technology: the most significant change is the Hybrid CMOS AF system that improves the speed of focus when shooting still-images and movies in Live View. It's also the first Canon DSLR that can continuously autofocus when recording movies. Sound is important to the shooting of movies, and the Rebel T4i/EOS 650D is equipped with a stereo microphone (a first for the Rebel series) as well as a jack to plug in an external microphone. The Rebel T4i/EOS 650D is also the first Canon DSLR to feature a touch-sensitive LCD. Virtually all of the camera s operations can be set using the 3in. (7.7cm) LCD rather than using the physical buttons on the camera body. This includes setting menu functions, selecting the focus point in Live View and even firing the shutter once focus has been locked. To make the use of the LCD easier, the panel is hinged and can be set in a variety of positions allowing the camera to be used overhead or down low, close to the ground, more easily.
