Last July, I wrote a Photomatix tutorial which was aimed at beginning HDR photographers. Due to the release of Photomatix Pro version 4, which is significantly more packed with features than its predecessor, I have decided to start anew and write a new review and tutorial. Like my previous tutorial, I will start out with providing some basic information about HDR photography, as well as provide some helpful tips for beginners on things such as camera settings. HDR photography has generated a certain amount of controversy among photographers. There exist photography purists who hate HDR and think that it’s both ugly and a form of cheating. Among these photographers, it is thought that achieving the perfect exposure with a single shot should be the goal. On the opposite end of the spectrum there are photographers who prefer the “no holds barred” look in HDR. Colors are deliberately over-saturated and perspective is obviously and dramatically skewed for artistic impact.
