    Default Newbie HDR question

    Hi, I have never tried HDR and may want to attempt my first try. What software do I need to achieve HDR using steps that are easy for a beginner? Thanks!

    Photomatix Pro is easiest to use.

    Photoshop is a bit more complicated.

    u also need abt 3 or more exposures of the same photo to do a HDR.

    no need tripod also can.... juz shoot in raw....
    later during pp u make 3 different levels of exposure for that photo....
    and save each individually.
    then cn combine using photomatix....

    Shooting 3 individual frames will carry more pixel information when doing HDR/tone mapping and will give u a cleaner image. I would use tripod when possible..

    one of my friend yapster used to do handheld bracketting as well worth a try if u have steady hands and where a tripod is not available.

    Hmm... Was wondering what "package" of the photomatrix you guys ordered?
    Is the plugin for photoshop necessary?
    The plugin for lightroom seem like a standard in the package itself.

    Anyone?

    Get it as a standalone program, easier to work with.

    Hmm~ what are the benefits of working standalone? care to share your experiences?
    Apart from that, is the lightroom plugin any good?

    thanks~
