Capturing what the eye sees.

The human eye/brain combination presents us with a much wider dynamic range of light and focus than any image from a camera can. However, it is possible to combine images to greatly extend what a digital camera captures. By combining images of different exposure in high dynamic range (HDR) photography you can make a photo that more accurately represents the scene you saw. The same is true of focus. The eye will make everything in most of our field of view in focus. A camera focuses on one distance. In bright light it's possible to capture a photo that has a lot of clarity, but in low light, what's in focus is pretty narrow. Again, by combining multiple images, it's possible to create a photo that captures a wide range of focus through focus stacking. Panorama creation is also covered.

Photographic Multishot Techniques explains how to achieve these results. It starts with an explanation of how to take photos for best results. It all starts with the camera. It presents a few programs necessary to work with multiple shots and walks us through the steps necessary. Strengths and weaknesses of each program are discussed with no apparent bias. Techniques are presented through examples that are clear. Both the why and how for each technique are included. It's simply the most inclusive multi-shot technique book available and creates a high bar for any that follow.

This book has changed the way I approach certain types of shooting situations, especially in low light or in scenes with high dynamic range. I don't process for the hyper-real look popular with many HDR photographer, rather I work to make my photos more representative of the scene as I saw it. I also use focus stacking with my closeup shots for the same reason.
