With all that you should be ready to head out on your own and start making some…high dynamic range images.…As I mentioned at the beginning of this course, HDR is just one tool that you…have in your shooting arsenal.…It's great for some images, not for others.…One of the trickiest things about learning it though is learning when it is…appropriate, how you can use it to shape an image, when it might be good for one…situation and not another, and like most things about photographic technique,…the only way you're going learn that is practice.…So don't forget that HDR is a tool if you can employ. Get out, try it in lots of…different circumstances, and see what you end up with.…
