“Learn Captain Kimo’s techniques for creating stunning HDR portraits.”

During my two month trip in Thailand I got the opportunity to photograph the locals and their culture. Using these photos I was able to produce very cool HDR portraits. The best part… these images were all from a single exposure RAW file! Many of my readers expressed interest in this new processing technique, so here it is!

This 70 page e-book will reveal all of the steps needed to create amazing HDR portraits form a single exposure. Included with this HDR Portrait E-book is a Photoshop Action to help simply the process. All you need to do is adjust the settings to your liking.
