Rob Hanson from writes about Captain Kimo and his eBook.

I first encountered Kim “Captain Kimo” Seng by the recommendation of a mutual friend who said that Kim was freely sharing tips and techniques on his website. Sure enough, on one of my first forays to Kim’s site, I picked up several valuable techniques that I still use regularly.

Since then, I’ve been a steady admirer of Kim’s outstanding HDR work and a frequent visitor to his site. I never walk away empty-handed, as Kim keeps putting his work, his ideas, and his personality ‘out there’ for all to see.

Today’s HDR marketplace is packed full of websites, blogs, and tutorials, and amongst these there are a few people who have risen to luminary status within the community. To get to that level, one has to have solid and consistent output, a steady visible presence, and be willing to share information freely with the rest of us. Kim has all three of those qualities.

This ebook is packed with goodies and information that will be useful to novices and more experienced HDR photographers alike. (I was taking notes while reading it.) Unlike some offerings in the marketplace, this ebook ‘over-delivers’ information relative to its affordable price, and that’s the Captain Kimo I’ve come to know. The tutorials are clear and concise, and the photographs are beautiful. In the book, Kim says that he’s always adapting and innovating, seeking to improve his photography. It’s hard to imagine, but if he does, I’m sure he’ll let us know how it’s done, and that’s a beautiful thing in its own right.

“You have written an exceptional eBook. I have read several books on processing HDR photos but your book has risen to the top. I am recommending it to our photo club as must reading. You should submit it to a publisher.”


“Kim, this is so well done!!! I love the amount of detail and step by step information you put into this. I love your dedication!!! It shocked me at first, but in a good way. Love it!”


“Truly, I’m VERY impressed. Love the layout and simplicity of the instructions. I’ve read a number of HDR books and your book is super easy to follow, especially for those who are new to this.”


“I have every hard copy book, every ebook and every DVD I could find on HDR and yours is by the far the best I’ve seen. What I like about it most, is the detail and explanation you go into on each step in the final HDR process.”

  2. Dear Captain Kimo,
    I just started the world of HDR photography and my only problem is the Night Shots. I must be doing something wrong. All the night shots that I’m taking, when I transfer them to Photomatix and the software merges them to HDR image the sky appears full of noise. I have tried ISO 100, ISO 6400 and even in Auto but ever time noise appears. Can you help me or tell if you have an e-book that tackles Night HDR Images.

  3. Hi, just got your ebook and love it. Question about your actions. I use Photoshop Elements 8 and was wondering if you could provide directions for loading the Captain Kimo Action into Elements 8. I’ve got it in the Documents and Settings>All Users>Application Data>Adobe>Photoshop Elements>8.0>Photo Creations>Photo Effects. In Full Edit it shows up under Effects as just one item instead of a choice of actions. The only thing that happens is a gradient mask and that’s all. How do I get the rest of the actions to come up. Would love to use them. Thanks

  4. Kimo, Awesome book. Like others, I purchased books from other HDR “experts”, and while their images are outstanding and their techniques clearly outstanding, their explanations and writing are something to be desired. Your book covers EVERTHING! I love the section on Halos. that is my biggest problem with HDR, as it is many others as well. I am glad Scott Wyden posted this to facebook! This is by far the best HDR tut book out there. Great job.

  5. Hi Kim,
    I’m hooked on HDR photos thanks to your wonderful e-book. I keep going back to it while working in Photomatix and am getting the hang of it thanks to your clear explanations. The one question I do have, though, is about your use of Topaz Clean. I’ve purchased it but come up with weird curls when using it, especially in leaves. What kind of settings do you recommend using with Clean. Love your photos!

  6. Captain Kimo,

    Many thanks for a great book and actions. I enjoy your site and your work. Many thanks for sharing with all. Best of Luck! You should publish on a wider scale I have yet to find better on the WEB!!!


  7. Just purchased your ebooks. Terrific stuff!! I’m a hobbyist (fortunately for me, I have a paying day job} and have limited time to devote to photography, still love it though. Any time I can find tutorials that have an appropriate amount of technique detail are interesting and help me understand how to make better pictures count me in! Your ebooks are one of these for me. Really high quality images, step by step instructions, easy to follow, not overly time consuming; I’ve used these techniques on my photos and…they work!!

    PS, I also have Trey Ratcliff’s ebooks on HDR photography, his are well done too, for me, I learned more from your series,

    Nice Job!

  8. Hi Kim,

    I’ve been waiting for your ebook and very happy to hear it’s now ready. Can’t wait to go through it and learn more from you. Your HDR photos have been very inspiring.

    Cheers, Quang

  9. Thank you for putting so much effort into a very well written book. The level of examples you give really sets this book apart from the others I have read on HDR and tone mapping. This is the kind of eBook that I will go out of my way to recommend to those asking about HDR processing because I know people learn best by examples. Photomatix packs a lot of power but its all those sliders and what they actually do that confuses most people and your examples and tips really help to demystify the tool.
