About the eBook

It has been a while since I’ve written a new book, so I’ve had a lot of time to synthesize many thoughts. I’m very interested in the idea of beauty and figuring out what are those ineluctable things that can transcend the literal into the beautiful. I began this new eBook with an elongated piece about The Beauty of Ambiguity, which I hope you enjoy. I believe it will help you see a few things in a new way on your own path through photography. Beyond that story, I have also included my favorite collection of the most popular stories and essays from recent years. I’ve taken time to go revise them all and put them into a new context.

- An extended, new story called "The Beauty of Ambiguity" to help you to better understand your own concepts of beauty and how it can be explored through your photography
- Updated versions of the most popular how-to stories and essays that include everything from "9 Tips for your HDR Brain to Consider" to "HDR: It's About the Light"
- An updated and contextual collection of personal stories such as "The Chernobyl Story" to the first time I spent the day with Hans Zimmer
- Over 90 pages of hi-resolution content.

About Trey Ratcliff

Trey RatcliffTrey Ratcliff is a photographer, artist, writer and adventurer. Each day, Trey posts a new photo to his website StuckInCustoms.com, which receives over half a million monthly page views. Trey has over 10 million social media followers via , Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.

Trey is best known as a pioneer in HDR photography. Chris Anderson from TED called Trey a "pioneer of HDR photography." HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, a technique whereby multiple levels of light are captured for a particular scene and then combined into a single photograph. The resulting images are richly detailed and more closely resemble what you recall of the scene in your mind.

Trey's photo, Fourth on Lake Austin, was the first HDR photograph to hang in the Smithsonian. He has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOXand the BBC, and his photos have accumulated about 1 billion views. His best-selling book, "A World in HDR" sold out on Amazon in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. Using a unique teaching style based on curiosity and discovery, Trey has taught hundreds of thousands of people the secrets to his photography techniques.

Trey grew up blind in one eye, which changed the way he has come to experience and visually map the world. This, combined with his degree in computer science and math, has shaped his unique, algorithm-like, approach to capturing a scene that evokes more palpable memories.

Trey is also a successful entrepreneur. His endeavors include popular iOS and Android apps such as 100CamerasIn1, Stuck On Earth and Photo Voyages. In addition he launched Flatbooks.com, which is a rapidly growing eBook publisher.
