What Others Are Saying

“This book is a really great departure from the wonderful HDR eBook/DVD series that Trey has created. The contents of this eBook are thoughtfully laid out and touch on some visual concepts that really got me thinking about how I compose my images (I was especially keen on reading about the Golden Ratio). Trey breaks the mold here and offers the book in a landscape perspective, which I really enjoyed. The text and images look fantastic when read on the iPad, too. You won’t go wrong picking this up for yourself. Every page is solid.” – Brian Matiash

“Okay, I’ve read about composition and studied examples before, but this was outstanding. Reading the book, I was immediately able to identify some past mistakes with photos that didn’t quite feel right, and returned to them and recrop them into far improved compositions. I wasn’t bad at composition previously, but my successes were all often done by feel and ‘rule of thirds’, and all too often, it just wasn’t feeling right for pictures – in the future, I’ll be using your far superior points to make sure I get the shots I want.” – Kain

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.
