Photography Tip 5 of 10

Tip #5: Post process your photos. One of the things that I’ve heard a lot in photography is that some people don’t like post processing.

Better HDR Photography

HDR Photography won’t fix a bad photo Personally, I have processed hundreds of images using HDR, some have worked really well and some have been a disaster.
