Ben Willmore Creates High Dynamics Range Course With xTrain

xTrain™ and expert instructor Ben Willmore offer high demand High Dynamics Range Mastery for digital photographers

Dallas, TX, September 26, 2007 --( the leader in on-line video training for media, arts, and design, is excited to offer High Dynamics Range (HDR) Mastery, an on-line training session with expert Ben Willmore.

Currently xTrain’s hottest selling on-line training session, HDR, offers digital photographers the training they need to take their digital photographs to a new level. HDR is the process of taking a sequence of exposures, and then allows you to lighten your underexposed areas and darken your overexposed areas to better simulate what your eye would actually see. This technique creates photographs that will display a more dramatic and detailed picture worth more than a thousand words.

To date, Ben has personally taught over 60,000 Photoshop users on three continents. His descriptions of Curves and Channels are thought to be the best in the industry and his breakthrough teaching style of “not-just-how-but-why,” has made him the in-house instructor of choice for companies such as Mercedes Benz, Adobe Systems, America Online, the U.S. Airforce, Lexis Nexis and Fisher-Price Toys. His award-winning, best-selling book, Adobe Photoshop Studio Techniques is said to be “Arguably, one of the best Photoshop books ever written,” by Photoshop User’s publisher, Jim Workman. Ben’s latest book Photoshop CS3: Up to Speed is a new book concept focusing exclusively on the new features in Photoshop CS3. He is also co-author with Jack Davis of How to Wow: Photoshop for Photographers, and the creator of the best-selling Master Series videos.

One of Ben’s students, David McLauglin, comments, "This has to be the best, informative, fully capturing of the whole topic on-line course I've ever taken or seen. Congratulations to Ben, and anyone helping Ben put this on. I'm totally blown away." When you enroll in the HDR course, you can expect to learn about the limitations of your camera, how to process your HDR file, how to choose your subject, how to merge your exposures, and much more.
