Need guidance to start in HDR


I know what HDR is. I have some sets of bracket images that I'd like to combine in HDR. But that's as far as I get. I need HDR for dummies or be pointed in the right direction. Is additional software required? Any recommended tutorial?

Get a good tripod first then know how to take bracketed shots.
Usually 3 is the minimum number of under exposed,one just right, and another over-exposed.
Next is get yourself the software and just take it from there.
The look will all depend on how you tweak the settings on the software.
A little photoshop also will help with those objects that you would want to superimpose after you have done the HDR and don't want to settle for just what the software gives you.
Oh yeah..different softwares yield different results too!
