Double your dynamic range on single files.

HDR should not be nasty and overcooked! I'm Gavin and I used every HDR method. But wanted natural HDR without plugins, or bracketing! I created NHDR and spent years refining recipes that work natively as presets in Lightroom + Capture One. Get shadow and light without without beating it to death and max dynamic range on every file.

much more pleasing in my opinion than tone mapping; … I give Seim presets a 5 star rating…

Why 1 file HDR gives you better results.

Overcooked HDR makes photos look scorched and nasty. It took me years of working with and teaching HDR techniques to refine the formula for great dynamic range that works on any single file. People said that was crazy and I stuck to my guns and the result speaks for itself. Better results in less time. It's the power of leveraging the native tools in our apps.  

Natural HDR 4 gives you the power to reveal every drop of your light without crushed tones, or overdone color. Perfect skies, skin, streets, and BALANCE. It takes you where you need go fast, so you can spend more time doing what you love.

Every file is different, so Natural HDR lets you find the formulas you need in seconds instead of hours.

Dyna-Fast: Ultra one-clicks.  
Make dynamic range easy no matter what you shoot with instant dynamic range extraction and light balance fixes to get your HDR right, in seconds. .

Ai masks + Dynamic-Drops:
New powerful quick modes focus on color mix or on tone, leaving the other settings alone. Then transform skies and more with fast Ai grads and masks.

Silver-HDR and bold color:
From clean ultra wide dynamic range.  Atmospheric street color, portraits or the new Silver-HDR black and white, Natural HDR 4 includes it all.

*Note that some tools like Ai Masking are only available in the latest versions of LR. But for legacy and Capture 1 users we tweak everything as finely as we can get to constant rich HDR across every software you use.


ONE RAW file is so full of  magic!

Like negatives in our film cameras, RAW files are not meant to be ready "out of the camera". Natural HDR can edit a merged or blended or bracket file. It can edit a JPEG. But for the best results, a simple RAW file gives You the control.

Let me tell you story. In the early days we were overthinking HDR. We were so focused on stacking files and special software that was more about that gritty style. But in time I realized HDR was ONLY about light. The rest was just a personal choice and was often over-done. So I solved the one file HDR puzzle and today its' unreal what's inside a single file.

7 Years of tinkering and formulating has made Natural HDR 4 amazing for any photo. Whether a gentle dynamic range balance or an intense RAW to print conversion like this.

YOU can create this shot from RAW to ready in 15 seconds with Natural HDR!

Expose well and use good formulas. That's what HDR needs. It's nothing you can't do yourself given enough tinkering. But my Natural HDR 4 makes those formulas easy for you. It puts them into presets or styles that work like magic in your editing apps.

Natural-looking HDR is best from a single file - How am I getting so much light from single files? If you watch the training video below shows you hands-on. The best part is there is no catch and it's not hard.

HDR was never supposed to be a messy over-cooked "style". IN the early days I watched with frustration as most of us taught it wrong. HDR was made into an eddy, usually ugly trend instead of teaching the formulas and concepts of using tone.

So For the past 7 years, I've been refining the formulas for perfect dynamic range on any file. Now with the latest versions for LR and C1, we can do more than ever! It's unreal and it works, in single files, on any type of photo.

You don't want your photos to look like mine. You want them to look like yours!

Natural HDR 4 works by giving you tested, well-planned dynamic range formulas. It's using the native tools in our software. That means no plugins, no hassles. It means you can tweak it your way and make it your own.

You could spend hours doing this the hard way and tinker for years, re-treading where I've trudged. For some of you, that might be a fun journey. But I'm guessing you love shooting, not endless editing, right?

You'll see why you get better results faster with NHDR4. Guaranteed.

I'm Gavin Seim. I'm a Shadow Hunter

I started photography in 1997 at age 12. I'm a PPA Master, Hot One and Loan Collection winner and Lightroom expert. My images, tools and workshops have been featured in books and publications throughout the industry.

I was born in WA USA. I started working pro (using that word loosely as I sucked) using film at age 16. It was not easy to find training then and often I beat my head against the wall to win. 20+ years in the trenches earned me my Masters (M.Photog) from PPA but it taught me there's a lot more to learn.

Wanting something calmer, I moved to Mexico in 2017, exploring the magical light of the South while creating new tools and workshops as well as video and the Pro Photography Podcast.

You're rightly skeptical of photography tools in today's market. That's why all sales are NOT FINAL here. I guarantee each tool and workshop with my 31 day No-Regrets Guarantee! There's lots of videos, podcasts and free things here. So look around and if you have questions I'm here to help --
