Today we got shown HDR photography and how it can help improve/un-improve your photographs,depending on your opinion. It was originally created by the moving image industry to make the quality of the films sharper.
Since 2004 Peter Lik has been known for selling the most expensive photograph for 6.5 million dollars. The photograph he sold was called Phantom, the black and white version of this photograph sold for more. Peter Lik goes the extra mile for his photography as he wants to capture them from close up,rather than with a telescope lens where he can’t see what he is capturing properly. I think he likes the danger of his photographs, the danger of where he is putting himself in certain situations where he might not of gotten out alive or not, only caring about what he captures not his safety.
For 15 years David Nightingale had taught photography,but after that he became a director at Chromasia Training Limited,he specialises in online photography and post production training. The photographs he produces are clear and crisp. The colours that are brought out when he does HDR photography are pure and bright. The colours are not over powering; they look soft and natural. Even though that some of his photographs are of simple objects or landscapes, his work still draws attention to itself.
Troy Ratcliff creates YouTube videos to help people create HDR photographs. He also has the videos on his website but they are longer,whereas the YouTube videos are straight to the point and quick (for what he is showing) The photographs that he edits to HDR are full of colour and detail. He definitely brings out the skies and clarity in the photographs,which gives him a unique style as he does it really well. Some of his photographs do look too overpowering and I’m not too sure on them but when they have a subtle kind of look to them (but you can still see the HDR feel to it)
