for High Dynamic Range Photography. There are varying degrees of
understanding and beliefs as to what can and can't be considered
as HDR. As well there are differing tastes as to how to get there.
Whether it be through the use of particular software which specifically
cater to the creation thereof or whether it's a matter of simply
using a layering process within something like Adobe PhotoShop
CS2. Mind you, some of the software used for this aim includes:
PhotoShop CS2 itself, PhotoMatix as well as others.
I won't pretend to be an expert on the subject since I'm far from
it and merely a novice. What I do know is that I've come across
a small variation of what folks out there consider to be good HDR.
Personally I think it's a matter of one's choice and taste. There
are photos within the collection found herein which are quite life-like.
Then there are others which are simply surreal as if they were
taken from the pages of a fairy tale storybook.
Should you be interested in the pursuit of making use of HDR yourself
and are interested in some online tutorials then a simple search
on Google, Yahoo or MSN Live should bring up a rather nice selection
of results. Of course yours truly has a few pages which I've learned
a thing or two from. Here's a sampling of what I'm talking about:
More to come....
