OK, I know what size a piece of A4 paper is...but what about all the other 'A' sizes ?
Easy, just see our 'A' Series Paper Info
How is 'HDR' photography different and where can I learn more ?
Put simply, an HDR image requires multiple shots to be taken of
the same scene at differing exposures...usually 5-7 exposure 'stops' difference.
These shots are then combined to output a single image which captures the massive range of shadows, mid-tones and highlights; something which is impossible to capture in a single shot.
This image looks complete rubbish. Until the magic starts.
Using a 'tone mapper', it can then be manipulated to lend a virtually infinite range of 'ambience' to the scene. These images can be printed at large scale in incredible, faithful detail.
HDR photography has its converts and detractors in equal measure.
Yes, there are many bad examples created by some playing with all the 'sliders'.
Without self-restraint and skill, the result becomes an over-exposed, over-saturated,
pixelated er, mess. The outcome really does come down to artistry.
There's a lot of work involved but get it right and the result is just that. Art
