Its use is far from universal, however, even among photographers comfortable with HDR imaging, because of three limiting factors: the inability to batch process multiple files from a shoot to create HDR images; the need to use a tripod while shooting to ensure absolute alignment of the original images; and the need to have no or at least minimal movement in the scene during captures. Several HDR software solutions have addressed some of these issues with reasonable success, but HDR Expose 3 from Unified Color is the first to solve all three successfully in a single product.

Previous versions of HDR Expose are renowned for their ability to create natural-looking HDR images with minimal artifacts and without the grungy HDR “look.” The third option is batch processing. Talking Pixels. How do you get that glossy, reflective look that is pretty popular now-a-days?

Habrá que empezar explicando qué es un bodegón.

Bodegones sin vino

Nada que ver con un lugar grande donde hay almacenado mucho vino. Se le llama "bodegón" a una composición de objetos inertes, lo que se conoce también en el argot artístico como "naturaleza muerta". Y, aunque cuando decimos "bodegón" se viene a la cabeza un botijo con unas frutas y un mantel de encaje de bolillos; tan bodegón es ese como una composición hecha con tres tijeras, un puñado de tornillos y dos sacapuntas rebosando virutas dentro de una caja de cartón. En definitiva, se trata de objetos, no necesariamente de origen natural, ni tampoco podridos -lo digo por lo de "naturaleza muerta"-.

Después de esta aclaración, se puede diferenciar entre un bodegón sin más, o una "fotografía de producto". 15 still life photography ideas.

John Child Studio Photography Essential Skills fourth ed by DavidOC. Kathy beal contemporary art. There is actually a lot of curiosity as to how my images are created, so I thought I’d share a bit about my process.

My images are not obscure photographs of some actual object and they aren’t a form of macro photography. They are the result of a method I’ve developed over time, that started with breaking my foremost rule of photography, F64, that all images needed to be tack sharp. I can still remember the joy and freedom I felt looking through the viewfinder with the lens thrown completely out of focus, and the aperture wide open. This is my starting point, my color pallet, and the seeds of my idea. The column of images to the left are the “befores”, the source. The column of images to the right represent the completed images - each one made directly from the starting point on the left. During post-processing, I twist, fold, warp, wrap and re-shape the source image. Profoto D1 Air vs Elinchrom BRX500 vs Photogenic monolights flash duration test.

When I got to our studio these 3 monolights, I kept thinking how to test them against each others. All of them are the same power, 500Ws, and while Elinchrom and Photogenic cost around $600 each, Profoto D1 Air is twice more expensive, $1200. Each light has a very similar controls and features. So, what exactly to test? We did not get any light modifiers with them, and without light modifiers there is not much to test: all flash units are well built, have easy to use controls and same power output.
