Travel Photography…

The HDR process…

HDR the future of photography with saturated colours and a true reflection of how our eyes see the world. At last a process that can copy what we are viewing and want to record and not rely on the camera to under or over expose images to see the final required result…

The conservative view, the traditionalist of photography, will say that this style is over done, its not real, its unnatural, but stop and think for a moment how many times have you taken a photograph and viewing it later realised that the scene was not exactly how you saw it? Those views can become reality now…

Use HDR. It will open your eyes….

To be judged or not!

Hi

I hope you get a chance to reply to this blog as Im interested to know how any of you feel about photo club judges , what are your experiences good or bad…

I ask this as I am a program secretary for my local photo club and have read recently of how photo judges have been pretty poor not only in their technical comment of an image but their technical knowldege of photo taking or editing. How for instance can a judge say that a print has got alot of grain in the print when the photographer used velvia 50 film and darkroom processed the print himself?

I haven’t to date had any problems with judges some are harsh others a little lenient, but I’m concerned for the future. As we have a shortfall of judges are we coming to a point that those chosen as judges simply haven’t got the experience or knowledge to do decent job.
