A couple of weeks ago I took a workshop with master photographer, Howard Austin Feld. Howard has been a fixture around South Florida for a very long time. He has developed a revolutionary technique in digital imagary that has dazzled the photography, computer and art worlds. He calls his technique “pixel impressionism.” He was kind enough to share his technique with the class .
We had 3 days of shooting and one day on the computer working on the shots we had taken. It was great experience because I had the opportunity to visit new photo-sites that I had never thought of to photograph and introduced to some fantastic models as well.
The best part of the class for me was learning to use a new program that synthesizes HDR. HDR (High Dynamic Range Imaging) is a set of methods used in image processing, computer graphics, and photography, to allow a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging methods or photographic methods could produce. It has endless possibilities, and the results, in my estimation, are painterly and surreal.
I have just posted some of the pictures that I completed on my website http://www.mitchellblochphotography.com/hdr Please take a look and let me know what you think.
