"Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero who travelled far and wide. . . Many cities did he visit, and many were the nations with whose manners and customs he was acquainted; moreover he suffered much by sea while trying to save his own life and bring his men safely home;" --Homer's Odyssey
"Beauty will save the world." --Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Printed on Fuji-crystal archival paper and front-mounted to plexiglass / acryllic. The Nikon D810 captures the light with seven shots at 1 EV, the HDR process bends the light, and the fuji-crystal print front-mounted to plexiglass liberates the light! Especially when illuminated by upscale LED spot- lighting!
The fine art was shot with the nikon D810 and Nikon D800E!
And I am mounting some on plexiglass/acryllic--front mounting them! Some I am printing on lossy fuji-crystal archival paper too, and then front mounting 40"x60" versions to plexiglass--will send photos!
The secret to HDR photography is that you want people to say, "Woe dude--that's unreal!" And not, "Dude--that's not real!" "Unreal" is the word they use when they're trying to figure out the photo--what makes it cool--is it a photo? Is it painted? How'd it come to be--how'd you bend the light that way? "That's not real," is what they say if you have the saturation/HDR/ etc. turned up too high. :)
Some (almost) final edits for December's Los Angeles Gallery Show! Printing them on metallic paper at 13" x 19" and mounting and framing them on a 4mm 18x24 white mat and 2" dark wood frame. Also printing some 40" x 70" whihc is over three feet by five feet! Wish you all could come (and hang out with the goddesses)!
Let me know your favs.!
