NIKON D40X (200mm, f/7.1, 1/125 sec, ISO100) Trey Ratcliff is one of the world most known HDR prhotographer, and his site “Stuck in Customs” is very famous and appreciated. I have done this urban image with the idea of doing it in a similar way like he could have done it (maybe? Only Trey could tell!).
NIKON D40X (18mm, f/7.1, 1.3 sec, ISO100) This is a very classical style picture, very didactic (also known as a “postcard picture”) of the Castle of Rivoli. It’s style was inspired by the wonderful HDR images by Trey Ratcliff blog Stuckincustoms.com. Walking around the castle, I found what was looking to me as a good place and a good light to shoot a picture like the Trey ones.
I‘ve born in 1961 close to Turin, and started with photography in the secondary school (with b/w and the darkroom in my house bath). My profession regards computers (I’m lucky enough to have a job I like much).
With my images I try to communicate the emotion and feelings I’ve felt when I took them. To attempt reaching this objective, I use any technique I believe could help in transmitting these feelings to who’s looking at my pictures. Of course this is very hard to obtain, also because I think that anyone of us has a personal vision about the surrounding world, as well as an image I feel interesting could not arouse in others the same impression which gave to me.
For this reason the comments are very welcome, and will be kept in great consideration. I would thank you for any comment, positive or negative: I will appreciate them a lot.
Equipment: Most important: mindset, then the hardware: Nikon, with very few exceptions. A tripod, a couple of filters (polarizer and ND). Usually I post-process the images with Gimp and Photomatix Pro
My favicon: Just in case you are squeezing your eyes trying to decipher what it is, here you can see it enlarged. The basic idea is quite simple: over that the overlapping MB characters (which I’ve used from long time), I’ve used as background the typical scheme of the Bayer mosaic sensor used in most of the digital cameras, where 50% of the pixels are sensible to the green, 25% to the red and 25% to the blue. That’s all folks!
