We are pleased to announce that our new site for Fiorentin Studio is now live. This site redesign focuses heavily on the custom photographs with an interactive category navigation as well as an integrated photo gallery that allows the client to organize, title and upload his own work.
Dynamic range in photography is what stands behind the commercial term “contrast ratio” or the ratio between the brightest and the darkest parts of the image or a device for capturing or displaying images. For comparison, paper dynamic range equals to about 100:1 ratio, that of a plasma display is about 5000:1, and the dynamic range of a real-life environment can be estimated with the ration up to 100000:1. High dynamic range or HDR photography strives for reaching the contrast as close to reality as the most progressive technical means allow. That is why, HDR photographs always look very real to human eye, featuring high color depth, exceptional detailing, and almost perfect distinction between bright and dark parts of the image.
To show you the present achievements in HDR photography, Cruzine prepared this showcase with animals images. Nature is the most gifted and talented artist ever known on Earth. Variety of colors, shapes, and textures, created by Nature, still remains at an unbeatable record level for human artists. However, centuries of our evolution did help us to approach the highest standards, set by Nature. Today, HDR photography represents one of the most progressive imaging techniques. Looking at the HDR photos, such as those, collected below, creates the feeling of looking at the real-life objects and sceneries. Photography, perhaps, has never been so close to reality as it is now, thanks to such powerful techniques as HDR imaging. Cruzine welcomes all our readers to view this gallery of animals HDR images and enjoy the power of photography progress and evolution.
