The first HDR pioneer: Ansel Adams…

Ansel Adams had us all beat on making photographs of objects appear better than they do in real life. A beautiful piece with multimedia gallery in today’s NYT on him. Especially love the image of him shooting from the roof his station wagon.

  3. This isn’t Adams work.
    It isn’t even a photograph for that matter.

    This caught my eye as, throughout my studies, I’ve never come across anyone pulling off HDR on film, even Ansel Adams.
    HDR is a digital process requiring pixel blending modes and tonal identfication.

    Then, looking closer, I noticed it’s even more suspiciously fake.
    I’ve done the odd bit of work in the 3D CGI sector and this is clearly done in a CGI program.
    Probably Vue D’Esprit or Terragen judging by the composition of the ground.
