HDR experiments, Jul 2009 -
This is the midtown Manhattan skyline, looking
south from the 35th-floor roof of my apartment building on 96th Street, just
before the sun dropped below the horizon over on the New Jersey side of the
Hudson River... ******************** I tried an HDR (high dynamic range) photo
once a year ago, but for some reason never pursued it. But it seems that more of
and more of the "interesting" photos that I see on Flickr are HDR shots, so I
decided to give it another try. These were all taken from the 35th-floor rooftop
of my apartment building at sunset, on the Sunday evening of 4th of July
weekend. I still have a lot to learn about this stuff, but even as a
first attempt I'm staggered by what the tonal-mapping software programs
(Photomatix, in my case) are capable of doing... ************************ Note:
This is one of 12 photos that I've culled from several thousand that I took in
2009, for possible presentation at a Jan 2010 class I'm taking at the
International Center of Photography (ICP), called "On Seeing What's Right In
Front of You." The photos already exist in various other Flickr sets -- often
just one or two out of a group of hundreds of related images -- and I've just
pulled them together for this occasion. In the spirit of the ICP class title,
all of these photos were taken "right in front" of where I live -- i.e., within
a hundred feet of my apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The photos
are organized as 6 separate pairs -- each pair illustrating a specific
situation, close to home, where I had a particular motivation or strategy for
taking photos. This particular photo illustrates the principles that apartment
buildings have roofs. You're up high, and you can walk around, and you typically
have great views in every direction. For some reason, I lived in apartment
buildings all over NYC for 40 years before I figured this out. I'm now
researching an additional theory implied by this first principle: even apartment
buildings that you don't live in have got roofs ... and there may be various
devious (and not-so-devious) ways of gaining access to those roofs, to take
really fantastic photos...
734 - Dino Floor Tile - Pattern
rocky ground texture mapped to floor tiles.
This real world technique is used in flooring material from Themed-Restaurants
all the way to Wal-Mart flooring. This seamless texture was illustrated by
Patrick Hoesly a Kansas city based illustrator specializing in architectural
illustrations and graphic design. What is a Seamless Texture / Pattern? A
seamless texture is an special image, where one side of a image exactly matches
the opposite side, so that the edges blend into each other when repeated.
Seamless textures are used for desktop wallpaper, webpage backgrounds, video
games, Photoshop fills and in 3D rendering programs. How did you make it?
This texture was made using software specially designed to aid in seamless
texture creation. Some of the programs I’ve use are Photoshop, Illustrator,
Filter Forge, Genetica, Image Synth, Alien Skin, Topaz Labs, Imagelys, and even
a pen and paper.
