Everybody loves photography, unless they secretly believe that every photo taken of them steals a tiny bit of their soul, and all these images must be destroyed, burned before it is too late!
Ahem, we got a bit carried away there.
We do love photography here at Newsstand, and a magazine like Popular Photography is therefore a welcome find. We have two particular favourite photographical tricks and techniques that we would love to see more of. Firstly, HDR or High Dynamic Range photography, a technique that captures a far wider range of colours than we can with our own eyes, and produces shots with an absolutely astonishing level of depth – frankly we rather wish the actual world looked this good.
Secondly, and perhaps best, is tilt-shift photography. This has seen much popular use since its upsurge in popularity a few years ago, and consists of altering the focus across certain bands of the image to be captured using a special lens. What this results in is photos that show the real world but in a focus that makes it appear minimised – though we might see real people, buses, cars and buildings and so on, somehow we perceive them as tiny. This is to our simple minds a hugely amusing and fascinating technique, and one we would love to see more of. nb
