35mm film and second hand cameras
Is it just me or does it look bloody awful?
Most of the time people made them look awful.
I think it all depends on the subject and how the HDR image was processed.
If it looks like HDR then it’s probably badly done. The only good one I saw didn’t look like HDR it just seemed to be a very well lit scene.
Ah, well that’s down to good processing and the subjectivity of art 🙂
Oh goodness no. It’s hideous. In the hands of a talented, capable editor, it’s halfway digestible. But I’m with you- I’m HDR’d out- especially when it’s over-clarified, chalky and has that same “puffy” aesthetic appeal as a dead body floating down the Hudson.
I really hope it dies down fairly soon.
It will go out of fashion but then what will it be replaced with?
I’m afraid to ask!
No, it’s not just you.. I find HDR to resemble a bad hangover.. (No offense meant for those that practice it)
Even the HDR that is supposed to be done well generally looks awful to me. Exposure blending can be more effective. Right now I’m a little down on modern digital photography – it’s more like CGI.
I’ve got this idea in my head that you can improve a shot by 10% using digital means. You still need a good image to work with.
