the beauty of details

When I look at Louis Trocciola’s photos, I get a feeling I seldom get when looking at photos.

I feel like I’m there.

I’m there, walking by the fortune teller. I’m the one stopping in front of the pina colada shop, getting a free refill.

I guess it is the details that make the difference. All the details. I like details, and I like these photos.

Trocciola uses the technique High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging, and that’s probably why all the details are so clear. Trocciola himself explains the technique like this:

For those who may be new to HDR imaging, it is a technique that combines different exposures of the same scene resulting in a blended image that is optimally exposed in both the shadow and highlight areas. The final image should be a truer representation of what our eyes see when we look at a scene.

I have no idea how to take photos like this, but I guess you need a tripod. Unfortunately, my tripod is back in Norway. And right now I can’t wait to get home to try this out.

In the meantime, I will let me inspire by Louis Trocciola.

Do you get inspired?
