"The Camera Can Lie"
|I spotted an article today which is extremely helpful in overcoming a big problem of digital photography - Limited Dynamic Range. (The camera's inability to record everything the human eye sees from very dark to very light.) |
The Limited Dynamic Range problem shows up in many ways, one of the most common being a shot which turns out as a dark subject against a bright background.
Here's what the photographer saw ...
Here's what the camera recorded ...
Unless you are proficient in the use of fill-in flash, graduated filters, image editor masking or HDR processing, (and have the time to use them) you are often left with a disappointing result.

The Northern Lights ...
|This month's selected image was taken by Keith Pointon, the Secretary of the Royal Photographic Society's Travel Group, when he visited Iceland last year. The various shots he obtained inspired so many of the group's members that another trip to see the Northern Lights has been arranged for them next January. |
Travel and photography have been an enduring part of Keith’s life since an early age. His first camera was a Christmas present when he was 12 years old and living in Malaya. He never looked back. He quickly learned to develop and print his own black and white prints and has always enjoyed the qualities of monochrome images.
A former teacher of Geography and Geology, it is not surprising, that landscapes and travel have been the backbone of his photography. Field trips and holidays to wide ranging places, Iceland, Antarctica, India, North Africa and the Mediterranean are a feature in his work.
