In a 2012 interview with the artist, Ka Xiaoxi, at the beginning of his commercial career, he explains: I was inspired by Terry Richardson at the beginning. I loved his photos so much at the time. Now, I like others such as Helmut Newton, Jurgen Teller, Ryan McGinley, Hasisi Park, Tim Barber, etc. My style's very casual now, with some certain "Ka" style ...


He using : a ton of local adaptive contrast enhancement an extreme amount of curving extra amount of sharpening. Some news people on certain drugs started this effect (their eyes get sensitive to light from the drugs, so work on lower-light monitors, and actually they see this as a normal image when postprocessing). It is "captivating" because of the ...


The contrast is way too high. It seems he is good at avoiding the dark shadow by using angles and positioning, perhaps fixes the distqnce falloff in post, but leaves the contrast way up. Then again, the washed-out mid-tones but dark black cases in one photo doesn't seem like a simple flash. Why captivating? Maybe it's evocative of "deer in the headlights", ...

HDRI vs HDR for TV The short answer is that the terms are substantively different in meaning, both technically and subjectively. However, HDR for TV is certainly not just a marketing term, and I can't think of a more appropriate term for what HDR capable TVs are offering. Background I began working with high dynamic range imagery for feature film ...


The answer by James Snell is pretty severely incorrect to say that photo and display HDR are unrelated. They both refer to the exact same thing: higher bit depth. When you create an HDR image, you use the multiple exposures to create a true HDR image that has a higher bit depth than a normal display can reproduce. Because of this limitation, you normally ...


HDR-TV is (yet) another standard of video transmission. The color gamut is wider (see rec 2020 vs rec 709) but so is the resolution. The standard is supposed to be backwards compatible which means you will only see the benefits of the wider gamut if you have a television that supports it, but if you don't you will still be able to view the stream in the ...


This is one of those many times when terms/acronyms get applied by different audiences to different things. You're referring to image compositing and tonemapping to exceed the standard sensor range as HDR. The electronics industry are using it to refer to the HDMI HDR specification which enables greater bit-depth - aside from the wording behind the acronym ...


*sniff* I smell a marketing tactic. So, let's start off with HDR: what is it? An HDR image is about increasing the dynamic contrast in a picture and therefore the number of stops. There are different ways of capturing this, but you can search the site for that. So we have our HDR image, now what do we do with it? We need some sort of medium to present it ...


The answer from Laya himself: "The el doesn't have any meaning. Haha. Just wanted to call it the el bokeh wall". Great mystery resolved :)


Canon's newly-developed Dual Pixel CMOS AF, a phase-detection autofocus technology on the camera's image sensor plane. Dual Pixel CMOS AF employs a revolutionary CMOS sensor on which all of the effective pixels are able to perform both still imaging and phase-detection AF simultaneously to achieve dramatically improved AF performance over other EOS cameras ...
