I’ve been a big fan of Trey Ratcliff’s photography since last summer. The type of photos he does are called HDR. I’ve played with HDR a bit myself, but I’m limited by my equipment (no DSLR, just a Panasonic that will take three bracketed shots that sort of work)… and my skills, of course. Some people hate HDR, because it requires so much post-processing, but I’ve always loved colors and lights, and HDR seems more real to me than traditional photography in some ways.
What’s cool about Trey is that he’s been taking photographs for less than a year. He travels the world for work and has photographed places most of us will never see, all over Asia, and even Iceland and Chernobyl. I love his urban photos and I’ve been hoping he’d get to NYC. This past week, he did, and the result here doesn’t disappoint!
