HDR Photography – Vintage Cars Gallery

In 1940th Life magazine’s cover featured nuclear explosion photographic picture, made by Charles Wyckoff. That was the first example of high dynamic range imaging; and the popularity of this photographic technique continues to grow gradually these days thanks to the incredible artistic effects of the HDR images. Cruzine has prepared this showcase of vintage cars HDR images to get you familiar with this specific trend of modern photography art, stemming from the ideas and experiments of the greatest photographers of the 20th century.

By general definition, HDR or high dynamic range imaging refers to a specific photography technique, which allows a photographer to achieve greater dynamic ranges of luminance between the darkest and the lightest parts on the photograph in comparison to a standard dynamic range. HDR imaging is a step forward to developing absolutely new imaging techniques, that will better comply with the physical abilities of human sight (human eyes can, actually, perceive the surrounding world’s objects in a huge dynamic range, which still remains unreachable for modern imaging devices and media). That is why, HDR photography is sometimes said to be “scene-referred” in comparison to “device-referred” traditional digital photography.

The following gallery of HDR photographs feature vintage automobiles. This presentation gives you a chance not only to see a high visual contrast on the photographs, but also feel that great conceptual contrast, dividing older cars from today’s modern vehicles. So, let’s move now from the theory to the showcase itself. Take your time and enjoy the HDR imaging!
