Trey Ratcliff!

Hey everyone! Its been awhile since I’ve done a post on a specific artist so I figured why not do one now! I recently discovered a photographer named Trey Ratcliff and I really love his photographs. He does something a little bit different when it comes to his photos, he uses HDR photography. So what is HDR photography you ask? Well I’m not going to get into too much detail here since he does a great job of describing it himself but I’ll give you the basics. HDR stands for  High Dynamic Range which means you take several photos of the same subject and combine them to create one beautiful image. Each image is taken with a different shutter speed so you end up with three photos. One bright, one medium and one dark (which means each has a different lighting). I’m going to put a couple of links to all of his info down below because he really does provide a lot of great tips and tutorials!

I came across these and I love the depth to his photos and the mood they give off. I don’t know about you guys but I’m definitely attracted to certain styles of art in different ways. There is art that I really admire and think is beautiful but I just have more of admiration for it and that’s as far as it goes. Then there are other works of art that I want to replicate and stylistically bring into my own artwork. This is one of the later, I’ve always really loved landscapes and enjoy photographing nature over other objects. That being said some of my best photos, in my opinion, are ones that I’ve taken in a studio so you can analyze that since it makes no sense to me. Anyway, below are some of my favorites but I will have many links to find out more about Trey below! Until next time!

All Around the World

Hey everyone! I have to admit I almost forgot to make a post this week!  >_< Which is kind of weird because I’ve been doing this for awhile now but anyway I have some amazing photos to share with you this week! I came across these photos and they really inspired me to keep working with my photography skills, and maybe travel sometime soon! I came across a photographer that has taken some amazing photos while in his native Berlin, Germany and on his travels to various other places. His name is Lukas Kozmus and I am very envious of him for several reasons. His photographs are really beautiful and very rich in color.lukas-1

Also I love silhouette photography (I made that term up, I think) so these photos are right up my alley in that respect. Although I love me some silhouettes I have to admit my favorite photo is not one with a silhouette. I really love the photo that was taken with the children play in the rain in the street. I like the golden warmth to the picture and how the rain drops look like gold. My second favorite is the shot of the biker on the road, once again I love the warm lighting, it just seems to add some kind of a mystical feeling to the photos.

I thought all of his photos are really beautiful and they really inspired me to keep at my own photography. Sometimes I get discouraged but I can tell that my photos are getting better and its really a matter of just getting out there and shooting some photos. I’d love travel and take these kinds of photos but I think the more I practice I’ll get there, in the mean time I’ll keep sharing things that inspire me with you guys! Thanks for reading! I’ll put some links down below in case you want to check out more!
