Craig Sillitoe – Melbourne Professional Photographer

hdr20-600x400 My first experience of digital HDR was viewing photographs by Craig Sillitoe in the Sunday Age a couple of years ago.  http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/taking-it-to-the-streets-20110530-1fcea.html#ixzz1sBU02VVi

Before that I had known that Ansel Adams used a similar method – the zone system – with multiple negatives for his stunning photographs of the national parks of the Rocky Mountains.  A fair explanation of the zone system is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_k2iAgZfGs .

The Sunday Age images were quite garish – but gave a full set of colours to the night photos.  hdr12-600x400I’d been trying to do this for some time, with photographs of the night lights of the cityscape reflected in Corio Bay.

Having seen many more of Sillitoe’s photographs since then, I continue to be impressed by his ability to produce vibrant and dynamic images, whatever the brief.  His professional website is at http://www.csillitoe.com/ .
