Chris Vanderlip. BA, Photography, 2006; BA, Spanish, 2008; BS, Geology (in progress). Grand Valley State University, Allendale/Grand Rapids MI. Email chrisvanderlip[[at]]yahoo[[dot]]com. Facebook: I consider myself essentially a photographic artist, landscapes and architecture being my primary modes. However, please note that my account images often reflect my other, non-fine-art, photographic interests such as geomorphological studies, and as such, may not represent the general public's expectation of fine-art. I began using an SLR in 1996 and developed my craft at Kalamazoo Valley Community College and Grand Valley State University, culminating in a bachelor's degree in photography in 2006. I started creating HDR (high-dynamic-range) images early in 2010 and currently use Photomatix software for image generation and post-process in Photoshop. I generally operate under a "realistic HDR" modus operandi, which is to say that I tone map for global contrast and use a curve-and-mask approach to create and control local contrast, avoiding halos and other phenomena which are distracting in many HDR images. While certain effects may be appropriate at times, I feel that mine is a more mature approach to creating HDR images, making photographs that are about their subject or atmosphere, rather than representing an image making process or effect.

En esta era de tanta información visual, hay pocas cosas que te impresionan visualmente hablando. Esta imagen me dejó en shock, entre la duda y la certeza, cuesta creer esta foto porque es algo que nunca había visto.
