ABOUT THE ARTIST

Most people are on the world, not in it—have no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them—undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate. Yet tug on anything at all and you'll find it connected to everything else in the universe. – John Muir

Robert Arrington is an emerging landscape and HDR photographer residing in Anchorage, Alaska. Robert’s unique artistic creations combine the mystical alchemy of digital photographic and High Dynamic Range (HDR) techniques with skillful digital painting causing many to ask, “Is it a painting or a photograph?” The answer is often “both.”

Robert’s philosophy is about Capturing The Magnificent Beauty Of Everyday Life. We live in a world that is fraught with suffering and stress and finding places of serenity is key to maintaining a healthy spiritual balance in life. We find serenity in the beauty in a forest wilderness, the majesty of a waterfall, the echo of the ancients in cathedrals of stone. Robert’s vision is to create places of serenity through his art, a sacred space where one may roam unfettered while escaping the clutter of life.

Robert Arrington uses a Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR camera with numerous SLR lenses and always shoots using RAW. Robert employs numerous digital fine art techniques that include the mastery of Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop and digital fine art painting techniques using Corel Painter with a Wacom Intuos Tablet.

WHAT IS HDR?

HDR or High Dynamic Range imaging refers to a set of photography techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminance between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods allow. This wide dynamic range allows HDR images to more accurately represent the range of intensity levels found in real scenes. Because the human eye has a much greater ability to see the complete dynamic range in a scene than a camera’s sensor, most photographic images taken from a single exposure are unable to capture the wide range of available light in a scene. With HDR imaging the camera is set on a tripod and multiple images are taken of the given scene, ranging from very dark to very light exposures. These images are then composited together and then meticulously painted in Photoshop using layer masks. The end result is a visually striking image that more accurately reflects the dynamic range of the human eye.
