Impressive Portrait Photography by Luca Pierro

The first time I saw Luca Pierro's photos I found they were at least 70% photoshoped, but they were not. This photographer try to reach the effects, textures and lights with the less manipulation as possible, so he uses a lot of materials like fluor, milk, water and other. The results are pretty magnific, I must admit they speak by themselves. If you want to see more photographies from Luca, please access his Website or Flickr. Taking inspiration from painting and the surrealism in particular, Luca tries to recreate in his portraits ethereal surrealistic atmospheres. Digital processing is minimized. The lightning and the use of various natural materials (water, flour, talcum powder, sugar, etc.) become predominant (Luca's Flickr).

Experiment: HDR Photography

As you can probably tell the crew here at Abduzeedo are just fascinated by HDR Photography. There is something cool about HDR that i can't really explain. Maybe it's the colors or detail. Whatever it is, HDR is just plain awesome. So yesterday I was shooting for a' La Mode (a photography group I am in) and I spotted this location that I thought would be perfect for HDR. I have never shot HDR but read Fabio's How to create HDR Photos - HDR/Photomatix tutorial, so I thought I'd give it a try. This also happened to be my first time using a digital slr, I normally use a film camera. In the words of Fabio, "it's like the light is coming from heaven"
