Mizutani’s HDR_nature series offers a fresh take on nature photography. Using the latest technology, he creates images which look like painted with brush strokes. Today everyone can take photographs and there are too many photographs of nature, making it extremely difficult to come up with something new with this well-trodden and familiar theme.
With HDR_nature, Mizutani ventured into a new frontier in photography. HDR, short for High Dynamic Range, is a post-processing task of taking a series of images, combining them and adjusting the contrast ratios to create images as close as possible to what the human eye sees. He deliberately moves his camera around to let it combine multiple out-of-focus images. As a result, he manages to create something we have never seen before. By adopting a technology of digital photography in a creative way, he added a new page to the history of photographic expression which has always gone hand-in-hand with the development of technology.
