HDR @ Gallery 141B

If you have an interest in Buffalo and photography, you may want to stop into Gallery 141B this Saturday. Gallery owner, Jim ‘Cosmic’ Collins, will be hosting an opening aka throwing a party and featuring some pretty unique artwork. I stopped in to the gallery to check out some of the work, and while I was there I ran into Caroline Bronckers and her husband Edwin (who will also be showing) while she was setting up for the show. I asked Cosmic what sort of photographic technique she was using and he relayed the following to me:
“Caroline Bronckers has a big interest in Buffalo imagery, and she is one of the few artists who is experimenting with HDR photography (here). This is the first large professional presentation in Buffalo of High Dynamic Range photography, – the idea is for people to understand what HDR is, and how it can be used and shown. The value is that you’re getting definition in the foreground and the far background. You get both the lightest and darkest areas of imagery, which is lacking in normal photography. This is a further reach… a different potential that is really important. There is a dynamic to the colorization that uses a series of bracketing photographic exposures… the apertures change the exposure… and then they color map it. I wanted to feature High Dynamic range the first time that I saw it. I wanted to bring it into the gallery and put it on Buffalo’s map. This is really big nationally. It’s a huge movement that is just starting to appear in Buffalo. We’re trying to bring interesting shows to the gallery, and we’re having an all day party and reception this Saturday. It will be a great time to meet a number of artists who will be painting inside and outside… there might be as many as twelve artists at the gallery on that day.”
