Deep Thoughts About the Construct of Time and Gender With Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne est l’égérie de la toute nouvelle campagne TAG Heuer. Face à un lion, elle ose prendre des risques et donne ainsi un nouveau souffle au motto “Don’t Crack Under Pressure”.
Raise your hand if you have a massive, can’t-stop-won’t-stop crush on Cara Delevingne.
Now put your hand down, because you’ll need it to scroll through this story. We met up with the actress / musician / model / style obsession this week in Manhattan, just after she debuted her mega billboard for the Tag Heuer campaign in Times Square. It stars a lion, a watch, and a wardrobe of Saint Laurent + Dior, and yes, there’s some magic involved.
Get ready to do a Delevingne deep dive, ahead.

Yes! This book is about High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography. And you are going to love the extraordinary results of HDR techniques. But keep in mind that photography is photography—no matter what you call your approach or delivery. That’s why this book begins with tips that will not only help your HDR techniques; they will improve all of your photography. So you will not find any HDR tech talk in this Preface. You’ll fnd it in the other chapters; but for now, let’s focus on the basics of photography. To illustrate my tips, I use some of my favorite pictures of vintage cars (and one truck) that I shot during my travels. You’ll learn how to create similar HDR images in this book, so stay with me here.

Photography has never been in a better place than it is right now. As the primary medium for ‘instant’ communicaton, it is now accessible to all. The alchemy that we used to enjoy: with the mysteries of film and exposure, the darkened rooms and chemicals, have all but been transcended by a small device that fits in your pocket and can send images anywhere in an instant. The digital revolution has enabled photographers and clients to push visual boundaries and enhance concepts, simply due to the power of instant review.
I love new tech. I’m always looking at it, buying it and playing with it.
Advances in digital manipulaton and capture are bound to make a difference to what we see today. More access for less able photographers and unskilled operators has been the trend lately, and that will only continue. A general dumbing down and consensus ‘look’ is what I see, especially in the fashion and celebrity world. But like any trend, there is a point when it will feel worn out and unable to go any further.
