It’s hard to believe the automobiles in Anthony Schmidt’s images are scale models, much less that the photos were created by a 12-year-old.
Schmidt, who is on the autism spectrum, began making photographs of toy cars when he was six, says mother Ramona Schmidt. “He’s always loved cars from a very early age.

The vehicles—which include specialized cars, trucks, motorcycles, and quad bikes—are currently on stage 9 of 10 stages that travel south to Tacna, then back to Lima on January 17.

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.
