For those who are interested in the HDR side of things, I’ve got a new blog for you. As most of you know, www.filmicgames.com is my personal site. And I’ve finally put together a blog for 19lights, the company I’ve started. If you’re into all things HDR, you should check out the blog at blog.19lights.com.
The latest post is Top 5 Optical Illusions for HDR Photographers. I’ve found that when trying to explain the concept of HDR Photography to people that I keep re-explaining the Adelson Checkerboard illusion over and over and over. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat at someone’s laptop, opened Windows Paint and started drawing rectangles to explain it (like in my GDC talk). Actually, the entire point of the filmicgames website was to stop explaining things to people–I wanted one place to say my piece about arguments that I would have over and over (like linear-space lighting). So I’ve finally put my explanation for the Adelson Checkboard online (as well as a few other important illusions) and, if I’m really lucky, I can stop using Windows Paint. Although who are we kidding, I’ll always use Windows Paint.
As far as this blog, I’m going to keep posting here on occasion, but obviously the 19lights blog is a higher priority. Happy HDR!
