The photographs in Monochromatic Visions were created using high-dynamic range (HDR) techniques that will be explained in Harold Davis’s forthcoming book Monochromatic HDR Photography from Focal Press. This process involves sequential multiple digital RAW exposures, or a single RAW exposure processed multiple times. The blended exposures or processes are then rendered into a single color master file. The final color version of the image is then remastered to monochrome, using innovative layering and processing techniques invented by Harold Davis.

About Harold Davis

Harold Davis is a widely recognized master artist, and a leading contemporary photographer. His work is commissioned, collected and exhibited widely.

Harold Davis has been acknowledged as a Moab Master for his printmaking prowess. His work demonstrates that advances in the technology and craft of digital photography have created an entirely new medium that begins with photography and continues as digital art. This extraordinary imagery builds on the masterworks of the past while embracing revolutionary innovations in photography.

Botanical prints by Harold Davis are particularly sought after. As Popular Photography Magazine noted, “Harold Davis’s ethereal floral arrangements have a purity and translucence that borders on the spiritual.”

In this regard, it is worth pointing to Botanique, the limited edition artist book of Harold Davis botanical art that originated as a successful Kickstarter project. Here’s what some collectors of Botanique have said about Botanique:

  • “I didn’t open it until last night because I was really busy and wanted to take time to savor every page.  It’s BEAUTIFUL!  Thank you very much.”—S.M.
  • “I had time today to sit down and slowly admire each and every page of your amazing book. It is absolutely gorgeous…a true collector’s item…and is a reflection of the beauty and light within you both. I’m honored to be one of the people who has the privilege to own this book and will treasure it always.”—B.A.
  •  ”Arrived home from France this evening to find my copy of Botanique waiting for me . . . the book and accompanying prints are indescribably beautiful.”—B.G.
  • “All I can say is WOW. What a magnificent piece of work this is.  It seems that each time I turn the pages I find something different and unique to look at in each of the flowers.What a masterpiece.  My words cannot do it justice.I am proud to own this exquisite artwork.”—I.H.
  • “That would have to be the most beautiful floral photography I’ve seen!”

We believe that Monochromatic Visions may well be as highly sought after as Botanique, with at least comparable increase in price following the conclusion of the Monochromatic Visions Kickstarter campaign.
