04/19/12 87 W, 1 I - + 7 - 4 Curious Fire Photo From Rocky Mount

For your morning reading, here's a curious fire photo from the Rocky Mount Telegram, what looks like an HDR image by Bob Bartosz, after a small fire Monday night at a home improvement store. There's been a debate about HDR and its use in photojournalism. Here's one report, from Digital Photography Review. What do you think about HDR or heavier digital processing in general? Anyway, read the story and see a larger version, plus a second shot.

Bob Bartosz photo

I like the pictures. Also, Bob Bartosz is an outstanding asset to our area, just google the guys name to see all the work he did while living in Camden, NJ. He is at just about every major event in our and the morning after he’s at every fire department that responded dropping off a disc full of pictures. We are very fortunate to have him in our area as Raleigh/Wake is fortunate to have you.

Bob is indeed the man. And he has shot some serious fire in his lifetime!

Born and bred in Rocky Mount, and a stint in both Fire and EMS and even though I had the good sense to flee the crime riddled area over 40yrs. Ago I read the telegram daily. Bob Bartoz does a great job but I am off course partial to Mike and Lee.I ain,t got no ideas what HDR photography is but in the telegram photo section on page 6 there is a photo tribute To RMFD by Bob. These photos are done somehow to make them near bout cartoonish and the whole set of photos is very different and very interesting. Whatever the process is may not be that suitable for fire scene photos, but they sure look cool in this tribute. Mike if you get chance to look at them maybe you can Explain what type of photography they are.
