About this book

Language: French

A second book from Philippe Martin with his hyperrealistic photography. These realistic, "quasi 3D" images are composite images, painstakingly created by merging dozens of shots. The author's work magnifies subjects, animals or plants, from our immediate environment, providing the reader with a new understanding of the most common species . Another achievement has been to make these pictures in nature with living, and as such, moving subjects, and not in the studio. This popular and didactic book explains from A to Z the process of realizing this innovative technique for future enthusiasts .

The images of Philippe Martin were awarded at the International Festival of wildlife photography of Montier-en-Der 2012: 1st prize in the category "Image numérique".

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage Hyper Nature – Version prestige augmentée révolutionne la photographie naturaliste traditionnelle. En détournant de son usage initial un logiciel créant des images composites, il nous montre une nature presque vivante. Que l’on s’attend à voir surgir de la page. Ces images d’un réalisme saisissant (en "quasi 3D"), dont chacune fait l’objet de longues heures de correction, ne sont pas des photographies, mais bien des « images composites » issues de la fusion de dizaines de clichés.

Le travail de l'auteur magnifie les sujets, animaux ou végétaux, de notre environnement proche, offrant au lecteur une nouvelle perception des espèces les plus banales. L'autre prouesse a été de réaliser ces clichés en pleine nature avec des sujets vivants donc mobiles et non pas en studio. Le livre très grand public et didactique explique de A à Z, tout le processus de réalisation de cette technique novatrice aux futurs amateurs.

Les images de Philippe Martin ont été primées lors du Festival international de la photographie animalière de Montier-en-Der 2012 : 1er prix de la catégorie "Image numérique".
