Costa del Sol

What is the dynamic range in photography?

The dynamic range in photography may refer to two concepts: firstly, the range of tones in the scene to be portrayed; and secondly, the capacity of the sensor to capture these tones. Today we'll be focussing on the first.

What is the dynamic range? The dynamic range is the number of different tones in a scene. If the brightness of the lightest and darkness areas differs greatly, the dynamic range is considered high.

Importance of the dynamic range in the real-estate sector.

For luxuryreal-estate agents, taking appealing photos of their properties is vital, which is why capturing the entire dynamic range of a scene.when photographing properties. The Costa del Sol has a very special light, making its landscapes particularly stunning; however, capturing this light with your camera is no mean feat. Sometimes, the skies above Marbella are too light compared to the building being photographed and we're left with a scenario in which either clouds are very bright or the property is very dark. This exposure difference can be offset using a neutral density filter. When taking photographs, it is important to bear in mind that, generally speaking, it is best to avoid midday, when the sun is at its brightest, preferably opting for evenings.

From Melvin Villarroel to Carlos Lamas

Nobody is in any doubt that the Costa del Sol is one of our country’s main tourism hotspots. In this entire area, there is one particular town that has become a focus of high end tourism: Marbella.

Marbella is one of few places in the world where you can buy a luxury residence designed by renowned architect Carlos Lamas. Works by Lamas, one of the main architects working on the Costa del Sol, are modern designs combining rectangular structures with a cutting edge style, making him the winner of the European Property Awards 2016-2017.

Just think that this area was also one of the main stamping grounds of Melvin Villarroel, among the most important architects of the 20th century, who designed numerous hotels and buildings in Marbella. His more tribal and personal style was a mix of different architectural traits seen on the Iberian peninsula, as well as some associated more with South America.

Among more modern designs can also be found work by ARK itectos Sotogrande. Several works in a vanguard style are currently on offer in Marbella, in a predominant white colour, allowing light to penetrate the interior and combine with the ambience.
