Scientists and Photography

Sean McHugh is a chemical engineer from Cambridge University (UK) and very knowledgeable about the intricacies of digital image making. He has written many tutorials on everything from colour perception to high dynamic range post processing of images.

"As a scientist by training, I am fascinated by the interaction between technological developments and the range of creative options available to photographers. Improvements in sensitivity, ex post facto white balance control and real-time feedback from digital imaging are providing photographers with unprecedented low-light capabilities. Much of this fascination has been channelled into finding unique times, perspectives and techniques for capturing many of these low-light scenes in Cambridge."
