There can be several reasons why some people are not impressed with HDR. However, I'd say that most people, myself included, have
been very impressed with most
of the HDR content they have seen so far (not all HDR content is created equal).
But to answer your 2nd question...
Start by reading >THIS POST
< from my "What is Color Volume
The article I quote was written by professional colorist Alexis Van Hurkman
. Alexis is also a director
. His works include the industry-standard "Color Correction Handbook: Professional Techniques for Video and Cinema"
and its companion "Color Correction Look Book"
as well as the "Encyclopedia of Color Correction"
Additionally, in the HDR section
of Part 1 of my "What is Color Volume
" article, which is the >FIRST POST
< in that thread, I also have another quote by another professional colorist by the name of "Stephen Nakamura".
a colorist with "Company 3" in LA, who has worked with really high profile directors and cinematographers and knows more about HDR than most people. He has graded in HDR movies like Exodus: Gods and Kings
(the first ever movie to be HDR graded); Tomorrowland
(Disney’s first HDR grade and a movie made for the format); The Martian
; and Joy
I hope those posts help clarify things for you.
