Inside The Gary Post Office

In addition to my big bot camera the Sony a7 II I was also shooting this past weekend with the iPhone using my favorite app Hipstamatic.  This app lets you configure the camera for certain styles and then applies them to shot you take.  I love it and the next three images were made using this app and doing double exposures.  One particular selection in the app called Salvator actually does the double exposure thing when the camera is shot,  Hope you enjoy these three images.

Double Exposure

Pipe Organ Double Exposure, Iceland

Pipe Organ Double Exposure, Iceland

I published a church photo from Icelanda few days ago.  This is a shot I made inside the church.  Using the double exposure feature in the Hipstamatic program I played around with doing double exposures.  I’d shoot one and then look at the subject and tried to envision how it would look on top of the image previously shot.  I did a number of images of the pipe organ and keyboard of the organ.  This is one of the shots.  Made with the iPhone.

New Orleans Cemetery

Grave In New Orleans

Grave In New Orleans

Another thing about New Orleans is the city has some amazing cemeteries.  It’s funny in a way that in my travels I have photographed cemeteries in many countries.  Buenos Aires, Argentina and Punta Arena, Chile have two of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever visited.  New Orleans certainly has its share of interesting cemeteries.  This is a close up I found on one of the graves.  I have hundreds of images I made there.  Maybe I’ll show more over time.  Shot with an iPhone.

New Orleans Stairs

Stairs New Orleans Library

Stairs New Orleans Library

In April of 2016 I’ll be hosting workshop in New Orleans.  New Orleans is one of the most interesting US cities with quite an interesting history.  There are so many things to photograph in New Orleans.  The streets are full of interesting people. There are impromptu parades and some very interesting architecture.  This image was made in the stairway of one of the older libraries in New Orleans.  I like the light playing on the walls and color cast.  You always have to be looking for these type of photo opportunities.  Shot with an iPhone.

Church In Iceland

Church In Iceland

I have visited this unique church in Iceland many times.  On my recent trip I visited it again and decided to shoot it with the iPhone and Hipstamaticapp.  Iceland has some beautiful churches.  Most are small and quaint but a few are really cool the way they are designed.  This is one of them.

Round Tower In Copenhagen

The Round Tower, Copenhagen, Denmark

The Round Tower, Copenhagen, Denmark

I was in Copenhagen about a month ago to see a new camera launch.  While there I played tourist and walked the city.  I visited many of my favorite locations.  The Round Tower is one of those places.  This tower was apparently built by some king hundreds of years ago so he could drive his carriage up the tower and look out on the city.  I guess he was too lazy to climb stairs.  The wide roadway in the tower as well as the light spilling in the windows makes this a great place to find an interesting image.  This was an iPhone shot.

Sometimes I Have Other Fun

Kevin RAber - New Tool (toy)

Kevin RAber – New Tool (toy)

Ok, it’s no secret I have a real joy for taking photographs and spend just about all my waking days working on something related to my passion.  The Luminous-Landscape web site keeps me busy, working on future workshops takes time and writing takes times.  So, once in a while I need to go out and do something to relax.  There is nothing like Power Washing to satisfy that need and release my tensions.  This is a shot of me with my newest man tool – power washer.
