I have been re-working some of my images using the update Capture One software 7.. I basically take images I worked on previously and run them back through the processor and they now come out even better. This is one of those images. It was shot on an IQ180 in New Zealand last December. I love the greens and details I was able to pull out of this shot. This was magical location.
About two years ago visited Olympic National Park for a week of photography with some very close friends. It was great week with a lot on nice images. This picture is indicative of the week. Lots of waterfalls and lots of green.
This image was made in December 2012 showing one of my favorite places on the planet, Erarnslaw Burn, New Zealand. Very hard area to reach so it’s not visited by many. Very magical as there are hundreds of waterfalls pouring off glaciers thousands of feet in the air. Just to be present there is an incredible feeling.
One of the major attraction in Iceland is Gullfoss which is a large really cool waterfall. Typically when I travel and photograph in Iceland I like to go where others don’t go or at least try to see the place and image differently. well Gullfoos is no different. Buses of tourist show up here and most of the time we avoid this place like the plague. But, we had sometime and decided to at least stop and admire this cool place. I decided to try and shoot it differently . I used my Olympus OMD5 and did a series of bracketed exposures and then worked them in post processing. I ended up with a different kind of prehistoric gritty look. Works for me.
We moved a bit further North this afternoon and spent sunset at a frozen Waterfall. This was shot with a Phase ONe IQ260 and made from 4 images through a 240mm lens. I am trying to do long lens shots to see Iceland differently when I can.
I am off to 10 days of shooting in Iceland in the winter. Yes there is ice in Iceland. Our first stop was a set of waterfalls that just come out of the earth. Very beautiful and quite long. I have a few keepers from this stop and shoot but this is one of my favorites. On a trip like this I’ll take thousands of images. So, I’ll do quick edits while in Iceland and on the trip and I’ll try to post everyday if I have good internet. So, keep checking back. I believe this is the Hraunfossar falls.
I am heading off to Iceland for my fourth trip tomorrow. This is one of my favorite places to photograph. As a fine art landscape photographer I know of no place that offers such stunning beauty no mater what season it is. This trip will be nice as it is the first one where I won’t be going in summer months. It will be cold, maybe snowy and best of all there will be darkness. In June and during the summer there is 24 hours of light. This also means I’ll be able to shoot the northern lights with the NEW Phase One IQ260 camera. So stay tuned. I”ll update the blog as often as internet connections allow. This shot is from one of the many waterfalls that I converted to B&W. After the many trips I have made there I try to make things look different.
This is a location I have photographed many times in Iceland. On each visit I shoot at this wonderful place. It’s right by the road and has an easy pull off. I shoot with different lenses and from different angles. Combine this with different light and every time I leave this great place I walk away with a great image. Here is one version from a year ago. I’ll be visiting Iceland again in a few weeks and I am sure going to shoot here again.
If you have ever visited Iceland you know there are a lot of waterfalls. I like to make things look a bit different so I shot this waterfall in a way where you can’t see the top of bottom and what you get is nice water and great rock texture. I like this shot and the way it works.’
How do you describe what it is like to be a photographer in Scotland. It’s an amazing place and almost every time you turn your head you find a scene worth photographing. Being there this past fall we had great color and great light as can be seen in this stunning shot. This is one of the classic places to shoot in Scotland. Water, cold and a mountain.
It’s Saturday and I usually spend a bit of time working on old images, sorting, cataloging etc.. Today I stumbled on this shot and then looked at some of the other images for this shoot. This was made on a New Zealand PODAS photography workshop I lead lead year. I am doing another this December CLCK HERE for info on it. One of the places we visit is Ernslaw Burn and it is only accessible by helicopter. It is truly one of those edge of the planes places. This is a shot of my ALPA with an IQ180 back set up on it about to shoot this massive area. I think we counted a total of 90 plus waterfalls coming off of glaciers a thousand feet high. You should put it on your bucket list, better yet come with me this December
It feels so good to be shooting and especially when you are in the woods outdoors and stumble upon a shot like this. This was at Rickets Glen in Pennsylvania. Lots of waterfalls there. This shot was taken through the trees (obviously). I wanted to combine the fall colors with the waterfall equally. I really love the feel of this image and how it is simple and pleasing to look at. Shot with a P65+
