A little fun with Antarctica images. With all the isolation that we are taking part in as a world, I have been playing a lot with images and third party programs. One program that has my interest right now is Skylum – Luminar. There are all sorts of cool things this program does and one of them si AI Sky Replacement. So, I decided to try and put a starry image to replace the sky and this is what I came up with. It seems, kind of like cheating but it is fun and the images are pretty cool. Whether you are a fan of this or not it is fun to see what technology allows us to do.
Dramatic Iceberg. One thing I like to do is play with my iceberg images and find new ways to create a different view of an iceberg. I will be doing an article on photoPXL.com where I show this iceberg in more than a dozen different ways. Look for that soon. These giant icebergs always give me new ways of seeing. These are unique images. Unlike many landscape photos these photos are dynamic. Within a few days, this iceberg will take on a whole different look. It may break apart and it may flip over. Either way, these icebergs define what Antarctica is all about – A dynamic Landscape.
Planaeu Bay, Antarctica, the iceberg graveyard. This is a great place to visit and one place that I have done some of my best iceberg photos. This bay is full of grounded icebergs and once they get grounded they begin to erode and naturally make beautiful sculptured giant pieces of ice. This was made with a Sony a7r iv and 100-400mm lens. I’ll be sharing some close-ups of the ice in some future photos.
Rust, rust, rust . . I love rust and especially the rust of Antarctica. This photo was made on Deception Island in Antarctica. I have been working on a whole series of rust in Antarctica and it will be part of an upcoming article where I share my different rust images. I liked this one with the ladder and graffiti. Funny to see graffiti even in Antarctica. Photographed with a Sony a75iv and 100-400mm zoom lens.
This will is the first of a lot of iceberg photos. I recently returned from Antarctica and shot thousands of images. This image was processed normally then I took it into Luminar 4 where I have some presets to bring out color and detail that I like for iceberg shots. I’ll do a tutorial on this on photoPXL.com in the near future.
