Bridgeton Revisited With The Phase One XT

1m00s, Automated Frame Average

Bridgeton, IN is a special place.  It has a covered bridge, waterfall and a grist mill.  Combine it with a dramatic sky and it lends itself to a great testing ground for the Phase One XT camera system.  The Phase One XT is a sort of a technical camera with a number of cool features.  One of those is Frame Averaging.  This feature allows for the camera to do the work of a neutral density filter.  I never realized just how cool this feature was until I used it and instantly became addicted to it.  The method is pretty simple.  First you pick an exposure and focus the way you want it for a single exposure.  Once you have an image that works for you it’s time to choose what timing you want of a long exposure.  You may want a 20 second exposure to get a nice blur to water or clouds or even a longer one for more dramatic results.  For me, I take a number of various timed exposures and then choose what works best.  Eventually you get good at figuring things out for desired exposures.

These are two images one straight exposure and one for a two minute plus exposure.  I’ll have lots more to say about this in a future article on in the near future.

Gum Trees

Gum Tree
Gum Tree, Australia

There are many things to love about Australia.  I have a lot of fo friends there and have traveled there a number of times.  The landscapes can be really beautiful.  Throughout the centra; part of Australia there are these beautiful gum trees.  These are gorgeous shaped trees with white bark.  As in this picture, the white bark really contrasts with the bluff walls in Orbiston Gorge.

Farm In The Palouse

I’m going to be in the Palouse again from August 10-17th photographing the harvest.  The Palouse region is one of my favorite places to photograph in America.  It’s always different and there are no cliched image locations.  You need to seek out and find the shot.  There are rolling fields of green wheat in the early summer and golden wheat in August.  This photo is of a typical farm and with what I call the Palouse sky.  Always something special.

Being Square Seeing Double Project Update

I have been working on a personal project for the last two years and I am now at the editing and selection stage.  This is a project of square format images made as double exposures.  Lots of fun and something different.  I’ll show a major selection of these at my gallery at the end of April.  I’ll share more over the coming weeks.
