One of the cool things about the Palouse is you just don’t know what you will find around the next corner. One day while shooting on our workshop we turned a bend in the road and we saw this crop duster do amazing low flights over fields of wheat. So, naturally we stopped and took photos. This is one of them.
If you are interested in photographing the Palouse, let me know as an opening just became available on our June Workshop.
On one of my trips to Silo City which is a Grain Silo complex in Buffalo, NY I had the chance to ride a Buffalo fireboat. For me, this was really cool as I was a firefighter for 26 years. We took this fireboat out to the inlet that drew in the water for the water processing plant in Buffalo, NY. You have seen and will see more images of this facility in my blog here. So, while on the fireboat I took the opportunity to photograph everything there was. This is one of those images. I like the stream of water, the rainbow and then the curve of the bow of the ship.
New Orleans is one of Americas greatest cities. It is unlike any other city as it has a deep history and has been through many challenges. The city because it is so prone to flooding and has a very high water table elects to bury their dead above ground. This image was made in one of the many cemeteries around the city. I took the image into my iPad and used a few apps to give it a different look,
Street photography in New York City is always fun and usually quite productive photography wise. I enjoy it because what you photograph usually is not a cliche. It’s there for a short period of time and then is gone as time and the world moves on. This image was done on a staircase coming down from the Highline. I did a double exposure and caught reflections. A win-win I think.
It was a rainy day and my friend and fellow photographer Rad Drew and I headed out to see what we could find. Many photogrpahers would have looked at the weather and would have said screw it I am staying home. But, not us. We headed north from my home and just started driving. We would get to an area that looked promising and then we would just start driving the backrooads.
This image is one from that day. I shot it with my Fuji XT-2 and then after editing it in Capture One, I imported it into my iPad. There I used Snapseed and enhanced it further with texture and tonality. From there I exported onto my iMac Pro and then into Photoshop where I used Topaz studio and the digital frame adjustment to add teh frame. It may seem like a lot of work but in reality it was pretty quick.
Here’s a photo of the Ocean Nova our expedition ship by a glacier in Greenland. Everything in Greenland is imense. even icebrgs wold dwarf our ship. We are headed to Greenland again in 2019. You can check out the information for this trip at the Luminous-Landscape website.
I spent a week in New Orleans about a year ago. I had a great time photographing around the city. One of the days there we took a trip out of the city and traveled along the river. This is a shot I took along the Mississippi river. It is a 10 image stitch to create the long panorama image. I also did some special treatment to give it a cold sharp look.
Sometimes it’s not always the landscape that I shoot. i enjoy photographing many things. While in Oregon along the Columbia River we re we shooting the river and fall colors. I hear the horn of a train and luckily we were position below a set of train tracks that run along the river. I set myself up wanting to see how well continuous autofocus on my camera works and prepare for the train I heard coming. In about a minute this giant mile long train come rushing by. This is the shot I like the best. Low angle and fills the frame just right. Ends up making. pretty cool image.
Like yesterday’s post I look for images that are just part of something bigger. This image is an oil storage tank I found in Valparaiso, Argentine when visiting there. I put the long lens on and shot the tank with the stairway going through from one corner to the other. It makes a viewer stop and look at the image because they don’t know what they are looking at.
Dettifoss in Iceland. The amount of water flowing over this falls is incredible. Where does it all come from? Shot on our summer workshop in Iceland. This waterfall offers numerous different angles to shoot from. You can get right up to the edge too. Pretty cool experience to visit this location.
