New Site Coming

kwr-new-hpYou may have noticed that I haven’t added anything to this site for a while.  It certainly isn’t because of lack of content.  I have been traveling extensively on Luminous-Landscape business as well Rockhopper.  I have been from Iceland to S. America to the Palouse back to Iceland and leaving for Alaska in a week.  While doing all of this I have also been writing articles, producing videos, working on a new photo project and redesigning the Kevin Raber website.

Very soon this site will take on a  whole new look and feel.  Working with my website designers I use for Luminous-Landscape we have come up with a new look and lots more functionality.  We’ll have more galleries and on line print ordering available.  The design is clean and it is easy to navigate and will always look fresh.

So, be patient a while longer and before the end of the summer we should have the new site launched.

Back From Iceland

Icebergs on the beach. They just glowed. We hot the beach at the right time with the right light. What you don't see is the gaggle of Chinese tourists that I had to work around to get this shot.

You may have noticed I have been absent from any recent posts.  This was due to leading a workshop in Iceland for Luminous-Landscape.  We had a great workshop and we saw and did some amazing things.  It was quite the adventure for sure.  We had everything Iceland could throw at us weather wise.  From cold and high winds to beautiful mild winter weather with perfect clouds. So, to get things caught up I will share a number of images I had posted on Facebook during the trip.  My camera for this trip was the Sony A7rII as well as my iPhone.   I had fun using both and you’ll see images made with each.  These images are just a drop in the bucket of some beautiful images I have come home with.  More will be coming.  I am leading another Iceland workshop in June.  And in a few weeks will head off to Patigonia and the Altiplano for two back to back workshops.  So, expect lots of images.

Stockiness, one of my favorites places. I have a number of different and dramatic shots made here over the years.

The Highlands In Iceland

The Highlands, Iceland

The Highlands, Iceland

I am going to Iceland in a few weeks and it is winter in Iceland.  Truly an amazing time of year to see Iceland.  This image was made last June in the Highlands.  An area most tourists don’t go and when you drive into the area it is like being on another planet.

I Made Her Fly

FB_DSF0183-retLast spring I visited Buffalo, New York and participated in a workshop at Silo City.  This is a complex of old abandoned grain elevators.  I hired a model one day there and did a large number of images.  it was good to get back to taking images of people.  On this image I wanted to make the model levitate off the floor.  It worked pretty well.  It was fun too.

In The Alley Waiting

Break Time, Austin, TX

Break Time, Austin, TX

I spent the last few days in Austin, TX shooting with a new Olympus came.  It was a solid three days of capturing various subjects.  The camera the PEN-F has a real nice BW mode.  This image I shot of a worker having a cigarette break in an alley.

Dragging The Shutter

Every now and then I like to play.  Actually I like to play a lot.  I was at the state fair last August and went to the carriage event in the arena area.  I decided I’d take all images at long exposure.  This meant using the motor drive and just trying to get focus correct and then to move the camera with the subject.  I shot hundreds of images and a good deal of them didn’t turn out.  But, every now and then you get a winner.  Here is one I liked.
