Google Science Fair2,860,349*The Science of Photography* Digital photography offers amazing flexibility to capture and modify images. But how does the science of photography actually work? What are the basic principles of light, and how do they affect how photographers shoot? How do different cameras and lenses capture images differently? And how do software tools change the way those images are ultimately viewed? Come to this Hangout On Air with +Trey Ratcliff, the world-class photographer whose work is displayed at StuckInCustoms.com. He will be interviewed by +Robert Scoble, well-known blogger, technology analyst, and amateur photographer, as well as our very own Google Student Ambassadors. Here's your chance to learn about the science behind those amazing images. Have questions for our guests? Post comments on Google+ with #GSF2013.

Sandhill Cranes at Whitewater Draw
At night the cranes go stand out in the shallow water to seek safety from predators. Every morning when the day’s first light starts to creep into the sky all the cranes start talking, cackling up a big storm, and as the light gets brighter the cranes get louder and louder. When the sun rises, they begin to take flight to make their way to nearby fields to feed. This means there are incredible opportunities to photograph birds in flight because they keep doing it one after another after another until all the birds are gone. And then later in the day, they all come back!

Leopard in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
The leopards are elusive and sneaky, but also quite lazy it seems! Perhaps their burst of energy when hunting exhausts them for the rest of the day, but they are always lying around on rocks or in trees with their limbs hanging down like they don’t have an ounce of energy left.

Humpback Whales Breaching
It was one of those days out on the water when not much was happening. It was quiet. Not very many boats, not a lot of birds or anything. The sky was boring and white. It was a little windy and cold. And then … off in the distance … a long way away … a huge splash!

Giraffes in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
The giraffes are graceful in their movements, even when running! But a group walking together at twilight light is a special memory.

It may be chaotic, but if you can combine good light, a clean graphic design, and interesting behaviour in your image, you’ll have a keeper.

Wildlife Photography in Serengeti National Park – Part 2
The zebras are very affectionate with each other, always rubbing their heads together, and there’s just something about the way their stripes always line up.

Buffalo Horns in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
At one place where we stopped, there were no lions in the area, which meant we could get out and stretch our legs a bit and I found these wonderfully preserved buffalo horns.

Sandhill Cranes at Whitewater Draw
As you can see, tens of thousands of birds create a bit of chaos! To make a compelling photographs, you have to find a way to make order out of the chaos. It is important to find separation between the birds and look for patterns that create interesting graphic designs in your image.

Bisti Arch, Bisti Badlands, New Mexico
To make it look a bit more impressive than it looks in person, I made my image from a very low perspective and angled my camera upwards which makes it look larger. This is where the articulating LCD screen on my Sony NEX6 comes in handy because I didn’t have to lie on the ground or anything to do it. I also used a wide-angle lens to get the width of the arch as well as some foreground in the frame. I had to wait until the last light of the day to get the warm golden rays on the arch – I love how the gold and blue look together.

Sandhill Cranes at Whitewater Draw, Arizona
Every year around 30,000 sandhill cranes, along with plenty of other waterbirds, spend their winter at this small 1,600 acre preserve. There is a lovely little pathway that meanders along the pond with plenty of platforms providing excellent viewpoints for photographing the birds.

Working the Scene at Folly Beach
When you “work the scene” it is most important to remember what attracted you to the scene in the first place. This is not about randomly taking snapshots with different perspectives. It is about focusing your attention more closely on the most important aspects of the scene and thinking of compositions that will portray these aspects in the best way.

Falling Water Cascade, Virginia
It was so windy in Shenandoah National Park during our visit that I didn’t get many fall colour photos there. But we continued on down the Blue Ridge Parkway which runs around 450 miles through the mountains along the Appalachian Trail. This is a waterfall that is not in the National Park, but it was one of the prettiest spots I found along the Parkway.

5 Tips for Golden Hour Photography
It’s pretty much an accepted fact that the earlier and later parts of the day are best for photography, but if you want the absolute richest, warmest, most beautiful light, the hours directly following sunrise and leading up to sunset – known as the golden hours – are prime time for natural light.

Great Blue Heron Abstract
One of the things I love about my current location on the estuary in Campbell River, British Columbia, is all the birds that frequent my back yard. Every day there are eagles, herons, geese and all sorts of small birds, so I get lots of practice with my bird photography.

Conveying Motion: A Wildebeest Abstract
There are two ways to convey motion in an image: freeze the motion or blur the motion. While watching wildebeest cross the Mara river during the migration in Tanzania, and making many photos that froze the action, it was time to start experimenting with slow shutter speeds to create a more abstract image that contains some motion blur.

Video: Dolphin Watching in Discovery Passage, British Columbia
I love exploring the local waters on my little boat, Snoopy, during my summers on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

There’s nothing better than combining my love for the ocean with my love for photography by going out on the water and looking for some wildlife to photograph.

Dramatic Contrast with Topaz Adjust
http://annemckinnell.com/2015/07/21/dramatic-contrast-with-topaz-adjust/

Topaz Adjust is one of my favourite plugins for enhancing contrast, detail and colour in my photos. It's the plugin that I always recommend to people who don't own any plugins yet because it has the most variation in styles and the most versatility.
 
See some examples of how I have used it to process my photos today on the blog.
 
There's also a 40% off coupon. More details in the post.

The Peddler’s Cart
In the 1800’s, peddlers would travel from farm to farm using person- or animal-drawn carts to supply isolated populations with basic goods such as pots and pans, tools, and cloth. For many of those farms, the closest community could be more than a day’s travel making the peddler a vital part of life.

Shakedown on the way to the Cabot Trail
Cape Breton Highlands National Park sits on the northern section of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and is home to one of the worlds most scenic drives, the Cabot Trail. Back in the 17th century this area was known as Ile Royal and was a colony of New France. Today it is part of Canada’s acadian region, which includes Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and part of Quebec.

City of Rocks State Park New Mexico
Most of the RV’s park just outside the rocks, but we managed to squeeze our RV into a site that backed right on to the rocks. What a great spot!

I made this panorama photo from another set of rocks across from the campground. Our RV is the one that is farthest away.

In my blog post Noise Reduction with Topaz DeNoise, you can find out more about noise in digital photography and see some examples of how I use Topaz DeNoise to remove it from my images.
 
Topaz DeNoise will analyze your image and reduce noise only in the areas where it is needed. You'll keep all the detail and loose all the noise.
 
More details in the post.

Crested Cranes in Flight at Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania
There are so many large animals that some of the smaller animals take a back seat at first until you start becoming acclimated to the place. Then, it’s the combination of animals that becomes awe inspiring.

City of Rocks State Park New Mexico
It was like a tiny version of the Jumbo Rocks in Joshua Tree, but fascinating because they’re all thrown together with flat prairie all around and lovely rolling hills off in the distance. It’s a wonderful scene to make an image with a lot of depth to it.
