Justin Hill22,601114 HDR Photographers :- Here's my second circle share for the weekend. I have two circles for photographers and this is my second which concentrates on those that indulge in HDR photography. Some in this circle use the technique all the time and others only once in a while. Each and every one of them is a great photographer in their own right which is why I added them and created this circle carefully over time. You won't see much overblown HDR here, they are all very good at what they do and their images prove it. Once again this circle was put together by me and all within it were hand picked due to my likes and preferences. If I have left you out then I am sorry but I simply cannot put everyone I see in a circle so i have been deliberately selective.  Please feel free to add them all to your own circles or pick your way through and select just a few. By all means share if you so wish. Enjoy...2013-10-13 20:19:15114202CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117CC G+
Promote Photography8,407THE FIRST 401 PROMOTED!!!!You have been chosen by +Promote Photography  because your work is very good and have to be promoted / shared.If you do not share this circle you will still be in it! But if you do share we will be thankful to you!Next share at 500If you like to be in it you can tag us #promotephotography there is no guaranty but it will help us found your work!Share if you like!  READ THIS NOTE BY +Rodney Campbell (well seen, thank you!)Note that I got an error when trying to add the Circle +Promote Photography  - not the usual domain restriction error where it still creates the circle but the one where it says it can't add one or more people and/or pages.Unfortunately it's +Alycia Miller  entry which is causing the error for me (and also for at least one other circle I'm aware of) - when I remove her from the circle before adding it adds fine. +Alycia Miller  is already in multiple of my circles so not a problem for me but others may not be able to add this circle. I can also see her account looks to have been Fubar'd by G+ at the moment (it's empty of posts)2013-09-01 10:58:4040113462113CC G+

The Square Tilted Pano

I finally can use my 17mm T/S lens for long exposures thanks to the +LEE Filters system that provides an adapter ring for that lens.

In order to create this square pano, I shot two pictures in landscape mode, the first with the lens shifted down and the second shifted up. I've also tilted the lens to get a very shallow depth of field only focusing on the waterfall.

6 Minutes

Yep, that's how long it took to capture this picture. Actually, it was 12 minutes but that's just for the photo geeks and they will know what I'm talking about.

I'm not too crazy about the clouds but we couldn't get anything better that day in Brunnen, Switzerland at Lake Lucerne and staying longer wasn't really an option as +Johan Peijnenburg would have turned into a human red-light despite layers of suncream... :)

In a forest, not far, far away from home...

I love my 17mm T/S lens a lot but until yesterday, I wasn't able to use it for long-exposures. If you look at the beast you know why - it has this gigantic dome of glass in front that makes it (almost) impossible to screw any types of filters to it.

Luckily, #LeeFilters  has this giant adapter ring ($$$$) that let's you use the Lee filter system on that lens and that's exactly what I found in the box that UPS delivered yesterday. 

I've been using a combination of screw-on filters and the Coqin system in the past and had some issues with big stoppers (light leaks, color shifts, etc.) so I decided to bite the bullet and invest into Lee. The only thing missing is the 105mm screw on polarizer that nobody seems to have on stock.

I just did a few tests yesterday but so far I'm very pleased witht... more »

Twin Falls

I had a fun 14 hours shooting day with +Johan Peijnenburg last week and this was my favorite picture. We found that waterfall at the very end of the Muotatal valley in central Switzerland where we probably looked like aliens with our baseball hats and... ok, no more details.

I had to do a little climbing and it was quite a balance act to keep the tripod and myself somehow steady on some giant boulders.

Size Matters

It was pouring rain and I was hoping for fog but at the end I was quite pleased with the clouds and how the valley on the other side of the lake (that's where I live, btw) balance the composition. 

I first tried to shoot it without an ND grad but to keep details in the highlights I had to sacrifice shadow details in the foreground so I put a 1-stop ND grad in front of the big stopper (10 stops) to get a 4 minute exposure at f/13 and ISO 50 that gave me enough light on the dark rock without blowing out the bright clouds in the back.

This is Lake Zug (Zugersee) in Immensee, Switzerland

There is no bad weather in photography, just bad light!

This is the BTS shot of my long exposure session in the rain earlier today.

Stay tuned fo the resulting shot and I bet it's not going to have a lot of color in it..

R.I.P. Anja Niedringhaus

According to the BBC (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-26881347), AP photographer Anja Niedringhaus was shot and killed today by a police officer in eastern Afghanistan while documenting the presidential elections.

Just 2 days ago, she posted below picture on her blog.

Golden Beach

It sometimes is more important what you leave out of the frame than what you keep inside the frame. 

I made this beach look much quieter than it was by shooting with a long lens (135mm).

I shot this picture from Santa Monica Pier on a sunny Sunday afternoon - you can guess how busy it was...

The Bridge II

I shot a total of 3 (8-shot) Multi Exposures of the bridge - this is #2. It took me almost 2 hours to shoot all 3 as I had to walk around it from one side of the river to the other for every composition and had to find spots that  were about the same distance from the tower and had an interesting background in different places of the frame.

PS: I uploaded the full resolution version of the image so if you zoom in, you might find a lot of interesting details like Mount Pilatus, Mount Rigi, Hotel National, Hotel Montana, several churches and much more...

Lucerne Street Lamps I

I was shooting in Lucerne yesterday and I found those awesome looking antique street lamps along the river. Unfortunately, I couldn't find more than 2 of this type so I took 4 pictures of each from different perspectives.
I've used the in-camera multi-exposure feature of my Canon 5DIII but I wasn't able to overlay the lamps quite as well as I desired so I processed this version in Photoshop by aligning the 8 shots manually and using the screen blending mode after changing the exposure of each frame in Lightroom by -3 stops.

I guess I shall write a blog post with the exact procedure of this technique and stop bothering you with this technical non-sense...

Octennial

This is the "Wasserturm" which is part of "Kapellbruecke", the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe as well as the world's oldest surviving truss bridge (Wikipedia told me that...)

It has been photographed approximately two gazillion times of which 90% were done by Japanese tourists but I'm probably the first who shot it this way... at least I couldn't find any other picture like that on the web.

It might help to get a little drunk to see all the details but the beauty of this abstract image is that you see all major landmarks in and around Lucerne in one picture...

The Halo Effect

No, it's not an effect but when I drove to work on that October morning a few years ago, it seemed like Mount Pilatus was pushing away the clouds from its surroundings. Everything else around it was covered in thick layers of clouds.

That's one of the reasons I always carry a camera with me - you never know what's going to happen....

How do you know you're a photographer?

No, it's not about owning a big, fat DSLR and lenses with red rings and it's also not about being a so called "pro" that makes a living from photography... there are enough soulless pro's out there and I've met quite a few...

I think, it's about what I've experienced today:

We were about to have dinner today and everybody was already sitting at the table.
It happened just a few hours ago - I noticed the last beams of sunlight were hitting the mountain top across the valley from our house. It was snowing all day long and just started the clear up a. I also noticed the clouds that were flying across the summit like they were blown away by the setting sun. I took a seat at the dining table but couldn't stop turning my head over and over again and wanted to run for my camera but the... more »

The Pier

I've shot that pier a bit more than 3 years ago on a very special December morning while it was covered with a layer of fresh snow from an overnight storm and it published by National Geographic and made it into their "Best Wallpapers of 2011" selection:

http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/wallpaper/photography/photos/best-wallpapers-2011/lake-zug-central-switzerland/

Ever since that morning I haven't returned to shoot the pier from this perspective but the light was just right a few days ago and I gave it another shot, without snow but in the evening.

I wish I had the light from this evening with the snow from 2010... but no, I'm not going to create a composite... not a chance... :)

Had a great sunset LE shooting session yesterday at Lake Zug with +Daniel Diggelmann. The clouds were pretty good, at least low on the horizon.

Scottish Nightlife

Downtown Braemar in Scotland has a fabulous nightlife!

I otherwise couldn't explain the lack of people on the streets, they must be partying somewhere in a secret club, I just couldn't find it.

Well anyway, I decided to keep shooting the streets and this is what I got.

An Old House in Braemar

Braemar ist IMO a Must Stop when traveling to Scotland. I could probably spend a week in the area without running out of great compositions. The drive alone from Edinburgh to Braemar was worth the entire trip.

I found this house across the street from our B&B.

Grande Galerie de l'Evolution

This is the same section of the Museum national d'Histoire naturelle in Paris in which I've shot this picture (https://plus.google.com/114634469290344215480/posts/2CsngjskzHN) and got into some troubles with a security guard. You can see the little bench (right of the Elephant) that I was sitting on with my gorillapod.  I've also used the gorillapod for this HDR but placed it on the ground behind the railing - luckily my lens fit barely through and no security guard saw me...pheew.

The museum would be quite interesting - IF you speak/read French!!! - There is not a single word of english or any other language than French written inside those walls which I found rather disappointing. I understand this is their national museum but still... come on... I therefore would not recommend it to anyone not speaking/reading French.

Long Exposure Photography with an iPhone!

I photographed this waterfall with an iPhone 4S and a tiny little gorillapod that was sitting on a slippery rock with me right behind trying not to fall into the freezing water - I succeeded and I didn't kill the iPhone, too.

I've used the Average Camera Pro (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/average-camera-pro/id415577873?mt=8) to create the long exposure effect. The result is obviously not as smooth as with a real long exposure but it gets fairly close. 
The only real drawback of that app is that in order to shoot up to 128 exposures and convert it into one picture, it needs to shrink the resolution to around 2 Megapixel but it's still enough to view it on the web.
It also drains the battery quite fast when you're shooting those 128 exposure series...

Louvre Pyramid - Full Perspective

I've had this picture in mind the minute I knew I was going to Paris.

After the Eiffel Tower, the Lourvre Pyramid is most likely the most photographed structure/building in Paris so I wanted to do something different. 

I therefore decided to create a multi-exposure photograph consisting of 8 shots. I placed myself at the 4 sides and 4 corners of the pyramid trying to keep the same distance for every single shot and align each individual frame so the pyramid would overlap with the others. The thousands of tourists didn't make it easier but I didn't mind them in the picture as this place is supposed to be crazy and busy. 

I created the multi-exposure in-camera  but used Nik's Color Efex Pro to add some punch as multi-exposure pictures shot in average mode usually come out really flat. As a finishing touchI&... more »

Saint-Pierre de Montmartre

We went up to Montmartre in Paris to see the famous Sacré-Cœur Basilica which is loaded with security guards and tourists and photographed to death despite the strict no-Photography rule (inside)

Right behind the Basilica is the much smaller Saint-Pierre de Montmarte that nobody seems to visit but it has - at least in my honest opinion - much more character. I might insult a few people with that comment but hey, let them be insulted. 

I was actually absolutely alone inside the church and nobody bothered me shooting pictures. I also couldn't find any stickers that prohibited me from taking those photographs...

This is the Museum Nationale d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. I've used the shiny surface of one of the glass boxes to create a mirror effect of the staircases and elevators.

My very own security guard

I shot this in the Museum Nationale d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. They don't like tripods so I brought my Joby Gorillapod which got the attention of one of the many security guards rather quickly. It took them about 15 seconds after I started my first 30 sec exposure on a bench to approach me explaining - in french - that I couldn't use that tripod. I then started explaining - in french (!!!) - that this wasn't a tripod but a gorillapod. He then said that I could use it but without spreading the legs (not mine!! the gorillapod's legs). I asked very politely (well, as politely as my very weak french could handle) if I could do just one exposure with the legs spread very little. At this stage he was tired of continuing the discussion with me (and my french), smiled and walked away.... as you can see, he didn't go very far and kept an eye on... more »
