I hope you can join me for a free public presentation in southern Oregon tomorrow night! Tomorrow marks one year since I photographed this lunar eclipse over Mt. Shasta and it is also when I'll be making my annual presentation at the Southern Oregon Photographic Association. I'll be telling the story behind this photo and others I took during the past year. I will also be sharing some tips for dealing with high dynamic range in landscape photography.
The presentation at SOPA will be at 7:00 p.m. at 888 Twin Creeks Crossing, Central Point, OR. If you are in the area and interested in landscape photography, come on out!

"Two Guardians"
Four exposures merged using the new HDR Photo Merge feature in Lightroom CC. I demo the feature in my recent video blog on Photo Cascadia which you can check out here: http://www.photocascadia.com/blog/new-hdr-and-panorama-photo-merge-in-lightroom-cc-2015

After merging the exposures I made some initial adjustment in LR and then opened in PS for additional work with luminosity mask techniques to achieve the final piece.

"Rovinj" - Taken the Adriatic coast of Croatia with a Sony NEX-7.
Are you a compact camera enthusiast? In this podcast with Pocket Lenses we talk about using small, high quality cameras, including one that will fit in my bike jersey pocket when riding 110 miles per day down the Oregon coast next week: http://www.pocketlenses.com/023/
I had a great time traveling with the NEX-7 in Croatia last summer. Light weight and great image quality and resolution=sweet! More and more great compact cameras coming out all the time.

Announcing a new version of the TKActions panel for Photoshop. This is the fourth version of this custom luminosity mask panel (V4), and it has been completely rebuilt by Tony Kuyper to take advantage of new capabilities in Photoshop extension panels–smaller footprint, smarter buttons, updated interface, and more features.

New video blog: Advantages of Transparent Layer Dodging/Burning. http://www.photocascadia.com/blog/video-tutorial-advantages-of-transparent-layer-dodging-and-burning

In the video on the Photo Cascadia blog I show how to use a transparent layer in Photoshop to gain greater control over dodging and burning adjustments than any other method I know. These two images show a before/after example. I used the technique to bring out the highlight contours in the foreground foliage and create more mood and depth in the sky. Watch the video to learn how, then give it a try and see what you think.

Stormy weather can be challenging, but it has potential to produce the best natural lighting conditions.

"Greensprings Sunset"
One for the Rogue Valley folks.This is a photo I took in the hills above Ashland on this exact date in 2009. I re-developed it today for a print order. I think it is subtly better in many ways, owing to a combination of improvements in LR and PS, along with improvements in my techniques. I almost always re-work images that I haven't worked on for several years. Images developed entirely in LR can be modified at any time, but with PS it is necessary to maintain layers and work in a way that allows adjustments to be modified later if needed. In this case, some of my skills with selections and luminosity masks back in 2009 were problematic enough that I chose to start from scratch.

Canon 5D, 16-35mm lens, four exposures all at f/18, ISO 200. The extreme dynamic range, wind motion and sun flare required me to hand blend the exposures. The new PhotoMerge in LR... more »

"Helix"
Now for something completely different (for me anyway). This is the double helix staircase in the tower of Ljubljana Castle in the capital city of Ljubljana, Slovenia. The golden spiral is classically intriguing to the eye, but it was the red balusters radiating up through the composition that really grabbed my attention.

Sony NEX-7, 24mm focal length. I used F/4 and ISO 1000 so that I could get a hand-holdable 1/60 of a second shutter speed in the low light. I held the camera through the bars to get this perspective.

Latest from +Tony Kuyper: Is there a visible advantage using 16-bit luminosity masks instead of 8-bit?
If you are a luminosity mask/TKActions user and concerned about using masks made from 8-bit luminosity selections, Tony's in-depth article should put you at ease. The two main take-aways from the article: 
1 - There is essentially no visible difference using 8-bit vs 16-bit masks in real world situations. 
2 - Tony intends to incorporate a 16-bit mask process into his custom panel in the near future anyway...because why not?

"Asgard"
My take on the dramatic Cape Perpetua coastline in Oregon from a few weeks ago. Of course, this is the spouting horn popularly known as Thor's Well.

It is one of the more popular photography locations along Oregon's coast, but I had never photographed in this exact spot. We were in the area for a workshop so +David Cobb and I went to have a look. It turned out by chance that the tide and wave action at sunset was perfect so we got the cameras out. The window for these particular conditions here is even narrower than I imagined. 20 minutes before sunset the tide was too low, and no waves were making it up on the rocks. By the time the sun had set the tide was high enough that waves were completely swamping the spot where I had been standing. It was cool that the right wave action just happened to coincide with the very last rays of sun on the rocks that day. I... more »

I assume most folks do their research and plan ahead a little better smile emoticon

I often see photos here which look right out toward the setting sun. I really liked the looming headland to the north so I composed facing that direction, which also gave great side light and polarization. I did blend a few different frames together, both for dynamic range and wave action.

"Yaquina Head"

A couple weeks ago, several workshops peeps and I had fun getting down or our knees to compose the eel grass and last light in the foreground for this photo. I used the new Photo Merge feature in LR to blend four exposures for dynamic range and then took it to PS to do the main developing work.

After working with the new Photo Merge a bit more I'm still impressed with the quality and natural look. However, I am noticing issues with the ghost removal feature. It isn't visible in this web size version, but the de-ghosting of the wave motion around the rocks certainly created issues with visible blending boundaries and lots of shadow noise that would show up in a print. These are issues that I would have been able to mitigate if I had hand blended in PS.

If you plan on photographing Zion this year my buddy from Moab, +Bret Edge, just released a new eGuide for Zion National Park. It's very well done and 5% of proceeds go to National Parks Conservation Association, National Park Foundation, The Wilderness Society and The Nature Conservancy. Guides for other parks coming soon.

+Chip Phillips explains how he uses Google Maps on his phone for logging photo locations and navigating to them. He has found this works better than any GPS app or GPS unit he has tried. My location logging system is pretty weak, so I'm excited to give this a try. Thanks Chip!

"Two Guardians"
Four exposures merged using the new HDR Photo Merge feature in Lightroom CC. I demo the feature in my recent video blog on Photo Cascadia which you can check out here: http://www.photocascadia.com/blog/new-hdr-and-panorama-photo-merge-in-lightroom-cc-2015

After merging the exposures I made some initial adjustment in LR and then opened in PS for additional work with luminosity mask techniques to achieve the final piece.

"Seal Rock"
A moody morning photo from Seal Rock State Park the day before the workshop started. Not much color this morning so I thought about composition, motion and tones. It was spectacular to get back outside with the camera and a great group of talented photographers. Thanks to everyone for a great weekend!

"The Mariner Remembers"
I redeveloped this photo from 2011 in anticipation of my workshop season beginning this weekend on the Oregon coast with +David Cobb. I think it is interesting to see how a photo evolves in the developing process so I included what the raw file looked like out of the camera for comparison. Raw files are indeed called "raw" for a reason...they contain the raw materials but they are often lacking "soul" or artistic expression. That's our job.

4 seconds, f/16, ISO 200, 24mm focal length.

"Fly Before The Dawn"
From a fall photography trip I took to the Tetons in 2011. I noticed that the early red twilight on the horizon to my left was softly illuminating the underside of the clouds but stars were still visible in the sky. The exposure time and cloud movement allowed the color to really show in the image. The light level and cloud movement was such that a 30 second exposure was long enough to blur the clouds but short enough to keep the stars as pinpoints.

30 seconds, f/4, ISO 200, 16mm focal length.

"Nightfall"
Here's a moody image from one of my favorite locations on the Southern Oregon coast with Mr. +John B. Tebbetts. This was another one of those gray days which showed a moment of brilliance right at sunset. A small opening in the clouds let some red sunlight pierce the gathering darkness. It wasn't enough to light up the underside of the clouds so most of the scene retained it's overall dark and moody character.

Canon 5D3, 16-35mm, f/16, ISO 100, two exposures (8 seconds and 1.6 seconds) blended for extended dynamic range. Tonality, clarity, dodging and burning and color adjustments were made in Photoshop making extensive use of various luminosity masking techniques to control the adjustments.
