return

“Things go away to return, brightened for the passage” ~ A.R. Ammons

As always when I am away from her, I am looking forward to my return to the sea.  In two weeks, I’ll be back on the coast, gazing out across a different sea, with warm sun on my cheeks and a gentle breeze blowing through my hair, listening spellbound to the secrets in her crashing waves.  She tempts me.

Two years ago in March, I was in Borneo watching the sun set across the South China sea.  At that time, I never imagined that a year later, I would be watching the sunset from the tip of the African continent and another year later from the southern end of Ireland.  

What and amazing life to live, on this beautiful planet.  So much to discover, so much to return to.

Here’s a quick edit with Tonality Pro (+Macphun Software) from my very fun, first time rooftopping with some of the Dubai greats, +Beno Saradzic  +Daniel Cheong and +Baber Afzal (who got us access to the roof - yay!). Thank you guys!! I had a fabulous time. And it was made even better with some very tasty Pakistani breakfast afterwards. Yum!

Macphun's creative kit is by far the best photo editing plugin package for photographers using Mac computers. For a limited time, you can buy it at a discounted rate and receive a bundle of photography educational materials as well, including my Africa with Athena video. If you don't have the creative kit already, this is an offer too good to miss. :) But hurry because it's a limited time offer.

If you decide to purchase, please use the above link. This allows you to help me out by giving me credit for your purchase. ;)

Amazing news for Photographers - Nik Collection is now FREE!

Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now. ___Amazing news for Photographers - Nik Collection is now FREE!

I am SO excited to share with you a beautiful video review that I did with the guys from F-Stop Gear on their Ultralight bag for women, The Kashmir. We took a quick trip to beautiful Macedonia so I could test the bag out and unsurprisingly, I fell in love with it.
Link to the bag: http://goo.gl/Vl4owV

AND there are a couple of special discounts going right now. If you order a Kashmir bag, you can get 33% off any ICUs you buy with it with the code: KASHMIRICU33OFF

But wait! If you are a big strong guy who wants a Mountain series bag instead, you can save 33% too, with the code ICU33OFF. Something for everyone! :)

Perspective.
Is it Impending Doom? or The Worst has Past?
I don't do New Year's resolutions and I'm not interested in dwelling on the past. My primary focus lately is to experience the best in each moment.
Sounds lovely, doesn't it? Yeah, I fail a lot, but I'm getting better at it and when I get it right, it's SO worth it. So here's to enjoying NOW - appreciating what is, what we have, who we are and who we are with.
Happy Now. Ok, ok - Happy New Year too. :)

This image is from the stunning Copper Coast in Southern Ireland. John Dunne and I are leading two workshops there later this year.
You could join us! More information here: www.lightlandandsea.com

Space in Which to Breathe
Sometimes that is all we need.  This was a beautiful morning at the Avalon Pier with lots of fresh sea air to breathe.  The sea is always a place of both calm and energy for me, where I can resettle and refocus myself.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a sandy beach or a rocky shore.  Luckily for me, I should be standing by the sea again in about five days, in Scotland. :)

Where do you go to recharge?

"Hope" -Bodie Island, Outer Banks, NC
www.athenacarey.com

Its been ages since I uploaded a new photo. Honestly I have been so busy with life and work that I haven't had a chance to edit any of my own. This one caught my eye today though as I was emptying memory cards for my next trip.

It's from my very recent trip to the Outer Banks with the +Mountains To Sea Workshops guys. We'd headed out to Bodie Island to shoot the lighthouse, and well...me being the non-conformist that I am, this is what I ended up shooting. Standing in the area that says you should be in it because there are poisonous snakes. :)

Tomorrow I'm off to Ireland with clean CF cards and the desire to see a lot of sunrises. I hear they don't have any snakes there.  Thanks St. Patrick. ;)

This year the Euro Photowalk is going to be in Scotland, September 18-20th and will include lots of modern architecture, two cool bridges, a lighthouse. a few castles and a pier.  We’ll spend Saturday in Glasgow shooting modern buildings and Sunday head out (early!) to see a bit of the countryside. So format those memory cards and charge your batteries, because we’ll be shooting quite a few locations! 

Our plan is to share three meals together - Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and Sunday lunch and we’d like to make bookings to ensure that this is possible.  Please RSVP here if you will join us for the Photowalk and which (all!) meals you will also join.  :)

“Things go away to return, brightened for the passage” ~ A.R. Ammons

As always when I am away from her, I am looking forward to my return to the sea.  In two weeks, I’ll be back on the coast, gazing out across a different sea, with warm sun on my cheeks and a gentle breeze blowing through my hair, listening spellbound to the secrets in her crashing waves.  She tempts me.

Two years ago in March, I was in Borneo watching the sun set across the South China sea.  At that time, I never imagined that a year later, I would be watching the sunset from the tip of the African continent and another year later from the southern end of Ireland.  

What and amazing life to live, on this beautiful planet.  So much to discover, so much to return to.

+Armand Dijcks sharing a very cool videography secret from the Africa with Athena videos. So cool. 😊

www.AfricaWithAthena.com

This is me practicing my upside down tripod stabilization technique while filming +Athena Carey in South Africa, for the Africa with Athena tutorial - http://africawithathena.com - Here's how it works:

I needed to create a couple of sweeping camera moves and "walking shots" close to the ground. Since I didn't have any fancy stabilization equipment with me (that would have been way too heavy to carry across these dunes anyway) I used a different techique. Basically, I turn my tripod upside down and hold it by the center column. That column has been extended exactly to the point where my hand is at the center of gravity of the whole tripod-camera assembly. This prevents lateral movements of my hand from tilting the camera.

In addition, I extend the tripod legs and fold them outward a bit, which further reduces the tendency of the whole thing to rotate with any uncoordinated moves of my hand. I hold the tripod with the tips of my fingers and my arm somewhat extended, to make it's motion smoother.

This way I can walk and even run across uneven terrain, and it will look surprisingly smooth. The only problem is that it gets physically tiring after 20 seconds or so, holding out all that weight with your arm extended while walking. So now you know my secret to creating (almost) perfectly smooth camera motion shots without expensive gear.___+Armand Dijcks sharing a very cool videography secret from the Africa with Athena videos.

Africa with Athena is a holistic video tutorial for photographers.

Let me take you with me on a trip to the Western Cape of Africa where I will explain to you what photography means to me and how I approach it: from planning a trip, finding shooting locations, dealing with weather, choosing gear, connecting to the places, using light and composition to express her feelings all the way through to downloading the files and processing the images. Join me in this three part adventure for over an hour of photography instruction.

Last Autumn, +John Dunne, +Andy Bitterer and I lead our annual photowalk this year to Donegal Ireland.  +Donegal Photowalk 2014  We all had a marvellous time and were for the most part treated to wonderful weather along with the stunning locations.

This location, Burt Castle required smoozing with the locals for some creative parking permissions, mooing with a few cows, a steep uphill climb, scraping over some barbed wire and carefully avoiding a farmer's freshly planted field.  But as you can see, it was well worth it.
