"Wedge" - Of all the places we photographed in the Canadian Rockies, Wedge Pond is not the most dramatic (still plenty spectacular though) or remote, but light conditions and camera choices helped make this image for me. The light was fading and the clouds were streaming overhead with the last light on them, a perfect opportunity for a long exposure with a 10 stop ND filter. You'd think four photographers who claim to know what's up would be completely equipped, but somehow we only had one 77mm diameter filter (mine) and one 77mm diameter wide angle lens (Chip's) among us. I bracketed two exposures (90 seconds and 200 seconds) and then handed the lens/filter combo over to Chip. As the light faded his exposures quickly went over four minutes and Adrian never got his turn (sorry dude). Zack shoots a Sony, so he was out of luck from the start.

Fortunately, the entire time we... more »

I'm calling this one "Gold Rush". We had completed a 7 mile hike to Lake O'Hara before sunrise in search of golden larch trees. We knew they were in the area, but it was a first visit for all of us. In our headlamps and the early gloom of Nautical Twilight we couldn't see a single larch. +Chip Phillips weighed in, "I think I read that the larch are actually a couple miles further up past Lake O'Hara." Not wanting to waste our pre-dawn efforts we kept going up the steep, switch-back trail in a painful and desperate shuffle-dash. We arrived at a basin filled with larch and ringed by peaks minutes before sunrise. We scattered, trying to get the lay of the land. If it hadn't been a nine mile hike we certainly would have scouted it first. As it was I was just dumb lucky to be in a good place to take this photo when sunrise color began to brush the clouds.

The on camera interview I did with Joseph Linaschke at PhotoApps.Expert is available to view now. This show is a great introduction/seminar into the skills and techniques involved in creating realistic high dynamic range images. Joseph's new recording studio is sweet, but after watching I'm pretty sure I don't have a future in television. ;-) You'll have to be the judge.

New Bracketing and Blending Collaboration With Visual Wilderness.

I often mention bracketing and blending exposures to capture high dynamic range light such as in this photo. When a camera can't record all of the light in a single exposure, one solution is to take bracketed exposures and blend the best parts of each one to create a natural and complete final image. I have been teaching these skills in classes and video tutorials for several years now.

Expanding on that I'm excited to announce a collaboration with photography educators, Varina and Jay Patel from Visual Wilderness. Together we have created a comprehensive Bracketing and Blending course for folks who want to learn how to photograph and develop natural looking high dynamic range images.

You can find out more about it at the link below.

"Blanketed"
Early snow and valley fog back in September in the Canadian Rockies. The light and atmosphere was very dramatic on this morning. I took several wider shots that I like in color. I also decided to use a telephoto to frame a closer view of the mountains, ridges and cloud layers. I specifically wanted to feature the spots of light in the trees and low lying clouds. Since this image is more about shapes, textures and tones I chose to go black and white. I started developing in color for contrast and tonal balance first and then went to black and white and made additional adjustments to best represent that presentation.

Canon 5DIII, polarizer. 104mm, 1/30 second @ f/16, ISO 100.

"Geothermal"
Hot Creek flows through what remains of the ancient Long Valley Caldera in the Sierra foothills near Mammoth. Boiling water, fumaroles and periodic geyser eruptions provide a dynamic foreground with towering peaks as a backdrop. This is one of the eastern sierra locations we visited on a photo trip back in October.

Canon 5DIII, 24-105mm lens, polarizer. 0.8 seconds, f/16, 55mm, ISO 100.

"Earth's Shadow Rising Behind Aoraki"
Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park, New Zealand in twilight on New Year's Eve. The sun had set, the last of its light painting the upper atmosphere pink while the dark edge of night advanced behind the peaks.

Canon 5DSR, 70-200mm, polarizer, tripod. 4 seconds, 200mm, f/11, ISO 100, mirror lock up, cable release.

The west coast of New Zealand's south island is like no place else on the planet. Dense jungle, giant tree ferns, cabbage trees, wetlands, tons of birds. It looks topical, but the latitude and temperatures are essentially the same as the Oregon coast. This was taken in the marsh land near the mouth of the Hapuka River, south of Haast, New Zealand. Late morning sun was providing strong back lighting to illuminate the foliage.
Video instruction: www.outdoorexposurephoto.com/video-tutorials/video-tutorials

Canon 5DSR, 24-70mm f/2.8 L II, polarizer, hand held. 1/50 second, f/10, ISO 250.
Made good use of luminosity masks and the TKActions V4 panel to carefully work with the contrast and colors and establish a softer tonal balance in a scene that had pretty harsh light.

"Aoraki New Year Sunset"
I took my first photo of 2016 in a place a little different than usual. The past few years my first photo has been taken on the beach in Bandon, Oregon. This year I was with my family in Aoraki Mt. Cook National Park in New Zealand for New Year's. This was the sunset over the southern Alps the first day of 2016. In fact, due to the location of the international dateline just to the east of New Zealand, this is just about the first sunset of 2016 anywhere on Earth other than a few Pacific Islands and very eastern Siberia. I felt it was as fitting and auspicious a start to a new year as I could hope for.

Canon 5DSR, 70-200mm f/4 L, polarizer. Cropped from a wider panorama consisting of five stitched horizontal frames. Each frame was 2 seconds at f/16, ISO 100. The full panorama has more than 27,000 x 6,000 pixels and will print at 90 x 20 inches at 300... more »

"Return to Winter"
This was the sunrise Friday morning at Mt. Ashland! The title has a double meaning. One is referencing my personal return to winter after recently spending a few weeks in the southern hemisphere. The second is in celebration of winter returning to Oregon and specifically my home ski hill, Mt. Ashland, after two long years with very little snow.

I had an exhilarating morning. I photographed sunrise and then skinned to the top of the mountain for a powder run on the south side before the lifts opened.

Canon 5DSR, 24-70 f.2.8 L II, polarizer. .6 seconds, f/11, ISO 100. The chairlift was moving slowly so I took a second exposure at 1/25 second, ISO 800 and bend it in so the chairs weren't blurry.

"Lake Wakatipu Sunset"
Finally back from a spectacular visit to New Zealand with my family. I'm not giving away any secrets in saying that it is one of the most beautiful and wild places on earth. Since it was a family trip I didn't do a lot of dedicated landscape work, but I did sneak out at twilight a couple of times and also made note of many locations where I want to park my tripod when I am able to return on a "work" trip.

This image is sunset on Lake Wakatipu which is where Queenstown is. We were staying about 10 minutes out of town, but I saw the conditions setting up all afternoon and raced down to the lake just in time for the color to appear. I took my new Canon 5DSR and did my first real shooting with it.

I'll have to conduct some tests and follow up with what I determine.

"December Sunrise on Wallowa Lake"

Time was short and the weather was tricky, so we didn't shoot much during our annual Photo Cascadia team gathering last weekend. However, we did get to photograph this sunrise light show on Saturday that blew our minds! It was another one of those times when we were sure it would be a bust, but headed out into the dark anyway, only for the sun to find a small opening near the horizon allowing the light to come streaming through!

This is the first photo I have taken with my new 50MP Canon 5DS R. It will take me a while to get to know it intimately, but first impressions are good. The detail and clarity are certainly ridiculous.
Additional specs: 24-70mm f/2.8 Mark II, polarizer. Three exposures blended for dynamic range at F/13, ISO 100.

"If we set out to make photographs with the goal of being original, we are focusing on what others have done already. The emphasis becomes a matter of what to avoid rather than what to pursue—a process of moving away instead of moving towards."

I want to give a last reminder that the November InFocus Deal comes to a close in 15 hours. You can find out more here https://infocusdeals.com/product/IF-NOV15/?ref=20. Eleven top photographers have contributed educational videos and books to a photography bundle that teaches the tools and techniques we use to create images like these. The best part is that it is 87% off. The bummer is that it goes away at midnight tonight. :-)

"On The Verge", Gothic Peak, Colorado. From an adventure in the Rockies in fall 2014. We hiked in the dark to get to this ridge. It was barely light when I took this but the right camera technique and careful developing brought out the subtle but rich light. Canon 5D III, 47mm, 25 seconds, f/11 ISO 400.

"Endeavor" - I was captivated by this arched cloud and its reflection in Moraine Lake. At first it was barely visible above the peaks and a few minutes later it had passed by overhead. But in this moment it formed an unusual arc through the frame and appears to be emanating from one of the peaks. The human mind loves to find patterns and assign importance, even when something is purely coincidental. This cloud is no different than any other, but the well formed arching shape and it's location causes the brain to give it more attention then it otherwise would. I chose black and white for the image to allow the focus to be on the form, without the distraction of color. Finding and capturing patterns in nature which are both meaningless and meaningful is, for me, one of the most pleasurable challenges of landscape photography.

"Into Light" - We had fun chasing shadows and sunstars after sunrise at Mono Lake a couple weeks ago. The dynamic range is challenging shooting into the sun, as is lens flare, but I love back lighting on grass and the strong shadow lines.

5D III, 16mm, f/22 (for sunstar), ISO 100. Three exposures were blended using various selections and luminosity mask techniques. Two exposures (1/6 and 1/20 seconds) were used to cover the dynamic range and a third (1/6 second) used my thumb over the sun trick to cut unwanted lens flare in the foreground.

"Sunset on West Walker River" - When road tripping I try to keep tuned in to my surroundings and the weather. A couple weeks ago I was making the 9 hour drive to the Eastern Sierra. The clouds were dramatic the entire way but I kept going to make time. I could tell it was going to be a real light show at sunset so I began looking for a place to pull over. Much of Hwy 395 south of Reno is urban or farmland, but I knew that the road followed the Walker River into the mountains once it crossed back into California so I focused on getting there. I made it just in time to pull over at a place I knew and then hopped rocks down stream to a nice cascade. The sky burned orange and reflected in the water for a few minutes and then faded. I climbed back in the truck and continued on my way, arriving in Mammoth well after dark. After 10 days photographing in the Sierra I had all but forgotten that I had taken... more »

"Legends" - Moraine Lake and the Valley of Ten Peaks is one of those places that many people would say is "over photographed"...and it is. But it is still one of the grandest, life inspiring mountain landscapes on Earth. And like everywhere else it's rarely the same twice; the weather, light and seasons are always changing. This photograph certainly doesn't communicate anything new. It isn't even in the top tier of best photos taken in this spot. We were surrounded by photo workshops and tourists shooting the same scene. I'm often conflicted about the value of photographing the over-photographed. Still, photography for me is about what is happening on the inside, the personal connection I make with what I see before me.

Sometimes it is enough for an image to simply be about the joy of the process and that the act taking a photograph enhances my focus and appreciation of light, color, shape and time. My personal experience in places like Moraine Lake is what it is. But whatever it is, photography only improves it. We live on a crowded planet so the opportunities for solitude, unique perspective and original discovery are harder and harder to come by. While I find these aspects to be the most energizing and motivating in photography, I'm also able to find enjoyment and share a classic landscape with millions of my friends.

"Mists of Stanley Lake" - One more share before the weekend. This is another photo I took with my iPhone, with the help of the DxO One, in Idaho in September. The One turns an iPhone into a 20mp camera with full manual controls and takes raw files. I find that if I'm going to be taking a photo with my phone anyway (as we do), but I think it could have some merit, using the DxO One produces a raw file with enough data and dynamic range for extensive developing and it can be printed large with amazing quality.

"Crimson Möbius" - The famous Möbius arch in the Alabama Hills at night. We had been trying to get the photo group out to shoot stars all week, but the dramatic (and welcome) clouds we had each day kept obscuring the night sky. We finally had some clearer skies in Lone Pine so a few of the most energetic participants trekked out into the Alabama Hills in the dark. The moon was situated right in the middle of the Milky Way, washing it out, so we faced the other direction, framed some of the rock formations in the arch while +Christian Heeb light painted with his headlamp in the red "night vision mode". Super fun!

"Edge of the Sky" - Mt. Whitney touching the early glow of dawn while everything else is still in darkness. Back in my climbing days my buddy RokChuk and I climbed the classic East Face Route of Whitney. Whitney is the largest peak on the right and the route we did goes up the face to the left of the shadow line. It was one of the highest, most exposed and fun routes I ever did.

I'm energized to have many new images to share and some time to actually develop them. This image is from the Eastern Sierra Workshop +Christian Heeb and I lead last week. Thanks to our great group. A good time was had by all!

I'm calling this one "Gold Rush". We had completed a 7 mile hike to Lake O'Hara before sunrise in search of golden larch trees. We knew they were in the area, but it was a first visit for all of us. In our headlamps and the early gloom of Nautical Twilight we couldn't see a single larch. +Chip Phillips weighed in, "I think I read that the larch are actually a couple miles further up past Lake O'Hara." Not wanting to waste our pre-dawn efforts we kept going up the steep, switch-back trail in a painful and desperate shuffle-dash. We arrived at a basin filled with larch and ringed by peaks minutes before sunrise. We scattered, trying to get the lay of the land. If it hadn't been a nine mile hike we certainly would have scouted it first. As it was I was just dumb lucky to be in a good place to take this photo when sunrise color began to brush the clouds.

"Wedge" - Of all the places we photographed in the Canadian Rockies, Wedge Pond is not the most dramatic (still plenty spectacular though) or remote, but light conditions and camera choices helped make this image for me. The light was fading and the clouds were streaming overhead with the last light on them, a perfect opportunity for a long exposure with a 10 stop ND filter. You'd think four photographers who claim to know what's up would be completely equipped, but somehow we only had one 77mm diameter filter (mine) and one 77mm diameter wide angle lens (Chip's) among us. I bracketed two exposures (90 seconds and 200 seconds) and then handed the lens/filter combo over to Chip. As the light faded his exposures quickly went over four minutes and Adrian never got his turn (sorry dude). Zack shoots a Sony, so he was out of luck from the start.

Fortunately, the entire time we were at the pond there was a guy on the far shore doing a photo shoot for what appeared to be home made, tie dye yoga pants. Two women and a rotating array of technicolor stretchy pants posed in trees, did head stands and performed synchronized jetés while he did his best Austin Powers impression (yeah, baby, yeah). We were entertained.

"Days to Come". From the Canadian Rockies at the end of September. The Photo Cascadia crew found this view in Banff National Park while scouting around getting soaked one afternoon. We came back near sunset and were treated to breaking clouds and dramatic light.

Canon 5D MK III. 28mm focal length, f/14, ISO 100. Four exposures blended for dynamic range. This was a bit of trick to blend the exposures and develop due to the extreme contrast. Tutorials here: www.outdoorexposurephoto.com/video-tutorials/video-tutorials

"Light From Within". One of nature's special treasures is back lit foliage. Any time the sun is low in the sky I make sure to look toward the light to see what I might otherwise miss. Back lit leaves, grasses and flower petals can glow as if they have their own internal light source. This patch of huckleberry in the Sawtooths of Idaho radiated autumn color and were even laced with frost. I could feel their glow like heat on my face.

Settings: 82mm focal length. 1.6 seconds at f/18 and ISO 100. Polarizer. 5D MKIII.

"Misty Redfish Dawn" from Little Redfish Lake in Idaho a couple weeks ago on the workshop with +David Cobb. We experienced wonderful lake mist like this every morning and great conditions followed me for two weeks up into the Canadian Rockies. I hope this photograph gives you a little glimpse of the experience. Nothing quite like a peaceful, crisp autumn morning in the mountains. Cheers!
