To All Photographers!   Which Browser Are You Using?
This post is not about the best internet browser. What I want to discuss is:

1. what browser are you using to upload and view photographs on-line?
2. is there a specific reason (regarding photography) that made you choose that browser (browsers display different colors)?
3. how do you deal with LR/Photoshop → Monitor → Browsers for displaying your photography?

Now, I believe that no one, universal solution exists. But, I would love to hear your thoughts, what you do and how you approach internet color management in your workflow!

Background:
Once in a while, I happen to get myself messed up in the vast internet color management universe (Adobe RGB/ProPhoto, monitor, browsers) and always (unfortunately) end up trying to find auniversal wo... more »

Geiranger - Norwegian Fjords
I photographed this back in July 2008 during a hike with the most beautiful woman in the world, who later became my wife on 12.12.2012...I digress (and want to keep on digressing, but..). The hike up to Skageflå was a memorable hike with a stunning view (..I`m still trying not to digress). We had arranged for the boat (tourist cruise), which you see in the photograph, to pick us up later that day and I remember how we just made it down again in time. The place we got dropped off is not a regular drop-off spot and had to be arranged beforehand, so we were happy to get back in time.

Some of you might have seen this before on my website, but recently I re-processed it. You probably won`t see what I did with the new version because the changes are quite subtle yet made a big difference on print. Especially, when comparing the old print with the new printside... more »

Hellestø 9
Hello, everyone! As some of you might have noticed, I`ve been off-line for the last 8 months. There`s not one, single reason for this, but rather a culmination of several things where photography project/collaboration work, a ski injury in the mountains and a strong, growing need to live/work without internet (which can be a hassle rather than enjoyment, at times) made me go off-line for almost 8 months. In short, I got burned out and felt totally empty whenever I logged on G+, my blog etc.

It was a long process to get to this point, and it wasn`t easy for me to prevent because I haven`t ever experienced this before and didn`t know what signs to look for. Now I certainly do! One thing led to another and instead of listening to my needs, I kept on working and keeping dead-lines for what I thought that I was supposed to do. I thought I was doing well, though often tired when... more »

In short, I got burned out and felt totally empty whenever I logged on G+, my blog etc.

It was a long process to get to this point, and it wasn`t easy for me to prevent because I haven`t ever experienced this before and didn`t know what signs to look for. Now I certainly do! One thing led to another and instead of listening to my needs, I kept on working and keeping dead-lines for what I thought that I was supposed to do. I thought I was doing well, though often tired when waking up and did not clearly see what was slowly happening to me. Well, it`s a well-known pitfall that practically anyone can experience and it`s easy to push on until it`s too late. Like me. Who would believe (certainly not me..until recently, that is) that one could be so exhausted that answering emails, giving a workshop presentation or even writing a few words on-line becomes an impossible mission? Well, it`s true. The whole ordeal took me several months, but I am fine now and things run smoothly again! By the way, thanks to everyone who sent me concerned emails, and so sorry for not answering them! I hope you now understand why.

Instead of writing a lengthy post about this (alert: a blog post might be made soon though), I would rather like to share one of my photographs from Jæren, on the western coast of Norway. The square format is certainly not my usual MO, but for this series, 1x1 was the one and only after a lot of work with compositions and cropping. These, or similar, subjects have been a personal project of mine for several years now and it`s a great joy every time I return to this place.

And, ladies and gents, as a final word; listen to your heart!
Don`t be judgemental of yourself whenever you need a break from what you`re doing.

*Feel free to look at my recent work on my website: www.leeseungkye.com/recentwork where I will start to upload more new photographs quite soon!

Best Wishes

4 A.M.
As always, when I go spend some days at Jæren (western coast of Norway), my mind enters a state where all I care about is lines, shapes and light.

I`m writing on two blog posts tonight where one of them will speak more about how I think when photographing places like this. Have a wonderful Monday, everyone!

Photography Is Not Just Photography
I just re-published a blog post which was originally published on my old Wordpress-blog back in Nov. 2011. Most posts on the old WP-blog was already deleted when I got my own blog on my own website, but there were a few posts that I decided to keep and this is one of those: http://www.leeseungkye.com/blog/2013/2/photography-is-not-just-photography 

Enjoy your Wednesday, everyone!

Background:
Once in a while, I happen to get myself messed up in the vast internet color management universe (Adobe RGB/ProPhoto, monitor, browsers) and always (unfortunately) end up trying to find a universal working solution to how to display my work on-line..for most people. As you know, on-line photographs are displayed in sRGB, even if you use Adobe RGB or ProPhoto color space in your workflow..a fact that can transform a perfectly good color photograph into a over-saturated, or otherwise strange, one once shared on-line. For me, who also uses a wide-gamut monitor, my photographs often look ridiculous if I don`t create a web-version of my master files before sharing them on my website. Example: the red channel has the tendency to shoot through the roof when converted from AdobeRGB/ProPhoto to sRGB. Creating web-versions can be tedious work, and in general, is a waste of time (if you ask me). But...

My personal preferences:
RAW-files in Lightroom (4.2), which has a default ProPhoto (or Melissa RGB) color space, Windows 7 (64-bit) and use an Asus 24" LCD Wide PA246Q Proart wide-gamut monitor. I know, using a wide-gamut monitor only adds to the frustration regarding displaying work on-line (in sRGB), but does have its advantages for fine art printing. I use both IE9 (not color-managed), because that is the browser most used for people/clients that takes interest in my work, and Firefox (color-managed) and I sometimes use a standard, calibrated LCD-monitor (not my wide-gamut) for on-line viewing.___

Norefjell - Explore
This one is from a sunrise in the Norefjell mountains on a morning back in Dec. 2008. I still remember that particular morning as one of the coldest, windiest mornings I`ve ever woken up to...at any mountain. The wind had already been howling at least 2 days prior to that morning and created many interesting sastrugi-scapes, one of them used as a visual invitation to Ranten Peak (1419m./4655ft.).

While Ranten was so fortunate to be kissing and flirting with the first light, I struggled to control my thoughts, and freezing fingers, to work the composition, buttons and filters. But, in the end..I was the most fortunate one.

Awaken In Monochrome
Here is my first, new release in 2013, and a few notes about it as well.
I am planning a ski trip into Rondane Nat. Park (Norway) this week, as soon as the weather conditions looks promising. I don`t ask for much of the weather though...literally aching to be rejoined with the subarctic, snowy mountain world!

Wish everyone a wonderful Sunday!

Here are my 10 Favorite Photographs from 2012!

*the photograph in the thumbnail below was one of my first photographs that I made with the excellent Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II tilt-shift lens, that I purchased back in February. It is a stitch of 3 exposures (one while shifting down, one without shift and one while shifting up) all while the camera body (Canon 5D Mark II) was secured in one (horisontal) position. This technique produced a high resolution photograph that also might be my nr. 1 choice of all the ten.

Storm
This one was photographed on a trip I made with a friend, who is a videographer, to the southern coast of Norway during a storm back in September 2008. Though I only made three usable photographs, we had a great time in the storm that day, shouting and laughing like maniacs.

Funny that the thing I remember the most about this photograph is how the storm messed up my graduated neutral density filters so much that we had to stop the whole photography business after a short time. Every time I tried to clean the salty residue off my filters (with a microfiber cloth..poor thing) it just got worse. Because of that, all three photographs got a soft appearance, like when shooting in fog, that actually enhanced the moody light/weather conditions that we had that day. Have a wonderful Monday, everyone!

Godøya Afternoon
Seaweed pools at Flø and Godøya Island in the horizon on a summer afternoon.

Normally, it`s snowy already in the Norwegian lowlands, but the snow is late this year. Three facts that I find very interesting: November 2010 was the coldest in over 100 years, November 2011 was the warmest in over 100 years and November this year was the most rainy in over 50 years in Norway! From what I see from other people`s reports, weather has been quite abnormal the last three years in other parts of the world as well. Now, let the snow fall...and may everyone have a fantastic Sunday!

Sastrugi Detail
As much as I love to reflect upon, and photograph, coastal sand dunes, I can also easily spend a couple of hours photographing sastrugi in the winter mountains.

During a ski trip on Norefjell mountain range, back in March 2011, I came across an awe-inspiring area of sastrugi the day after a nasty snowstorm. This particular photograph is actually a hillside in a small valley, where the light was reflected off the hill on the other side. I remember looking at how the light seemed to glow in the solid ice in a most striking, ethereal way, and thinking: What a blessed morning!!

A Circle Question..
When a large number of people add you to their circles, it can be tedious to check out who all those people are if you can`t tell the most recent from the older ones. How can you see the ones that circled you most recently?
As you know, the notification tab might say "These 53 people also added you", but only 6 thumbnails show down at the bottom. I want to see who those 53 are. Anyone?

Rondvasshøgdi Revealed Monochrome
First light on Rondvasshøgdi Mt. (1838 m./6030 ft.) in Rondane Nasjonalpark (Norway) on a cold and windy winter morning back in January 2010.

This was initially intended as a color photograph only, but upon a recent dive into my archives, I re-discovered this monochrome conversion that I also made at the time and just couldn`t resist to share it with you.

Autumn In Dørålen (Rondane Nasjonalpark)
This photograph was first uploaded to G+ in July 2011 (https://plus.google.com/108909492433674629621/posts/ceBrJXiMaHQ), but after a rather bland autumn this year with weak colors in the mountains, I wanted to show off how the northern parts of Rondane Nat. Park (Norway) can look like when the first snow falls early. Never before, or after, have I witnessed such an amazing autumn mountain scene like that morning back in September 2010.

Featured Fine Art Print for November: Autumn Lily
This long-exposure was photographed back in September at a nearby lake (Myrdammen). While enjoying an autumn morning stroll around the lake I stopped at an area where there`s always many water lilies and found a small group that was isolated from the rest. While working on a composition, I noticed that there was subtle motion in the water making the autumn leaves slowly drift by the water lilies. I put on a polarizer, to lengthen the exposure, and hoped that the lilies was not affected by the subtle movement in the water. I was in luck that morning.

Trees By The Sea...and, a New Blog Feature!
Once in a while, I dive into my archives of "maybe, maybe not"-photographs, and this time, I found 4 or 5 that has definitely grown on me over time. See 2 of them in my latest blog post and find out what the new blog feature is! I promise, if you already like my photography, you won`t get disappointed.

This post is re-cycled from my old blog, but after so many new friends and peers have circled me here on G+, I am sure that many of you will like this post! Now, go get inspired. Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone!

Oh, and by the way, I used one of my own photographs as thumbnail as I wasn`t able to display a video-thumbnail.

An Old Friend
This is one of my latest releases on the website (www.leeseungkye.com) and was made on a wet morning...just the way I like it when photographing waterfalls. I`ve photographed this waterfall several years in a row, especially in autumn, but An Old Friend is my favorite. Sometimes, it takes many returns to get it right and with this composition, halfway up the waterfall instead of from the bottom, I managed to surprise some of the people who follow my work, and who take their morning walks or exercise past it, asking me "Where is this?".

I`ve just recently upgraded my system with an Asus 24" PA246 Q Proart (P-IPS/98% or more of the Adobe RBG color space), 12GB RAM, quad-core processors etc. Lightroom 4.2 (64-bit) runs so smoothly and I am generally happy as a camper editing work from the last month! After calibrating the system with Spyder 4 Elite, the Asus... more »

After calibrating the system with Spyder 4 Elite, the Asus displays my photographs with noticebly wider gamut and even the dynamic range is astonishing compared to ordinary good-quality (full HD) monitors. I highly recommend P-IPS monitors for those of you photographers that are about to purchase a new monitor for editing. Next step is to do some test printing to see how I can use this new set-up to achieve finer print quality:-)

Wish every one of you a wonderful autumn!___

Awaken
Just before a cold, autumn sunrise back in October 2010 from Dørålen, NE Rondane Nasjonalpark, Norway.

This is a 15 sec. long exposure (Canon 5D Mark II, 17-40mm f/4 L USM, Singh-Ray LB Warming Polarizer, Lee grad. neutral density filter). I uploaded this to G+ over a year ago, but it really displays my mood perfectly today; looking forward to autumn in the mountains. Hope you don`t mind me sharing it once more. I wish you all an auspicious autumn!

Waterfall In Summer Rain
This was made in Asdøljuvet gorge (Norway) back in July on a warm and humid summers day. It had rained the day before, and of course, it started to rain again while I worked on various compositions of this scene. The sweet taste of the rain drops dripping from my nose, and the rumbling sound of the waterfall, only added to the atmosphere I experienced and further inspired me to photograph other nearby subjects as well throughout that rainy day.

Have a beautiful Wednesday, everyone!

Featured Fine Art Print for August: Clear As A Mountain Stream
..was made on impulse while trying to cross the Ula River in Rondane National Park (Norway) in June 2009.

The more time I spend in the mountains, in the forests, or at the coast, the less time I spend editing my resulting photographic work. I think that I`ve might got heavily light-deprived last winter...and now, I cannot get enough of being outdoors. Furthermore, every time I just look at my computers, I feel tired and want to step outside again. Ha. Any of you ever felt this way?

At least, I`ve managed to add some new work to the website and updated the Featured Fine Art Print for August:-) Phew.

Steet Mountain II
This was photographed back in July 2009. After a midnight hike, I just reached this location in time for sunrise. That year, the summer was very hot and I still remember how the glacier meltwater felt like cool liquid of life in my thirsty throat. Lower down it had been hot, humid and I had a black cloud of mosquitoes to accompany me. Up here, much cooler, no mosquitoes and that faint smell...of naked rocks, lichen and my own sweat.

Bruresløret Detail
One more from Rondane Nasjonalpark (Norway), this time a closer look at Bruresløret waterfall. I`ve often incorporated this waterfall in more traditional landscape photographs, but back in August, 2010, I was particularly drawn to the warm/cool contrasts of light and rocks as the sun was getting low. Out of 14 quite similar photographs, all with minute variations in composition, this is the one that I felt had the most pleasing balance and energy flow.

If a composition does not have some sort of coherent combination of energy flow, balance and light, it does not matter how well one is versed in the art of composition. For me, the most essential part of a composition is what one does not actually see.

Hello everyone!
I haven`t been busy with social media lately, I know, but...I have been busy with travelling and photography! I have seen wonderful things, learned so much and (after a winter of being cursed by no light, unexpected mountain storms and whatnot) the light is finally back. A well of inspiration has emerged inside of me. I am sure, you photographers, artists or writers, understand how it feels when the path is once again seen clearly. Unleashed, freed and focused.

Before I start sharing some of my backlog of photography, I thought I`d just say hello with this unplanned self portrait from Jæren (western coast of Norway), 2 in the morning (almost sunrise, in fact) and listening to Bob Marley. All while fooling around with a headlamp and a flashlight and waiting for the sun to rise. Have a wonderful day, everyone! I`ll be back withsome &... more »

Ray of Light
Backlit ferns in Asdøljuvet Gorge, Norway. May 2011.

It`s late morning and the sun has risen just high enough to cast a few rays of light down into the gorge through the trees. The playful twitter of two birds and the sound of the river, amplified between the gorge walls. I spot a small group of backlit ferns on the other side of the river. The thin ray of light highlight the ferns. The ordinary becomes extraordinary. Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone, and Happy Earth Day!

In this photograph I decided to use f/4 with my Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L USM lens; a quite large and unusual aperture to use with a wide-angle lens for this kind of photograph. I made this choice to take advantage of the lens vignette and to soften the details that surrounded my subject in order to make the ferns stand out.

Of course, the effect that I am talking about does not show well in this small web-version, but does make a big difference when printed relatively large.

Ranten II
As the early spring seems to be in a hurry to melt the snow, I suspect that this photograph might be the last winter mountain scene that I am able to make until next winter. For me, the nordic winter light is one of those things that makes Norwegian mountains unique to photograph and I sure will miss skiing under a starry sky at night. Now, I look forward to a much more comfortable season; summer, with hiking and little sleep (due to the evolution of the sun in the north). Wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Earlier, I wrote a blog post on a certain "dark edge issue", or mirror occlusion, that occurs when using 12mm (max.) upward shift with the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II-lens. If you recognize this photograph, it is probably because I used the in-camera... more »

Enjoy The Spring II
Here is another result of me having fun, this time with a macro lens..and a damsel fly. Damsel flies are shy insects and the best time to photograph them is at sunrise when they are least active due to moist which makes their wings heavy. As soon as the warm sun has dried their wings, they become active and makes it much harder to sneak up on them.
This funny guy sat on a grass in the shadows and while I was doing minute adjustments to the composition I noticed that whenever I moved to the left, the damsel fly moved to the right just enough to watch me with one eye while the other eye was hidden behind the grass. And, when I moved to the right, it moved to the left. Can you imagine how funny this was?? I probably played peek-a-boo for quite some time before I started photographing it. So, how did I manage to make this portrait? Here`s... more »

And, when I moved to the right, it moved to the left. Can you imagine how funny this was?? I probably played peek-a-boo for quite some time before I started photographing it. So, how did I manage to make this portrait? Here`s how..

Whenever I do macro photography, I always carry my wife`s smallest make-up mirror in case I find myself in situations like these. Damsel flies are quite small and a flash, or a reflector, would have lit up the grass and made the photograph messy. To make this photograph work I needed focus only on the damsel fly against the backdrop of a forest in sweet morning light. The mirror I used is no larger than the nail on my thumb, and still I had to cover half of it in order to prevent any light on the surrounding grass. So...
...my tips for photographing damsel flies is to do it before/at sunrise when they are least active and to carry a very small make-up mirror (or similar) to cast light on these tiny creatures. Have fun! And, remember to treat them nice!!___
