Photo Tour Global Directory™4,302*Meet +Mike Berenson  of http:www//ColoradoCaptures.com and some of his past students as they share what it is like to go on a nightscape workshop adventure with him.*   Mike conducts workshops, tours and has in class training to help photographers advance to the next level in their photography.   You will meet +Kristal Kraft  a Real Estate professional and talented photographer from the Denver Metro area and +Teri Virbickis  and impactologist who specializes in helping people get started in Stock Photography.   Both ladies have taken classes from Mike and have taken their photography to a much higher level by applying some of the techniques he teaches.   The panel will be discussing two Nightscape photography trips coming up. *1.  Learn The Secrets Behind Capturing Incredible Nightscape Images - Multiple Nights In Arches National Park* August 31, 2013 7:00 pm to September 3, 2013 3:00 am  Join Mike Berenson on a multiple night, night photography training event featuring a combination of both in-field instruction and classroom training - all focusing on the wonders and challenges of night photography in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah.  This workshop training event is scheduled specifically to take advantage of dark skies with little to no moonlight - allowing for the best opportunity to capture great nightscape images. Night Photography Training Club Sandwich No we're not talking about lunch, but the 2 classroom sessions sandwiched in between 3 nights of in-field photography workshops sure sounded like a Club Sandwich.  It's not a new approach, but it is an effective way to learn the process from start to finish - learning where and when to go, how to capture great images, and how to bring them to life in post-processing.  Some Of The Locations to shoot: •Double Arch •Turret Arch •Balanced Rock •Delicate Arch •Park Avenue For more details and to sign-up http://www.coloradocaptures.com/arches-national-park-multiple-night-night-photography-training-club-sandwich. *Come post your photos of Moab and join the buzz in this event for the 3 night adventure*  http://goo.gl/XkHDHe   *2.  Spend the night shooting in Rocky Mountain National Park*  September 7, 2013 7:00 pm to 5:00 am  Join Mike Berenson on an overnight photography workshop with demonstrations and hands-on training that focuses on the wonders and challenges of night photography in Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park, Colorado.

Scott Jarvie429,232*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00143

A View To Die For  |  Midtown Manhattan - New York, NY
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Yw

Night shots give such a different perspective on a city. The same shot during the day would feel very different, and I am not sure it would work.

I love how you can see the Bank of America very close on the left and the 1 World Trade Center so far on the right.

This is another shot from my series of images from rooftops in Manhattan. More about how I got this shot on the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Yw

A New World  |  One World Observatory - New York, NY

This is Downtown Manhattan with the Bay in the background. The building in the foreground is the recently completed 4 World Trade Center.

It was a pretty awesome experience shooting from the top of One World Trade Center, and I strongly recommend a visit.

The Siege Of Power  |  Queen's Park - Toronto, ON

Last week I experimented with longer exposures with the drone, and I was blown away. I was able to take 3-second exposures that were perfectly sharp! You got to take a couple of shots because some might be blurry, but overall, it's pretty amazing!

The magenta building in the foreground is the Ontario Legislative Building, where the Legislative Assembly of Ontario sits. It's right in the middle of Queen's Park and the University of Toronto Campus.

The Tide  |  Aqua Tower - Chicago, IL

I went back to images of my trip to Chicago last year to find some unedited images and look what I found!

This the the facade of the Aqua Tower, designed by Studio Gang Architects. It is the tallest building in the world designed by a woman-led firm.

Pan Am Fever  |  Bathurst Bridge - Toronto, ON

Last night marked the closing of the Toronto Pan Am Games. We were graced by a beautiful fireworks display on the CN Tower, followed by a second one at City Hall.

I went to one of my favorite spots in the city to shoot the CN Tower, and it was packed!

Twin Bridges  |  One World Observatory - New York, NY

The views from the observatory at the top of One World Trade Center are simply stunning. 360° of fantastic sights over Manhattan, Brooklyn, New Jersey and of course the bay to the South.

It was a challenge to shoot without a normal tripod and to fight the reflections, but I loved the experience!

In this image, you can see the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge. The tall building that stand in between is 8 Spruce Street, designed by Frank Gehry.

Like A Match  |  Midtown Manhattan - New York, NY

The sky just opened up during sunset, like fire spreading across New York City.

I always have trouble shooting from a long distance in the city, because it's often hazy, which makes it difficult to get something sharp. Fortunately, the latest version of Lightroom (and Photoshop) added the dehaze tool, which comes in pretty handy!

Floating out of this world  |  Ismaili Centre - Toronto, ON

The Ismaili Centre opened earlier this year near the Aga Khan Museum in Midtown Toronto. I love the design by Charles Correa Associates with Moriyama & Teshima Architects.

It is a religious building, where the Shia Ismaili Muslims gather. It is a branch of Islam.

Electric Blue  |  Downtown - Toronto, ON

Downtown Toronto is just by the lake, so it's not rare for us to get some fog. We usually get it early in the morning, but that time I saw the fog around midnight and just went to shoot it.

This is shot with the D750 that I had rented, and I love that camera. The quality of the images is just stunning! It is a very serious contender for my next camera.

Converging  |  111 South Wacker Drive - Chicago, IL

This is the lobby of the Deloitte Tower in Chicago. It is one of the most beautiful lobbies I've seen and I'd love to shoot more of it. Unfortunately, I got kicked out by security after I took a few shots. I'm glad a got a couple of nice shots before that!

Basically, the lobby spirals around the elevator core. What makes it very interesting is that the ascending ceiling is actually the parking ramp. Designed by Lohan Caprille Goettsch Architects, the lobby is a great example of form following function.

Coming Through  |  Queensboro Bridge - New York, NY

Shooting from a rooftop does not always mean looking straight down or being above everything else. Sometimes it just puts you right in the middle of the city and you can get nice level shots.

This is the Upper East Side in New York City, with the Queensboro Bridge in the foreground.

Paramount  |  Midtown Manhattan - New York, NY

I thought I'd share a more architectural shot, though it was still taken from a rooftop in Manhattan.

This is the Paramount Building 1501 Broadway, that was complete in 1927. the tall building behind in the distance is the New York Times Tower.

The glow you can see on the Paramount Building is from the screens of Times Square.

A View To Die For  |  Midtown Manhattan - New York, NY
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Yw

Night shots give such a different perspective on a city. The same shot during the day would feel very different, and I am not sure it would work.

I love how you can see the Bank of America very close on the left and the 1 World Trade Center so far on the right.

This is another shot from my series of images from rooftops in Manhattan. More about how I got this shot on the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Yw

I received my DJI Phantom 3 drone on Monday and here are a couple of pictures of the first flight! I have been waiting for this for a long time, and I am really happy about it. The first flight went great, no issues at all. The drone is quite easy to fly,…

New Google+ Page

I created a page for my commercial architecture photography business. It is linked to my business page on Google Places, so I would appreciate it if you would have a look and maybe follow.

Any help to push my new business is greatly appreciated!

Thanks everyone!

Down (1)  |  W 45th St - New York, NY
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Yw

I love how the glass of the balcony reflects the other side of the street. Out of a dream...
