Night photography and Beginner photographers can go together and they should go together. This articles discussed some Night photography basics for anyone interested.
Taking photos of Landscapes is such a cool activity that connects you to the nature and helps you forget negative thoughts. If your photography is good, then your viewers will benefit in the same ways. Here are a few thoughts on what landscape photography is, and how to develop your landscape photography skills.
The Magic Cloth Technique involves controlling the amount of exposure to different parts of a scene during a slow shutter. The technique involves dodging and burning over a long exposure.
Using a dark cloth (or card) you can reduce the exposure to the sky (or highlights) by covering the front of the lens for part of the exposure time
Taking nature photographs on a beautiful Summer morning at Jokulsarlon with some icebergs reflecting in the glacier lagoon.
I love visiting Goðafoss Waterfall in the late Summer. The sunset colours work so well with this dynamic, North Iceland waterfall. I was facing West around 20.30 on this September evening on a tour around Iceland.
This night photograph, from Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon in Iceland, captured Northern Lights and a comet disappearing into the North sky over Iceland.
This is the best place you could possibly stand to photograph the Northern lights. Once you have captured floating glacier icebergs with an aurora reflecting in the still lake, it is difficult to top.
Northern lights can add an extra dimension to night photography because they add strong colours and depth to the sky. This post looks at processing an Aurora panorama.
Northern lights photography on the Diamond Beach Iceland. This Northern Lights photo was blessed with a superb wash of ocean during the long exposure.
One of the things I love to do with recent Lightroom versions is to play with low contrast adjustments and introducing de-haze.
Coastal landscapes are very effective long exposures because they often give the photograph a strong contrast between the temporary and the permanent.
From silky waterfalls to star trails, long exposure photography captures the world in a way we don’t normally see. These long exposure photographs are popular and capture the viewer’s imagination, so it is worth studying long exposure photography to add some unique perspectives to your portfolio.
This photo was taken early November on a Jökulsarlon tour. I was taking some shots without an ND filter and some shots with. This is one of the shots with the Neutral Density filter – which creates a slight rose tint. This was one of the last photos of the session and everything fells into place when the sky reached it’s best.
We found ourselves in East Iceland looking at a northern Lights forecast. Not to be defeated, we decided to head back to Vestrahorn mountain with a view to doing star trails or some form of night photography.
I’ve been reading about how ISO doesn’t actually increase noise in the camera? Is there any truth to this?
It was horrible conditions that brought about this beauty. We were sand blasted and windswept on the black sand beach, day 2 of a 3 day tour.
