Magical Landscapes 1. introduction

Follow me as I explore familiar ground and I introduce you to landscape photography in the landscape that inspired me to take up photography. These youtube vids are only excerpts as the real vids are over 20min each.

Part 1. Pictures taken on day 1. Very cold January afternoon. Step 1 is exploring the landscape and finding compositions with the Esja mountain as the regular background. We stop to shoot mount Esja with a variety of foreground, starting with some snow. 4.30 min with English subtitles.

Part 2. Pictures taken on day 2 and 3 with a demonstration of how to control object proportions using focal length. A nice finish down by the shore with a strong sea-scape. 6.02 min with English subtitles.

Part 3. Pictures taken on the morning of day 4. On the fourth day there was light – revisiting some scenes to take advantage of the light. Excerpt of some basic lightroom processing. 5.35 min with English subtitles.

Part 4. Post processing. I take one of the images through lightroom, photomatix and photoshop.
