Iceland 2014 – It Begins

flattr this!

Reykjavik, here I am! I spent the other day out exploring the area a bit, of course with my camera. We had a wonderful sunset and Mt. Esja and the clouds presented quite a show. This was also a great test run for the Canon 100D/SL1. You’re welcome to venture a guess which of the pictures are from the venerable 5D Mark II and which ones have been taken with the baby DLSR.

ESJA

By the way, I arrived at Keflavik airport outside Reykjavik two days ago. My luggage arrived yesterday. Yes, I’m lucky like that. Which is why I went out to a tourist shop on a Sunday (Iceland shops are typically closed on Sundays) and bought an original Icelandic Sweater.

Cleaning Shoes – Digitally

flattr this!

Every now and then a photo session turns into such a spontaneous creative endeavour that you don’t want to interrupt it to do something mundane as cleaning something up.

While I was shooting the band, I realized that I would have to do some digital clean-up later, but the spirit of the moment was so strong that I bit the bullet and went with the flow. I’m glad I did. In this video you can watch over my shoulder as I use Lightroom and Photoshop to clone dirt and a logo out of a pair of red soles. A 30 minute session condensed into 3.5 minutes.

tfttf621 – Special: Brothers and Mountains

621

TFTTF Special.

It’s the new year, and one of the bit things coming up is the Everest Trek in May 2014. On this tour Chris, Jon and Monika will take photographers up to Everest Base Camp, through the gorgeous Gokyo valley and as it gets closer, participants are starting to have more questions, about Kathmandu, about travel, about what paperwork is needed, questions how to get around, about what photo gear to bring, about altitude and how that influences your body.. just lots of questions.

To answer some of the questions, Chris invited Jon Miller of The Rest of Everest – and Peter, Chris’ brother for a chat. Peter will be on this year’s Everest Trek and he is the one who will ask the questions.
