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.
