Collections in Lightroom are pretty cool and can be useful for finding images without having to drill through your folder system. Smart collections can make this even easier.
The Grand Teton National Park for lack of better words is well... grand. The peaks jut straight up out of a relatively flat area allowing for pristine views of the Grand Teton portion of the Rocky Mountains. One of the most iconic images of the Tetons comes from Ansel Adams at the Snake River Overlook. This image is one of many which have inspired photographers young and old. Snake River Overlook is one of the many places we will visit as we chase the light.
Anyone can take photographs of chaos. It's easy, just point and shoot but as photographers it is our job to create order from chaos. The deconstruction of an images is a way for you to see what the photographer's thought process was at the time of the capture. Take a moment to study the image itself before moving to the photograph which contains the explanation.
Recently I had the opportunity to use a new product from Breakthrough Photography. They have a new ring which can use not only their square and rectangular holders but also a magnetic circular polarizer. Check out the video!
Returning to the same location again and again can really be benefit to nature photographers. Yes, sometimes you end up posting several photos from that location but it's okay. The point really is to see how dramatic nature can change from day to day or in some cases minute by minute.
Well, I thought for sure I would write an article every day while shooting here in the Grand Teton National Park. Turns out exhaustion is a real thing for Nature Photographers. The latest I have slept here is 4am with the earliest at 2am so please forgive me for the lack of writing. Trust me, there is so much on the way.
