Bloopers and Outtakes!

Things are never dull when you do what we do for a living... and we make our share of mistakes! ;) We had way too much on the Big Island of Hawaii making our Essential Filters course (http://visualwilderness.com/product/efc) - and we thought we'd share a little bit of it with you. Be sure to turn on the sound!

+Brent Mail +Johny Spencer +Jay Patel - Can't wait to get out there and laugh with you guys again soon!

In this video, I quickly demonstrate several steps in a retouching workflow developed by Julia Kuzmenko McKim, a professional photographer and retouching expert.  Here, I'm using two of her popular eBooks as references, both of which I recommend if you're new to retouching.  You can order them here: Creative Retouching Essentials in a Day (New)...

Love this one
 
There's this popular meme going around for a while now, and it got me thinking about if this could work at all.

As a starting point I looked into the estimated # of cell towers In london, which is about 23k cell towers, for a population of 8m people. Say that for WiFi you'd need double the # (after all the signal range is shorter), London would need ~50k theoretical WiFi trees.

After a bit more research I found that on average, a single leafy tree creates enough oxygen per year for 2 human beings / year -- using the estimated 50k WiFi trees, that would create enough oxygen for 100k people, which unfortunately is a tiny, tiny # compared to size of London's population.

So I think forests is still where it's at as far as oxygen production goes .. (and I wish we'd stop cutting those rainforests down)

Talk about dedication! B
 
First Light | Rialto Beach, Washington
www.jasonmatias.com

After a full 36 hours awake through New Years night I was ready for sunrise light. I didn’t want to take a photograph, I wanted to create one. Standing a top a gigantic fallen, 10’ off the ground and safe from the high tide, I waited for more than two hours for the sun’s rays to eclipse the wooded foot hills behind me and kiss this lonely tree. I was freezing, while my camp fire smouldered 50 yards away but a well laid plan is worth the wait.

Introduction

Share Inspire Create - Video Podcast​s & Interviews
Brent Mail Photography - Photo Tips & Courses
Visual Wilderness - Landscape Photography Community and Lessons

Grew up in Africa, lived in the USA and now I'm in Australia. I'm a full time pro photographer, living my dream on the east coast of Australia, stones-throw from the beach. Started and run a photography studio, shooting family portraits (mainly on the beach), models, couples, kids, babies, some landscapes and fine art photography.
Love the outdoors, surfing, kite-boarding, running etc, basically always moving and continually have to pinch myself....living in paradise. Oh yes, it's time now to give back to all those awesome photographers that gave their knowledge to me, so on my website (http://www.brentmailphotography.com) I am teaching everything I know, in video format to those that are interested. Have a great day. Brent

Met and married my wife BEFORE meeting her parents, imagined a shotgun in her dads hands and me running for my life. All good now, I wrote a letter :)
