Low Contrast Image  are easy to process....right?

Not always sometimes the low contrast is result of less than ideal light conditions that leave the scene looking dull and unnatural. Here is one such example....and how we deal with the challenge.

Low contrast scenes use only a fraction of the dynamic range of a camera. Photoshop Layers and Masks are invaluable to process such images.

http://resourcemagonline.com/2015/06/4-simple-ways-to-improve-your-landscape-photography/53629/

+Jay Patel and +Varina Patel of Visual Wilderness have an insane deal going right now. $500 worth of tutorials from some of the best landscape photographers in the world for $49. In celebration of this awesome deal, Jay shared 4 tips to start improving your landscape photography with me. To drive the point, he shared some very old (and not very good) examples from his past, so I only thought it fair to include one of HORRIFIC photos from when I was just beginning. Brace yourself...it's bad.
Check it out in the article, and snatch up the landscape tutorial bundle before it is too late. Sale ends June 9th. Link at the bottom of the article...somewhere below my "Gilligan's Island on Acid" photo. smile emoticon
Thanks for letting me share these tips Jay!

~ California Beamin' - Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park ~

I had the privilege of being in the Redwoods at the right times to see how the light and fog create some amazing light beams through the tall trees. It was so magical. I probably won't have time to edit all the photos I took during my 7 day trip there for awhile so I thought I'd share one I took with my Fuji XT-1.

Do you Shoot Local?

You don't have to travel to the other side of the work to find something beautiful to photograph. You just need to change your perspective! Here, +Elle Bruce  talks about shooting local and offers some encouragement for photographers who don't have the time or money to get away.

In the pursuit to capture natural beauty, is staging a photograph cheating? If so, where do you draw the line? If the image is effective, does it matter?

Here Varina's take on staging the scene and the story behind this shot (and the controversy it sparked!) in the article below. What do you think about contrived images of nature like this one? Let us know!

We will often stage a scene by placing an object (a leaf or a rock) in a particular spot. What do other photographers think about this?

Photography is Art.  As an artist, we can create, or "stage," an image to achieve a goal.  As with most, my rule is do what ye will as long as it harm none.  Most importantly, have fun!
