Finding and photographing amazing light is the topic for this podcast with David from Photography Roundtable. We talk about types of light and how to recognize it, being in the right place at the right time, techniques, gear and more. Enjoy and feel free to ask David or me any questions.

+Sean Bagshaw Another good post . . . I must say I laughed when you referred to light meters in past tense.
Someday I will dig my 1-21 degree Pentax Spotmeter out of the shed and try to come up with a good use for it. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

The on camera interview I did with Joseph Linaschke at PhotoApps.Expert is available to view now. This show is a great introduction/seminar into the skills and techniques involved in creating realistic high dynamic range images. Joseph's new recording studio is sweet, but after watching I'm pretty sure I don't have a future in television. ;-) You'll have to be the judge.
You know those HDR image that don't look like HDR? Those fantastic landscape photos where every shadow and every highlight and every drop of color just ooze off the screen? In this interview and live demo, landscape photographer and renowned educator Sean Bagshaw introduces us to his course, "Extended Dynamic Range", available as part of the "Bracketing and Blending Bundle" which also contains the "Bracketing Exposed" course by Jay and Varina Pat...

New Bracketing and Blending Collaboration With Visual Wilderness.

I often mention bracketing and blending exposures to capture high dynamic range light such as in this photo. When a camera can't record all of the light in a single exposure, one solution is to take bracketed exposures and blend the best parts of each one to create a natural and complete final image. I have been teaching these skills in classes and video tutorials for several years now.

Expanding on that I'm excited to announce a collaboration with photography educators, Varina and Jay Patel from Visual Wilderness. Together we have created a comprehensive Bracketing and Blending course for folks who want to learn how to photograph and develop natural looking high dynamic range images.

You can find out more about it at the link below.

Hi +Sean Bagshaw​, can you explain in a few words what changes from your previous collaboration with Tony Kuyper? Is this a different approach to the manual blending technique, or is it a complementary method?

"Earth's Shadow Rising Behind Aoraki"
Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park, New Zealand in twilight on New Year's Eve. The sun had set, the last of its light painting the upper atmosphere pink while the dark edge of night advanced behind the peaks.

Canon 5DSR, 70-200mm, polarizer, tripod. 4 seconds, 200mm, f/11, ISO 100, mirror lock up, cable release.

The west coast of New Zealand's south island is like no place else on the planet. Dense jungle, giant tree ferns, cabbage trees, wetlands, tons of birds. It looks topical, but the latitude and temperatures are essentially the same as the Oregon coast. This was taken in the marsh land near the mouth of the Hapuka River, south of Haast, New Zealand. Late morning sun was providing strong back lighting to illuminate the foliage.
Video instruction: www.outdoorexposurephoto.com/video-tutorials/video-tutorials

Canon 5DSR, 24-70mm f/2.8 L II, polarizer, hand held. 1/50 second, f/10, ISO 250.
Made good use of luminosity masks and the TKActions V4 panel to carefully work with the contrast and colors and establish a softer tonal balance in a scene that had pretty harsh light.

"Blanketed"
Early snow and valley fog back in September in the Canadian Rockies. The light and atmosphere was very dramatic on this morning. I took several wider shots that I like in color. I also decided to use a telephoto to frame a closer view of the mountains, ridges and cloud layers. I specifically wanted to feature the spots of light in the trees and low lying clouds. Since this image is more about shapes, textures and tones I chose to go black and white. I started developing in color for contrast and tonal balance first and then went to black and white and made additional adjustments to best represent that presentation.

Canon 5DIII, polarizer. 104mm, 1/30 second @ f/16, ISO 100.

"Geothermal"
Hot Creek flows through what remains of the ancient Long Valley Caldera in the Sierra foothills near Mammoth. Boiling water, fumaroles and periodic geyser eruptions provide a dynamic foreground with towering peaks as a backdrop. This is one of the eastern sierra locations we visited on a photo trip back in October.

My first blog article of 2016 is a photo journal from my fall tour in the Eastern Sierra with +Christian Heeb. The article has lots of photos and some good resources for folks planning a trip to Ansel Adams country in the future. Give it a read or bookmark it for later.

"Aoraki New Year Sunset"
I took my first photo of 2016 in a place a little different than usual. The past few years my first photo has been taken on the beach in Bandon, Oregon. This year I was with my family in Aoraki Mt. Cook National Park in New Zealand for New Year's. This was the sunset over the southern Alps the first day of 2016. In fact, due to the location of the international dateline just to the east of New Zealand, this is just about the first sunset of 2016 anywhere on Earth other than a few Pacific Islands and very eastern Siberia. I felt it was as fitting and auspicious a start to a new year as I could hope for.

Canon 5DSR, 70-200mm f/4 L, polarizer. Cropped from a wider panorama consisting of five stitched horizontal frames. Each frame was 2 seconds at f/16, ISO 100. The full panorama has more than 27,000 x 6,000 pixels and will print at 90 x 20 inches at 300 dpi with no enlarging. Zoomed in you can see every crack and crevasse in the glaciers on Mt. Cook. The file is so big it almost killed my computer trying to process it :-D

+Massimiliano Fontana - to make super sharp, high detail, really large prints it certainly helps. That's really the only reason. Same reasons as for medium/large format film. Not everyone prints big so this camera isn't for everyone, to be sure.
