Don't miss! Ultra HD footage of the Himalayas by the aerial cinema experts at +Teton Gravity Research. Filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen. I trekked this exact route to base camp in 2006 so I really got a kick seeing it from the air. Watch it full screen to see all the details.

Moment of zen: Hallowed. From a trip with +Zack Schnepf to the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona a few years back. This deep twilight light occurred almost every day about 30 minutes before sunrise and after sunset. We later found out that it occurs when sunlight passes through somewhat rare particles (often from volcanoes) high in the stratosphere. It was so rich and permeating that we took to calling it salmon light. Otherworldly light illuminating an otherworldly landscape!

5D MKIII, 16-35mm at 26mm, polarizer. 6 seconds, f/18, ISO 100. I made many subtle and incremental luminosity masked adjustments for contrast and color to showcase the light quality and mood.

Nikon D800/810 owners, how much can you recover underexposed photos without noise? +Kevin McNeal is one of several I know who feel that the Nikon D810 has enough dynamic range to make bracketing exposures unnecessary in just about all light situations. He underexposes to contain highlights and then recovers the darks without noise problems. This is completely counter intuitive based on what I know about the affects of the low signal-to-noise ratio in dark exposures, but it's also really dang cool. My fingers are crossed for upcoming Canon cameras.

On +Tony Kuyper's blog: How to make 16-bit Luminosity Masks. Always advancing his tools, Tony explains how to create 16-bit luminosity masks and includes an action set to speed up their creation. For those who want an entirely 16-bit workflow, here's how.

This week on the blog I am sharing a video chapter from the new edition of my Developing for Extended Dynamic Range tutorial series. In this chapter I demonstrate how luminosity masks and a technique called masking-the-mask are useful in creating better tonal balance in high dynamic range exposures. I hope you find it helpful.

Check out the video blog below.

New on the PhotoCascadia blog: A recap of the "4 truths and a lie" quizzes that appeared in our newsletters throughout 2014. If you missed them in the newsletters you can read them here for some personal, and sometimes amusing, backstory on each of the members. The answers are also included so you can find out which facts were actually complete hogwash.

I'm going to be presenting at the CanAm PhotoExpo in Buffalo in a few days. The NE is new territory for me. Let me know if you are going to be there too. Looks like it will be a great event with some excellent instructors.

Canon 5D MKIII shadow recovery fail! Interesting discussion around Kevin McNeal's Nikon D800/810 shadow recovery article yesterday. I decided to create some Canon 5D MKIII shadow recovery samples for comparison. These samples illustrate why the claimed 3 to 5 stops of shadow recovery with minimal noise with Nikon/Sony borders on unbelievable to us Canon users. With Canon, 2 Stops of shadow recovery in an underexposed image is bad. 4 Stops is atrocious.

Compare to Milan Josipovic's D810 sample with 3 stops recovery. http://on.fb.me/1Ec5LOw

To find out more about why Nikon/Sony seemingly defy the physics of the Expose To The Right (ETTR) principle read Jeff Schewe's excellent article here: http://schewephoto.com/ETTR/

the nikon 610 is also an awesome camera with a great 22mp.  what most people should use.

the mp has nothing to do with DR though.  dont get caught up in that.

McKenzie Woods. One of my favorite things to do in the fall is drive the McKenzie Pass Highway in Oregon to experience the bright autumn vine maple lighting up the dark and dense fir forests. The day I took this photo was overcast with intermittent showers, perfect for moody, balanced and glowing deep forest light. It was a challenge to find an organized and balanced composition that worked within all the visual clutter. For reference, the color in the McKenzie Pass Highway area is usually best in the second half of October.

Info: Canon 5D MKIII, single exposure, 4 seconds, f/16, 24mm, ISO 100, polarizer. Developing adjustments included basic color balance and contrast work, targeted tone and color adjustments using luminosity masks and also dodging/burning type adjustments using the Luminosity Painting technique.

Showing Announcement! The gallery at Houston's Fine Art in Ashland is now showing my photography. They have done a masterful job framing several of my favorite recent pieces, including this one.
There will be an opening reception for ArtWalk this Friday evening. I'm grateful for the opportunity to show at Houston's, so if you are in the area please come in and enjoy the new images and help me show them my appreciation. If you can't make it for the opening Friday, stop by anytime. For me, experiencing large, fine art prints which are expertly framed and lit is the best way to appreciate photography...and all art. Houston's shows a variety of artists in a variety of media, all more talented than I am, so this is a real honor for me.
The art walk is from 5 to 8 PM this Friday. Houston's Fine Art will have wine provided by Platt Anderson Cellars - Ashland's only urban winery.
You can find out more about the ArtWalk at: www.ashlandgalleries.com/events/first-friday-artwalk
